Those Vaughn Rigging axes are the way to go CA. I carry one in my backpack when on hikes lately on the PCT. Very versitle tool. Not to long for the backpack but a bit heavy when counting ounces. When I was a carpenter as a stacker and there was skip sheet it was the only hammer/axe tool to have.

Not to worry, mine is well used and ugly as hell now and the waffle hammer head is half worn flat as well.

Well, I used the tomahawk today. I chopped up 2 wheelbarrows full of kindling, sizes from real little, up to about 2" in diameter. The hawk cut real well, once I got used to it. The length, and sharpness encouraged me to take it slow at first. Once I got the hang of it, I was well pleased. It cut very well. The 2" branches only took a couple of blows, and knots presented no problems at all. Choking up on the handle, I could shave curls off for kindling. I whacked around for about an hour with it, and the best part..... I couldn't tell from looking, that I had used the tomahawk. The bluing wasn't affected at all. Gotta like that.......

Nice. Does the guy you bought it from have a website or something like that?

Perhaps he would be interested in some customer designed business.

The vikings had some pretty tight hatchets. The ax handle itself was a norse weapon. You should probably get some use from their designs.
