    Like this, or something similar?

    Tomahawk - Steel Tomahawk - Battle Hawk Tactical Combat Axe - Military Battle Axe

    I understand the U.S. Military is starting to carry a battle ax in Iraq & Afghanistan . I think partly because of the psychological effect of a crazed American soldier charging Al Queda <sp> with one of these instead of a knife. it sure would scare the poop out-a-me

    I think it would make a great secondary, hand to hand combat weapon?

    Now that is a good idea to have one of those in your vehicle. A multi - use tool and weapon for emergencies.

    I could see where a tomahawk in the hands of a green beret would be horrifying to an Al Queda terrorist surprised in his spider hole.
    God bless our troops!

    The only experience I have is my ex. Got rid of her. I like the look of the Battle Hawk. Looks easy to keep in a vehicle and looks like it could do some damage.

    Cold Steel

    If you don't have a Cold Steel hawk or a Spetsnaz shovel in your car, you're doing something wrong.

    The axe that I carry in my vehicle is a little bit different and designed for use on the fire ground. With it's weight forward balance design it feels great in your hand.

    We are the official trainers for RMJ Tacitical which is the premier maker of tactical tomahawks. Next week we will be at the TX SWAT round up. Many agencies use hawks for breaching and popping tires on vehicle assaults. Hawks are excellent weapons and tools.

    The design and utility use are improved.

    Fusion Tactical Tomahawk at The SOG Store

    I found this, and it's reasonably priced

    I saw one of those during my time in Iraq, someone in my unit had one. It got carried once, after which it was decided it was too heavy to be of pratical use for patroling. It was well made, but not really practical in Iraq.

    i own 2 Cold Steel 'hawks; i keep the Norse Hawk in my bedroom, and the Frontier Hawk in my van. the former is profiled to be a fighter, the latter is great for just about anything.

    My shovel has a threaded collar at the throat. When loosened, the business end can be set to one of three useful positions:
    1. Normal shovel
    2. Pick/Hoe
    3. Folded all the way back for storage

    E tool

    I like the E-tool style shovels, too. I got a Glock shovel as a freebee, but I wouldn't pay $50 for one.
    GLOCK-107 - GLOCK Entrenching Tool with 6 5/8" Root Saw Blade Black Polymer Blade Locks in Three Positions

    I have an old German army surplus one I got at an army-navy store for less than $10 with a pick and shovel. It would be great for SD use and it was a bargain.
