In a limited search I couldn't find anything on them, if its been covered I apologize. Anyone have one? Are they as nice as they look to be? Thanks.

No personal experience myself but they have a great reputation. The only complaint I've ever heard of is the weight but that's the price you pay for the full tang. They use an appropriate steel too, not some junk stainless that would look pretty but likely fail on you.

Love mine. They're expensive but to me they are works of art. And yes, it gets used. But I also use my Randalls.

You get a discount if you're a vet too. But you'll still wait. Mine took about 6 months.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm waiting on a 762 LaRue and one of these is next on my list.

I have owned a talon and Jenny wren. Both were well made and tough. That being said I just really never had a use for them, anything I could use them for could be done just as well with a tool that is lighter and cheaper. If was in a warzone or something like that

It'll probably end up in a drawer next to my Browning Tomahawk. When it comes to restraint on cool guns and stuff like Gump says "I'm not a smart man".

If I ever had the burning desire to cut the door off an APC, I would reach for an RMJ tomahawk. I would choose others for use in the woods or at camp, but if you need to extricate something from a metal container, or affect interpersonal dynamics, they're fantastic tools.
