    The ultimate Djebel multi tool! The hammer part should be particularly useful for trail side repairs.The axe can be used to remove all of the superfluous weight (racks etc). :-)

    TR, that's No 16 on this list. Don't think they make them anymore.

    The closest thing that comes up on Rakuten or Amazon JP is this:

    Hatchets come in handy if you need to chop through a fallen log blocking the trail. Or, of course, for chopping firewood once you get to camp.

    I think a folding saw is going to be much more efficient for that. James K carries one and used it the last time we rode in Chiba to clear the trail where a tree had fallen. We would have been there all day trying to chop away at it with that little hatchet...

    as mark said, i dont see that you are going to be able to chop through much of a log with a hatchet in a decent amount of time. a saw is lighter and more practical, IMO.

    i have always been able to burn big logs in half on the campfire myself.

    check out these pocket chainsaws:

    The hatchet in the first post is probably not very practical, but a proper camp hatchet works all right. I've used one to chop through logs and it gets the job done. A little saw like that pocket chain saw might be better and smaller, though. It sure looks cool.

    no, but if you throw a hatchet and miss they could pick it up and use it on you!

    i prefer bear spray for defence against two legged animals myself!

    i have one of these for walking the dog. not sure how effective it would be but it is a damn good rechargable flashlight and i think most punks in japan would be scared off just by cracking it.

    This tool is in the same extinct league as my missing Tire Wizard. Man I miss that tool.

    Anyone else ever had one of those? Anyone selling one?

    For cutting through weak links maybe? You know, on a chain fence, that sort of thing. Why, what did you think I meant?

    oh, i see. again, i prefer bear spray for THAT guy who insists on bringing a big ADV bike and burdening the team on a ride that EVERYBODY else is riding a small offroad bike. no need to go over to lethal weapons!
