    Really sweet combat Tomahawk

    There is an ad for this gggaz.com tactical gear supplier in the current "premier" issue of "Tactical Weapons," and so I went to their website and found this combat "Battle hawk"

    Check it out--it's really cool!

    I'd have to have a windfall of money to splurge on something like that, as I'll surely almost never use it, but it's tucked into the back of my mind...

    I have been looking for a new edged device to assist in opening boxes. I would guess that this would do the job nicely.

    never thought of a tomahawk before, but that thing looks sweet.
    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    Axes were very popular weapons in the middle ages because, the could perice through armor, chop fire wood and every peasant had one and knew how to use it.

    I'll stick with my old camping hand axe though

    Yeah, I have a Gerber Camp Axe and I like it a lot -- I even sharpened it as I would a knife -- and it cost around $30-something. This Battle Hawk is pretty sweet, though. I don't even have any knives that cost that much, however, and although I'd like to have one, I don't think I'll be spending $260 on the Battle Hawk. I thought some folks here might be interested, though.

    I got my hands on that at this past SHOT Show, and I can say it's not a flimsy piece of hardware.

    I know a couple a' SOG-type guys who've become serious fans of (as they put it) the "Social Tomahawk". It's replaced their BIG fixed blade fighting knives with it's added capability to breach, impact, hook & employ baton techniques. But they're quick to add that they never throw them. As a potential weapon-of-last-resort, they can't imagine the idea of throwing it away.

    I have a Ranger Knives Renigade tomahawk. IVE used it for everything from pruning limbs off trees to breaching walls in a soon to de demolished house to prying padlocks off doors and helping to dress a large whitetail buck.

    I would suggest anyone interested in using a hawk in a social situation get the DVD by James Keating and the Paladin Press Tomahawk book by Dwight Maclemore. Both will teach you how to be deadly with one.

    I have one of the copies of an 18th century hammer poll hawk. Light enough to swing easily, heavy enough to have some punch. The hammer will smash a hole in a person easily on the back swing. No wonder the Native Americans favored the tomahawk as their favorite weapon. An indian coming at you screaming with an upraised tomahawk to cleave open your skull would inject terrible fear into the frontiersmen and their families. 'Hawks are fearsome weapons even today.

    Betty, That would compliment your mace nicely.

    check out S.O.G axes. They're sturdy and surprisingly cheap.

    One of our platoon commanders had one on his gear while we were over in Fallujah last year. He was a little Hispanic Captain who carried more gear on his flak than the largest Marines in his platoon. I don't think he ever got to use it, not much firewood to chop in Iraq...
