Description
 

It's called Backcountry Axe for a reason - many actually - starting with its GRN handle with solid fiberglass core, joined to the cutting head for increased handle strength. Its forge head gives it increased strength and durability, while a cutout decreases friction when cutting. The flat back is perfect for hammering tent stakes into hard ground. But baddest of all is the saw hidden in the handle, featuring an auto-deploying hand-guard. With two tools in one, you can clear twice the brush, twice as fast. Then stow it in its molded sheath with belt clip for safe and secure carrying.

    SOG Warranty Information

    All SOG products are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original purchaser. This guarantee is voided (as determined by SOG) by misuse, abuse, improper maintenance, or alterations of the product and does not cover any normal wear or tear that might occur. Using your SOG folding blade or fixed blade knife for any purpose other than cutting or puncturing is considered abuse and may void your warranty.

    Guarantee Claims

    All guarantee claims should be directed to the factory. U.S. claims should be sent prepaid and insured. For international claims: call, write, or email SOG's Warranty Dept. for information.

    We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages that do not arrive to our facility.

    SOG reserves the right to the repair or replacement of a product at our discretion. Products that are discontinued and not repairable will be replaced with a gift certificate of the last MSRP value, as determined by SOG, which can be used for a future purchase.

    SOG Unconditional Pocket Clip Warranty

    Pocket clips can be broken if they are accidentally caught on foreign objects while wearing. To help prevent such occurrences, SOG recommends that you wear your knife in your front pocket, with the knife inside your pocket. If, for whatever reason, your clip bends or breaks and you would like to receive a replacement, fill out the Clip Request Form, or email/call SOG's warranty department. Damage to a knife handle because a clip has snagged is not considered "normal," and any such damage will be assessed under warranty. Learn more about replacing pocket clips in Knife & Tool Care.

    Broken Blades

    In the unlikely case that your knife blade breaks, we will do a hardness test on it to see if it is within specs and therefore eligible for replacement.
