    Ok so Dillinger did his tomahawk thread and May be doing another even more epic hawk battle.

    I so want a tomahawk. I am just not sure what a good everyday zombie killin throw it at a stump bash in a liberal pumpkin or socialist watermelon or a commie honeydew kind of tomahawk would be.

    What do you look for in one?

    For the money $30-$40, you can't beat the CS Trench Hawk IMHO. The handle and sheath are very durable polypropylene. Replacement handles if and when you break it from throwing it, are only $6.99. The cutting edge is a decent size and the spike is wicked. I bought one and have been very pleased with it. For the cost of some of the other hawks you could buy 4-5 of these. Just think how bada$$ you would look while you have these dual wield and are Shart Fooing. Just sayin':D

    This guy is not cheap, but his hawks are very high quality. He uses 6150 spring steel. I watched him whack 20 peny nails in two at a gun show, with not any indication of use, and then bought one on the spot. I'm not a "hawk expert" by a long shot, but I know good work when I see it. Not to mention a 25 year warranty on the blade.

    ON the way home with the hawk, I did question the wisdom of my purchase. It was the toolmaker in me that was so impressed with the workmanship. I bought it at the Indy 1500 gun show last Oct, for the gun show price of $120. Since buying the hawk, I've had to pass on several other purchases, but I don't regret it. One of my grandsons will eventually get it.

    I have two hawks that I use regularly, both from Cold Steel, their Vietnam style hawk and their Rifleman's hawk,, both are good quality for the price and a good compromise for the average fellow, I have seen the 2Hawks models and they are outstanding pieces although pricey. I also have a little mouse hawk that is the beater that I fling about at stumps and such,, I like to carry a hawk, hatchet,, or whatever label you put on your chopping tool whenever I venture out in the wilds, that includes heading into a big city.

    That on will do the trick as well. I've always felt guilty. I'm half nole and always wanted to learn how to properly use a tomahawk. Thought I would have a chance in the Army with a full native who practiced everyday. But he went south and I went east. Never saw him again.

    I have the trench hawk and the spike hawk from Cold Steel. The trench hawk throws great and hits like a ton of bricks. Not the sharpest tool i got. I really want to try that estwing one. they got them at home depot for like 40$.
