Tops Hammer Hawk

Published By

This tomahawk would like to get to work. It’s not a light weight, space-saving all-in-one. It’s a ruggedly built, properly weighted, full-tang hatchet that looks about as good as it performs. At 14 ½ inches with a 4 ½ inch blade, this will handle jobs that smaller axes just can’t.

The head is a ⅜ inch thick piece of hardened 1075 carbon steel with an embossed arrow detail on either side and a functional hammer at the back. The handle is green canvas Micarta — a composite of thermoset and canvas — that extends nearly to the head so you can grip it wherever the job demands.

They made the blade cover and belt frog separate to allow for an easy draw and two snaps keep the Hammer Hawk from swinging wildly as you walk. There’s also an additional pocket for a backup blade. Call it a survival tool or a camping tool, but at 2 ¼ pounds just don’t call it a lightweight. – $280
