Heaping helping of 'hawks

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Heaping helping of 'hawks

Post by Storm Crow » Sun Nov 15, 2015 10:23 pm

I have not posted tomahawk pictures like I meant to. So, in no particular order, tomahawks I've made in the last half a year or so. All are 1/4" 4140, black oxide finish, TeroTuf scales, flared stainless steel tube rivets. Kydex sheaths with a variety of carry hardware.

Ok, I should be pretty well caught up. :)

I really like the few with the long handles and the flat/hammer back end, seems incredibly useful.

Thanks, Merovech. I knew not everyone would want a spike on their 'hawk, and the hammer poll will do a lot of impact damage if it ever gets employed in combat.

I know a lot of military use the spike in the desert and combat operations, I've always been worried I'd spike myself in the head with the wrong end. For me, one sharp end is enough!

Im more of a camper/civilian/grey man anyway, a hammer would be of much more use to me than a spike.

Interesting. Could we get some numbers on weight and various lengths? Are the suited more for combat or are they suitable for camp use?

That's also an interesting sheath design. It does look like it would take a little bit of finesse to get it back in though, especially one handed.

Sventhewarrior - Here's an hour and twelve minutes of me talking about them and demonstrating them:

As for the sheath, yes it is harder to sheathe than unsheathe, but it's a fast deployment. If it was top eject, it'd be easier to sheathe but slower and harder to unsheathe. There are always tradeoffs, and I'd rather be able to pull it quickly. :)

They're a nice balance of camp/utilitarian and combat.
