Colin Despins a designer of tactical resources here in the U.S. brings us to this design of a tactical tomahawk. The "Tomahook" design is inspired by the Celts Vikings and Native Americans offering a high degree of functionality and versatility. Highly effective as a hatchet with its wide sharp edge it can also be used as a lever as the top of the ax head is sharpened like a chisel. The Tomahook is also well suited not only as a shovel but even as a skinning knife with its razor sharp edge. In addition the handle can be engaged securely behind the cutting edge making finer cutting tasks possible and the recess doubles as a hook for various applications. The back of the ax head has a rounded point of impact which is ideal as a glassbreaker or pounding tool. The recessed G-10 scales not only provide a comfortable and secure grip almost every point of the tang is usable as a tool. There is even a grip on the ax head to allow safe use as an impact tool. Crafted of SK5 carbon steel with corrosion-resistant coating this is truly a high class tactical tool with maximum versatility. The SK5 carbon steel even though it's not corrosion resistant is the ideal material for this tactical tomahawk but due to the nature of this steel it may show some light corrosion on the uncoated edge occasionally which can be removed by a short resharpening. Includes a specially designed Kydex sheath.
