Customer Reviews

Camillus CAMTRAX 3-in-1 Hatchet is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tool Needed a hatchet for camping. I ride a chopper with very limited storage (Bitwell bag strapped to sissy bar). After researching for days I picked this one up. Very surprised at the quality of this tool. Hanging from my belt it feels good. Nice weight but I'm mostly using it to get my fire started and cut small spruce branches for under bedding and hammering in pegs etc... It's always hanging from my belt while in the bush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't generally like 2-in-1's but... I've always been incredibly weary when it comes to any 2-in-1 tools designed for any given purpose. There's just something about sacrificing quality for the sake of efficiency that, in my experience, doesn't always turn out so well. So, naturally, I started out with a skeptical bias when unpacking the Camillus 3-in-1 12" Hatchet/Saw/Hammer combination tool.Happy to say that Camillus blew me away with this piece.Before I delve in to my pros and cons, it's worth tempering expectations a bit.. People will sometimes look at a product like this and expect it to function like both a bow-saw and a fireman's ax - that's not necessarily how things work.Laws of physics force the Camtrax to make a few sacrifices - you won't have the most momentous swing of an ax and you won't have the most heavy-duty sawing tool available, but what you will have is an extremely versatile, space-saving tool that grants the user unparalleled mobility through the woods.The 2.75" titanium stainless-steel ax blade is effective in basic applications, but it doesn't necessarily offer much in terms of force and an impacting strike - this could be caused by the fact that the Camtrax sees a more even weight distribution (due to the saw blade and folding mechanisms built into the handle) than most hatchets possess; whereas the head should be heavier, and it is, it's not as heavy as it ought to be, and this translates into a weaker impact with each strike.Still, the blade is strong and sturdy, and what it lacks in size (it has a comparatively small cutting edge), it makes up for in versatility and agility. Though not a blade to take into the woods if you're planning on actually living out the rest of your days there or constructing a multi level tree house, it's more than what's necessary for a few days in the wilderness or any kind of temporal excursion.Folded into the Camtrax is a 7" lockback saw that most resembles a pruning saw, without the curved blade structure. The traditional pistol grip style handle is instead replaced by the handle of the hatchet, which actually and somewhat unbelievably, offers a solid and controlled grip.The blade has some gnarly and vicious teeth that cut in both directions, making speed the primary wow factor of the blade. And the fact that a pruning saw would be found attached to a survival hatchet is rather fitting. The only catch - pun intended - is that the saw blade tends to catch if not kept perfectly straight.Fresh 2-4 inch tree limbs could be cut in less than dozen seconds and it's easy to maintain the control of the blade given the grip of the teeth, even easier to get going with a considerably fast sawing motion. Overall, the fact that a folding saw attached to a hatchet handle performed so well in actual use had me ultimately assured that this product (affordable to begin with) is more than worth the buy.The nylon sheath is brilliantly designed with every detail in mind. The construction reflects painstaking attempts to get everything right, and that's something that should be immediately appreciated when it comes to any outdoor tool. It offers a reversible belt clip and bottle opener and a molded design that's so snug-fitting that it takes a few attempts to slip back onto the hatchet blade; while this sounds like an inconvenience, I'd much rather have as firm a cover as possible rather than a hatchet rattling around in an overly large sheath.Packs get heavy very quickly, and two of the bulkiest tools that can be brought along have been condensed into one for the sake of convenience. Personally, I'm not living in the woods, and I don't need a lumberjacks ax to get by on the daily. Anyone looking for a hatchet would be mistaken to skip over this piece, which offers alternating ways to cut through vegetation without adding weight and bulk.In this case, the efficiency sacrificed in each swing by the somewhat counter-intuitive weight distribution and the smaller style hatchet blade is well worth the actual convenience of having two (I guess I'll concede and say 3) tools amalgamated into one easy-to-pack-and-carry tool that makes travel and movement in the wilderness all the more maneuverable.It may come down to just that - if you're looking at a stationary excursion, consider bringing another tool (or set of tools that you'll have to painstakingly lug into the woods with you). If you're looking at an expedition with some mobility in mind, this is an astounding product that must be included in every pack.For me, the few extra cuts are definitely a worthy sacrifice for the extra mobility and maneuverability afforded to the trekker.

Ask a question

Is the saw blade replaceable at all? I see the answer to the 1st question was a no for "...in the field..." so is it a special blade or something?
