Special Forces have a use for them. As for me I think it would make a great SHTF tool/last ditch no more ammo weapon...but thats just me.

Rangers and SF use them as sharp hammers, to poke holes (top pic) in fuel drums for more spectacular fireworks, and as a more useful fighting implement than the beloved E-Tool. If this is the guy in GA, he is looking into a modified hydraulic press (like a vertical log splitter with a short stroke) to speed up production. He is backlogged like hell due to orders from the military. If this is the same guy. Don Out

I used to be a buckskinner....competed in knife and 'hawk throwing. I'm here to tell you, once you stick that sucker the first time, it's such a rush you'll keep throwing until you can't hold your arm up.

What are they good for, you ask? Rent the Patriot. Some good tomahawk action there.

Thanks!!!!! I've been looking for a source for GOOD Vietnam tomahawks ever since Cold Steel quit selling theirs. Got one of CS's Rifleman's Hawks, but the head is just too darn heavy.

I wonder if they could make a tomahawk with a fiberglass handle. That would be lightweight and nearly indestructible.
