ask yourself something...
Have you EVER encountered a situation where, "Man! I could really use a tomahawk right about now. 'Twould get me out of this right jam I've affixed myself in." didn't immediately cross your mind? THOUGHT NOT. Tomahawks are dang useful, guy, and don't try to pretend otherwise. so versatile, small enough to fit in your belt loop without being TOO auspicious.The only place I recommend not going with this little guy at your hip is to the hospital. They get real uneasy around sharp objects, for some reason.

I am a big fan of tomahawks and this is a very nice one probably one of the best ones I own. I don't throw it based on the fact that its 350 buck but I have a feeling that it would fly well. I have used it to limb small trees to cut rope and I use it A LOT to break through ice. Holds an edge very well and feels very comfortable in the hand. Anyone looking for a quality tomahawk look no further.
