    No, it has nothing to do with that show. I've been interested in one for a while and watching movies like The Patriot and TV shows like Top Shot kinda pushed me over the top, plus it's cheaper than another gun. Looks like a good close quarters weapon and I think I could learn to throw it which would be a nice backyard activity.

    Although I've heard rumors of someone who has probably seen that show or has it on DVR, maybe in the astral plane or an alternate universe.

    i have the 'standard' SOG and the SOG short hawk. at 67 years of age, and a stroke survivor, i really hope to avoid situations where they are my primary means of SD. i just always thought that fighting hawks were cool, and better than a knife for SD.

    p.s: i also have a (cheap) samurai-type sword, which i also think is cool.

    I have been looking at the SOG Fast Hawk, do you like it? Have you done any throwing with it?

    Tomahawk's are awesome, I would like to get one of the SOG ones, when I get back stateside. Great tools, great weapons, and fun to throw (if you can get it to stick).

    I like Peter LaGana’s original Vietnam Tomahawk design.

    I have a SOG and several Cold Steels. My favorite is the Norse Hawk, and an Axe Gang is my next purchase. For a First I think the Norse or a Frontier hawk from CS.

    If I was gonna get a Tomahawk it would be pricey even if I could get approval from the ATF I haven't seen any cruise missiles on gunbroker

    There're quite a number of good Tomahawks out there, including some custom ones that aren't too expensive. Fort Turner's comes to mind (Theirs range between $50-120). For inexpensive, it's hard to beat Cold Steel or SOG. Cold Steel uses 1055 carbon steel & SOG uses 420 stainless steel, so it depends on ones needs. Personally, I have a SOG tactical Hawk that was coated (A dark black/grey digicam). At a total of $45, it wasn't a bad purchase (The shipping alone cost $15, so $30 is not too much to spend, I think).

    The SOG Fast Hawk is pretty nice in that it's a little smaller & probably makes for a good throwing Hawk.

    Good luck with your choice.

    I bought a SOG Fusion battle axe and have been happy with it.
