Overall I am pleased with the feel and performance from my first couple of uses. The head strikes firmly and I have not experienced any deflection on angles. The handle however is a disappointment. Although the size and length are good the varnish was a poor decision. It's slick and almost immediately starts to cause friction. Do yourself a favor and rasp it off to the natural wood, a little linseed oils and rub it with a bone or smooth rod.
Nice axe with a good feel and heft. The only disappoint was upon receiving mine was seeing that it is not American made but made in Taiwan.
I must say the fit and finish on this product is top notch I had been debating whether to go cold steel and pay less (but have to work on the fit and finish) or pay a little more for a quality company to do it. I believe I made the right decision. I have only been down into the trees for some minor bushcrafting but was impressed so far.
This is a great tomahawk, AND good hatchet.
Traditional tomahawks were designed as offensive weapons, and are typically lighter than hatchets. But this new and innovative design is a solid, high-quality tool. It is more robust and slightly heavier, and seems to be a cross between a hatchet and a tomahawk.
My daughters throw tomahawks, and I use a tomahawk to clear trails, cut small limbs, and keep our family safe from bears. Traditional tomahawks are fine for all of these things, but are no good when you need heft and stability.
But this tomahawk is more stable. I will use it as a tomahawk, and also for things I used to do with a hatchet, like driving wedges to split logs, hammering stakes, and splitting kindling wood. It's great for things that traditional tomahawks perform poorly.
The best ever made product plus made in USA
I haven't had a chance to really put it to the test, but this hawk is solidly built has a great edge. As the other reviewer mentioned, it would be nice if the sheath were included, or at least suggested when ordering. I can't wait to get out in the woods with this guy.
It works great and hold a good edge
Nice tomahawk. Already put it to work. Swing weight and balance were great, and hawk is sharp. Hammer head is a good size. I, too, would have been happier with a sheath, but that's life. (I had purchased two hawks, one for me and one for my son.)CRKT products are durable, and they don't disappoint.
THIS IS A GREAT HAWK. IT THROWS NICE AND STICKS GREAT. IT IS SUPER SHARP AND CUTS LIMBS CLEAN AND IS GOOD FOR SPLITTING WOOD. THE ONLY THING MISSING WHEN IT ARRIVED WAS A SHEATH. YOU HAVE TO PURCHASE IT SEPERATELY. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO KNOW THIS AHEAD OF TIME, AND EVEN NICER TO HAVE INCLUDED A SHEATH FOR THE PRICE. IN ALL I WOULD HIGHLY SUGGEST PURCHASING THIS TOMAHAWK. I HAVE SEVERAL CRKT KNIVES AND THE TOMAHAWK STANDS UP TO THEIR GREAT QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE. SCOTT.
