    SOG Tomahawk Mods


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Post yours!

    So far, I wrapped the handle in white paracord to improve chopping grip. I hope that this won't be as brutal on my callouses as the plain nylon handle. Also, I added a simple lanyard to the handle.

    I'm looking to dye the handle. Any suggestions? I think a dyed handle would look great with a stripped head.

    What do you think?

    I modded the edge and sharpened the spike.

    I got some big rubber washers from the hardware store. The handle is fatter at the bottom, by the way. Then I wrapped that with some camo form tape. I like it, I can use my Fasthawk with bare hands, has cusion and grip.
    I've been thinking about re-working the edge as well. Sharpen the spike, why didn't I think of that?!! That has got to help with penetration, it's not so great from the factory.

    I am planing some mods to mine as well. I am trying to find out who made the titanium handle on babakanoosh45's SOG fusion. LOVE THAT HANDLE ! I am looking to put a sharp beard on it & sharpen the spike a little more. Handle is already too fat for my hand.

    With a sharpened spike and the front edge sharpened and the top and bottom points taken down a bit and the beard sharpened. I like mine alot better. Cuts better, penetration is better.

    I e-mailed mr.kpj ---no response yet. (who is the person who made the titanium handle for babakanoosh45's SOG Fusion Hawk). Thats awesome. I wonder if he still makes them or would make one from aluminum for me ?

    it was indeed tuff coating! I had it soaking in KleanStrip for almost two hours...still seemed immune...but when I washed it off, and took the 100 grit to it, it came right off. Im very pleased by the gunmetal grey that was under the coating!

    One note, I dabbed some PCB Etchant on the SOG logo to get it in the metal good....it literally stripped the coating off in under 10 minutes! I had to very quickly rinse it off so as not to start etching an oval in the metal! Im surprised, spraypaint will be eaten off by Kleanstrip in just a minute...but PCB wont go thru it...yet on the SOG coating...the opposite was true!

    Where can I find me some of this etchant?

    How does it work? If I engrave something only minimally with a needle will it eat up that area? I attempted to do something similar with a 9v and salt water but it barely affected the metal. You can barely see my etching attempt when the light hits the knife in the right way.

    RadioShack sells it, in the soldering supplies.

    Old thread i know but has anybody ever modded the SOG axe head? I was thinking of removing the spike end, right up to near the handle to make a sort of hammer poll.
