There are chomping tools and fighting tools. Some cross over, most don’t.

Earlier when travel was more likely on foot the small axe was carried by those of the group that didn’t have the skill to fight with a hawk. Those who did carried one better suited for that use.

When horse travel became most common I am of the opinion an axe was carried for chopping and hawk was more of a weapon and less of a tool.

CC called me and they can't ship to my PO Box due to the "axe" part, need a physical address. So I canceled the order BUT I see there is this one online that is in Canada and ships to me.

Nice looking heavy duty tomahawk....made in USA too.

I never even thought to check my local Cabelas as well, looks like they carry this one:

Here’s mine, it’s a Beaver Bill…👍👍
It’s on its 3 rd handle, but it’s been thrown some now..
Pic was in 2014


I’ve done some chopping with it, but it’s mostly to split kindling & for throwing...👍

Same hawk and cover 8 years later….

The split handle is the reason you want too always throw the knife first!

Or go pull the hawk before throwing your knife… We live & learn from our mistakes …🥴

I am looking at some tomahawks, something simple and easy to pack on my belt. This one looks ok, anybody use one of these or something similar? Think I'd want to oil or age that handle though.


Get one with a poll (flat head for hammering).

Roper man, you need to rig that saddle up with a nice leather sheath for that hawk. Then slip that rifle into the scabbard, through the pouch over your shoulder, wrap a good wool blanket into the canvas bedroll, fill them saddle bags with jerky and head out on a early fall hunt!!
Oh, that would be a journal I would read.

Be safe with a tomahakin.........One morning in the dark , my son had his hawk just put through the back of his belt. A couple of us were riding in the back of a pickup truck bed on the way to where we hunt. My unknowing son sat down next to me , with his unprotected ax blade and almost cut one of my fingers off. Was near to the bone , but I had a clean handkerchief to bind the finger , and I hunted the day . Though painful , I got through the day. We got home , and son was presented with a blade protector for his hawk. ..............oldwood

I was just going here to recommend a heavy leather sheath or blade cover if you are going to carry it on your belt. I have a small scar on my side from my hawk when I was shot and killed at Ft. Frederick many moons ago, fell on it.
