Description

Description

The design of the "Tomahook" goes back to the influence of the Celts, Vikings and Indians. Thanks to its versatility, it has a very high level of functionality.

The Tomahook can be used as a very efficient hatchet with its broad and sharp cutting edge. The upper end of the ax head is sharpened as a chisel. You could even skin a deer, or use it in an emergency situation. The ability to engage the handle directly and securely behind the cutting edge, enables detailed cutting. Likewise, this recess can also be used as a hook. The back of the ax head has a rounded point of impact, that can be used as a glass breaker.

The special design of the Kydex sheath allows the axe to be covered for many working and cutting applications. The recessed G-10 scales are not only very safe, but comfortable. The best SK5 carbon steel is used with a corrosion resistant black coating.

The flat axe

My first impression was, "Whoa, that's really flat," and that I have knives with thicker handles. I have been using it to process an ash tree into walking sticks and rustic furniture, and this axe has really grown on me. The scales leave the metal exposed to keep from getting cracked by a bad hit, and the one-piece design means that you have tremendous edge awareness and control. The unusual handle shape gives you 3 good grip positions: behind the beard for fine work, at the center bulge for medium power, and locked in by the cap at the end for full strength. As for weight, it is more like a hatchet than a hawk, and the narrow blade profile lets it hit hard and deep. The balance is more towards your hand due to the heavy handle but it doesn't take long to get used to the different physics. It does require gloves or a grip covering for prolonged use, and it is a workout; at 5'10" and 200 lbs, I switch arms far more frequently than I ever did with my Ragnar's bearded axe. The steel takes and holds a good edge with no corrosion problems and no damage at all yet. So far this is becoming one of my favorite tools for an afternoon of beavering around.
Not what I thought.........

This hatchet is functional, but not at all what I thought it would be. I felt it was a bit heavy for routine carry(and I'm big, 6'2" and > 300 lbs), so I went to a blacksmith and had him section out portions of the handle (under the G10 scales) to lighten things up a bit. The steel is thinner than it seems here, and there was a bit of minor rust on it when I got it. Even with the scales, the grip is odd/thin for me. After saying all this, I do have to admit that the hatchet is very functional, chops and cuts with more vigor that it would seem to, and has been effective in doing whatever axe work I have put it to. It could certainly act in a tactical role, and cause some real damage. I don't know, just seems different to me than what it appears to be here in print. You may really like it!
