Nothing makes you feel manlier than being out in the woods for a few days with your buddies, throwing back some brews, swapping stories, and just living it up in the wild. Since roughing it requires a lot of basic skills like building a fire, cooking your meals with very little utensils, and sleeping on the ground, it would be nice if there were other tools to make outdoor scenarios a little more convenient.
Canadian brand, Base Camp X, who is best known for their durable axes, has come up with a convenient multi-purpose tool; The Wendigo. This tool is designed to be an alternative to the hatchet, which we’re all thankful for. The hatchet is probably one of the least favorite items of the camping world, so a replacement is more than welcome.
Thanks to the sharpened chisel tip, hacking blade and hardened hammer pommel, Wendigo hacks, chops, chisels, pries, crushes and smashes just about anything in its path. Seriously, you don’t want to mess with this thing.
Every Wendigo chopper comes from Nepal, and is hand-forged from 5160 high carbon steel and finished with Rosewood handle scales. It’s also available in 8″, 10″, and 12″ blades and even includes a hand cut leather sheath. Fancy!
Looks like every back country explorer’s dreams have come true now that Wendigo has emerged. If you weren’t already a bad ass at camping, then it’s time to level up!
