    What kind of casual do you take me for?

      Warhammer is always a nice choice.

      Personally, I prefer mace.

    • Do you hang a gutted pig carcass in your basement and beat on it with your warhammer?

      Those were the best parts of the Cold Steel demo DVDs.

    “Shock ‘N Awesome Tactical Tomahawk” …

  • Bear The Grizzly

    Yay! Another made in china tomahawk.

  • G0rdon_Fr33man

    For 133 USD, it should be hand-forged in damascus-steel.

    • john huscio

      Having anything made in real Damascus steel (not the surface patterned garbage) would cost a lot more than $133…..

  • john huscio

    I have a twohawks warhawk in inventory right now, but I’ve been thinking hard about going to a solid one piece tomahawk for a while now

  • jacqueshacques

    Oh sweet, heavier than a knife but not big enough to do any meaningful woodcutting! Glad you can’t use the poll to drive nails or stakes, that might be important in a survival situation.

    • Grindstone50k

      But you can THROW it at the enemy when ISIS invades the mall! I totally keep my skills honed by practice throwing mine in the warehouse behind the RUE21.

  • Will

    I have my parents old Shapligh Hardware hatchet. Strong, reliable, free and takes an edge capable of being used to skin a deer.
    Not pretty…until you use it.

  • iksnilol

    Milk drinkers and their “tactical tomahawks”. Either add some rails or call it a regular tomahawk (though I doubt it qualifies as a tomahawk due to the cuved shaft).

    Moving aside from being a negative Nancy: what does this tomahawk offer that makes it worth 130 USD?

    • Grindstone50k

      Tacticalness.

  • DaveP.

    “Tactical Tomahawk”. Yawn. Wake me when you have a strategic option.

    • Drapetomanius

      Amateurs talk about tactics; professionals worry about logistics.

      • Grindstone50k

        Logistical Tomahawk…

  • Epic Eric

    This needs more rail space.

  • Don Ward

    George Washington: I cannot tell a lie. This tactical hatchet is effing stupid.

  • guest

    Where does one learn to use a tomahawk? I assume it’s intended for use as a melee weapon–not that there’s anything wrong with that–but it’s not like I can just go to the local indoor pistol range with it and start swinging it at targets. Well, I suppose I could–but only once.

    • Tassiebush

      Paladin press have a book or two on the subject.

      • Last of the Mohicans has some sweet ‘hawk action. Some dual-wielding ‘hawk and knife bits too.

        I now need to form a band called Sweet Hawk Action…

        • Cleophus

          Don’t forget the Mel Gibson movie “Patriot.” Remember, “aim small, miss smalll!”

    • john huscio

      There are people out there who teach tomahawk and bowie knife fighting (hawk in one hand, bowie in the other) there are a couple guys in Louisiana (nawlins) that do this, the names escape me at the moment

  • Grindstone50k

    About 10 years behind, Browning. “Tactical” hawks are sooo passe now.

    • Phil Hsueh

      But if it works and works well does it matter much where it’s made?

  • Sianmink

    It’s Canada. you need to be prepared in case of opportunity lumber.

  • They can be fun to throw. You can get an old style from the 1800’s or one of the newer styles. Most of them are fairly easy to learn on.

  • One of mine. It’s one solid piece of steel so it won’t break throwing it.

  • Sulaco

    Use caution. Hawks are illegal in some states including Texas from what I have read.
