    I love old-timey weapons and stuff in general, to include tomahawks. I have a nice one that a good friend made for me, the same was as you OP, from a ball pein hammer.

    I have other friends who are crazy about them. I have seen suggested "be ready" vehicle loadout lists that included three tomahawks.

    For me they are novelty/nostalgia only. I've played around with mine quite a bit and you can get to where throwing it, you almost "can't miss" at a certain distance. But for the zombie invasion / nuclear disaster / whatever scenario, if I found one in my otherwise filled-with-necessities vehicle, I would throw it out to make room for something else. As a weapon of course it would always be better than nothing but for the size and weight something else would be better. As a camp tool it is waayy inferior to an axe. If there is no axe and only a hatchet, in my opinion the hatched is a way more useful tool and it makes a better weapon.

    And while they have uses such as getting in to dry wood inside, axes and hatches offer up a lot of possibilities on injuries to intensify or create a survival situation versus just picking up hand breakable stuff.

    This.

    I have a SOG and a Longhunter from 2Hawks. I LOVE the Longhunter(especially over the SOG but it was a gift), but as an axe or field/bushcraft tool, it just isn't as effiecient as a hatchet or small axe of similar quality.
    "Warriors"

    Out of every 100 men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets. Nine are the real fighters and we are lucky to have them for they make the battle. Ah, but the one...one is a Warrior, and he will bring all the others back.
