    Tomahawks anyone?

    I love tomahawks. Been forging a few here and there out of ball pein hammers and forge welding a piece of H13 into the blade (not for sale). Anyone else enjoy them?

    I love 'hawks as well. Can't afford the nicer customs anymore, but I have few beaters hanging around.

    Same here. Plus, weight vs utility questions.
    But I do like a good hawk

    I have some that came in a Battlebox when I used to do that. No clue how to use it though.

    I have an American LaGana tactical, an older one.
    I also have a 2Hawks (Polaris trading) Warbeast.

    I have a SOG tomahawk. It's pretty cool.

    Thing is, not sure about their "field utility".

    Been using a short machete for years, camping and hiking. It's truly the do-all camp tool.

    Thought of the tomahawk as an American classic, have been out with it a couple of times, and been kind of disappointed with its overall practical utility.

    Having both a "tactical" and a field style hawk, I don't find a lot of practical field uses for the tactical one. While soldiers would use the point to gain entry to vehicles, or skulls, I haven't found a field use yet. The cutting edge is narrow and flat, coupled with light weight, doesn't make for a good chopper, at least in field use. A lot of "rifleman" style hawks follow more primitive designs, and have curve to the blade. My Warbeast has this. It also has a hammer poll on back. It's a bit larger and heavier than most, but it chops well, like a small axe. On the top and bottom, behind the cutting edge, there are back edges. If you sink it, rocking it back and forth, it will cut its way out. I like it better than the tactical hawk, in use, at least from my limited time with hawks.

    I use a Cold Steel, then have working replicas of original French ones from 1720s, when I portray early French milicien (militia). These events have both shooting and knife & hawk throwing contests, which pretty cool. Including the longest distance “1 throw stick”.
    Given that 10-shots are a group and 5-shots may be a favorable trend ... know that just one good 3-shot group can make you an instant internet superstar!
