The M48 Tactical Survival Hammer from United Cutlery is the perfect companion for hiking and camping. With a 37 3/8" overall length, it's great as a walking staff, and the cast stainless steel, black oxide-coated head can pound practically anything into submission with ease. The curved back spike is an effective breaching tool and a great defensive alternative to the stout hammerhead. The spike and hammer together make an excellent handle for a fully functional walking cane. The 30 percent fiberglass handle is nearly indestructible, and the hammerhead is attached to it with metal bolts. The shaft includes a rubber toe on the end for improved traction.
