Product Description

This M48 Ranger Hawk is the ultimate tactical tool. It is lightweight to be carried all day without added muscle fatigue and the blade of the M48 Ranger Hawk offers a wide, upswept axe blade for mammoth chopping, slashing and cutting potential. The axe head is constructed of precision cast 2Cr13 stainless steel. When combined with the backside of the head, the spike and axe head make for an efficient personal defense and breaching tool as well as a great camping tool with an extremely fast chopping edge. The blade is securely attached to the sturdy nylon reinforced handle with 30-Percent fiberglass, with three separate bolts and black nylon cord wrapping. It comes complete with a nylon snap button sheath that also houses the included directional compass.

This is a superior Hawk! It seems that United Cutlery actually listened to the reviews and has tried to improve their product. It is about the same price as the traditional M48, but has been upgraded with 7cr17 stainless steel instead of the original aus-6. 7cr17 is comparable to 440c with Gerber being the main user of this metal, while aus-6 is comparable to 440a which is a slightly lesser grade. They also have included 550 paracord around the handle, which is one of the most frequently recommended things done upon recieving the older M48. I took it a bit further and unwound a length of the paracord to make a wrist strap. I got rid of the D-ring and replaced the compass with my old military all metal one. The supplied compass suprised me in the fact that it is a very close copy to my military compass. The bad part of it was that they had decided to make it all out of plastic. It works very well, but it doesn't seem to be built for really rugged use. The hawk has a nice two-tone finish, olive drab handle mixed with the black head. Same 30% fiberglass reinforced handle and looks great. So, to sum it up, same M48 style hawk but with improved metal, a compass and a cool color scheme. Paracord for improved grip is awesome. Sheath has snaps on the bottom so you just pull the hawk straight down to release it. Sheath also has velcro straps on the back, but also has regular belt-like loops for a more secured hold. To me, this was definately an upgrade for the traditional M48 Hawk, and for almost the same price, you can't beat it. Shipping from Jalic was fast and accurate.

I was looking for a small survival pack axe and this is what i came up with. It may not be its intended purpose but it works great. It has a curved edge and that makes it a good chopper, an unwanted tree in my backyard shows the evidence. Its not full tang, but I dont think that compromises its ruggedness. If your looking for a tacticool survival throwing hawk at a good price than look no further.

I have two of these - one is in my kitchen as part of my cutlery and is treated like a long butcher knife or cleaver - this hawk cleaves through chicken/beef/pork bone like it's not there, and sometimes it's not

so far it's holding up excellent as cutlery ... I hand wash/dry it after every use and I've been known to finger a little vegetable oil on it occasionally to prevent rust (do these rust?)

the other one is an identical hawk that I have purposely abused since it was first taken out of the package ... I've even loaned this out to friends who keep things too long and treat other people's stuff like shet ... I've chopped saplings and de-branched chainsawed trees with it and have torn down the plywood and sheetrock walls/ceiling in a 20x25 garage using only this one axe and a stepladder ... shingles, nails, 2x4's, electrical wiring, plumbing and rotted rafters all fell before it's blade and spike

I once used it to chop through a massive block of minnesota snowplow ice around my mailbox to get it open - by the time I got the mailbox open I was hearing people chant my name in my head with every blow

they were both sharp enough to clean-shave a cat when they were new - the cutlery one is still tomato-slicing sharp (my teenage daughter and I have both been wounded by it) and I've sharpened the abused outside hawk a few times with a file but I really want to bring it in to be professionally sharpened soon - I'll update this after I hear from the knife shop how much damage the blades have taken (I'm expecting really bad news)

march 26 2013 update

my inside cutlery hawk continues it's pampered existence, while silently terrifying my daughters boyfriend every time he walks by it (he has no idea what we use it for) ...

I attached the M48 Hawk to the back side of my "Zombie Survival Pack" using the molle attachments on the back of the sheath and also the beaner on the handle. The beaner is nice to hold the handle close to the bottom of the pack without it flopping around. I rewrapped the whole of the handle with 550 cord which gives the tomahawk a very nice grip. I haven't thrown it yet, but I've beat this thing pretty good and it's clearly meant to be abused. The compass is an inexpensive plastic replica of my brass lensatic compass. It is "cub scout" grade, so I gave it to my 9-year-old son to use and replaced it with my own. The sheath is functional: it holds the tomahawk and covers the blade, nothing else... most definitely not mil-spec. Overall, for the price the M48 Hawk is a very fun and useful thing to have.

There has been much speculation of the M48 Hawk's effectiveness in a zombie attack. In the event of a real zombie attack, contamination from flying zombie blood, flesh and entrails would render this weapon ineffective. Even if you wore a HAZMAT suit while chopping zombie heads off, the risk of puncturing your protective suit with the sharp, pointed edges of this weapon would be great. I suppose if you used the tomahawk as a one-time throwing weapon some zombie damage might occur, however, your bad-to-the-bone Hawk would then be in the hands of the undead enemy... in which case your own M48 Hawk would be used to chop your brains out for easy consumption by the zombie hoards. Embarrassing indeed. If your tomahawk was used in a kamikaze-style attack sacrificing yourself for the good of humanity, you might get one or two zombies...
