    Tomahawk!

    I've got the hankerin' for getting my black belt ninja tomahawk throwing badge. I'm looking for input on an inexpensive basic tomahawk for throwing at a target in the ol' backyard. I want to start with a wood handled style I think, then may progress to some of the fancy tacti-cool styles. I envision it as being something I can throw and fight with if the need ever comes.

    Everybody ought to have at least one. I have several. Cold Steel makes some good ones.

    I watched a fellow throwing once. SOG I think. Wicked looking thing.

    Cold steel offers some impressive tomahawks, now which one? Do I want a spike or a hammer? I've always been fascinated by the vikings but the axe gang style looks fun too. Decisions, decisions...

    Vikings?

    Heres one that I've been told looks like it has Nordic roots.

    In this picture of it, I had just got done busting the pelvis of a deer with it, thus the blood and hair. It throws very well and is a great tool.

    I made it. Its got a Bois de arc handle on it.

    Cold steel for a good quality inexpensive hawk that is fun to throw and mod. I have the trailhawk and want to get a pipehawk next.

    Anyone know anything about the SOG F-12N Double headed tomahawk, or the Cold Steel Trench Hawk?

    I don't own one, but I'd like to eventually. I know a couple guys that carried them overseas and spoke very highly of them. I wouldn't have the same uses, but still I would like one for the hell of it. I've only ever looked at the very expensive one, so hopefully I'll get some ideas from this thread.

    The Cold Steel TRENCH HAWK would be a good one. Not expensive. They are all over Ebay.

    For throwing...either side will stick. You cannot fail.

    +1 for Cold Steel. Reasonably priced and tough (not to mention sharp). I would second the Trench Hawk if you want something modern looking, otherwise the Norse Hawk is another good choice for combat or throwing. A hammer poll will add significant weight to the Hawk so I wouldn't bother, unless you want the added utility of being able to drives nails or stakes.

    Cold Steel Trail Hawk for me here. I have 2. One for general throwing in the yard and the other I keep strapped to my pack in the trunk.
    edit: Mine seems to have taken the abuse of throwing and general use(i actually use the hammer on the thing). It was right about $22 IIRC each when I got mine.

    I can see a Tomahawk working great against an attacker armed with a knife. But it will not fit in my pocket.
