This timeless tool is ready for new adventures.
From the trenches of WWI comes the Chogan™ Mattock, a tool purpose-built for portability. Based on the common digging tool used by British infantry, the head can be removed from the handle for compact storage in your vehicle, on a backpack, or in your tool shed. What’s more, that same handle is compatible with the tomahawk head from the Chogan™ T-Hawk, giving you the option to wield two tools with one handle for either more versatility or redundancy.
- Forged Tough: 1055 carbon steel provides durability and edge retention
- Enhanced Protection: Black coating improves corrosion resistance
- Multi-Purpose Utility: Adze blade scraping and cutting or use spike for penetration tasks
- Durable: Tennessee hickory is a dense material that withstands hard use
- Fire Treated: Tennessee hickory handle is burnt to add dark textures
- Designed by Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical in Chattanooga, Tennessee
The head is made of drop-forged 1050 steel for extreme toughness and durability, and the handle is fire-treated Tennessee hickory. Together, they make for a capable tool that comes out swinging and holds up to abuse. As a mattock, the head has both a broad blade and a spike, the latter of which is perfect for breaking up tough ground.
Beyond the trenches, designer Ryan Johnson also drew inspiration from his own life in creating the mattock. In his words, he had “a lot of experience playing in the dirt” as a kid. He grew up gardening and searching for buried artifacts, and learned early on the importance of a good digging tool. But unlike your garden-variety pickaxe, the Chogan™ Mattock is much smaller and lighter, built to be taken on adventures. When paired with the optional woven nylon carrying sheath, it’s the perfect companion for overlanding and camping.
