This superb Rifleman's Tomahawk from Cold Steel, made of drop forged 1055 carbon steel, features a factory-honed cutting edge and two sticking points on its cutting edge for throwing. It throws extremely well. The Rifleman's Hawk has a traditional American hammer-head style butt for hammering stakes.
I have 8 plus style of Tomahawks and most are either too slight or petite for serious work or use or too awkward or really just camp axes. The Rifleman is the BEST middle ground. My best size up Axe is a husqvarna carpenters axe from about 20 years ago and the next size down Tomahawk might be a crkt woods chogan. The Rifleman LOOKS and FEELS that Part of 18th Century Tomahawk (especially if you clean it up) and the Cutting Head is VERY useful. If you want it to work it CHOPS, it slices, it splits. If you want to throw it GO AHEAD the replacement handles are CHEAP and very available. This is the Happy Medium Hunting Grounds of Hawks.
Visually I loved the design of this 'hawk, and was excited to get my own. Unfortunately, when I finally had it in hand, I found the head to be too heavy to be wielded properly. With the thin tomahawk handle (as opposed to a more traditional handle) I found it difficult to control, and it always seemed lie it wanted to twist in my hand. It has the head weight of a full sized axe with the grip of a tomahawk, and ends up being inferior to both.While ultimately it is still useable, I would recommend either the Pipe Hawk or Trail Hwak instead.
