After much debate and some field testing, I decided that I would best be served with a sturdy tomahawk in my BoB. I settled on the lightweight (relatively) Cold Steel Trail Hawk. After some tests, I came to the conclusion that it needed a better grip surface, so I sprayed it with Rustoleum textured paint, in a charcoal grey color. It's plenty tough for gathering firewood. It holds its edge well, and can be easily resharpened with a few passes with a file. The hammer face on the back of the blade is very useful for pounding stakes and general hammering. I got it for about $25 at a gunshop/hobby shop in my area, and you can find them on the 'net all day for that price. I'll post pictures, if anybody is interested.
