It took Peter LaGana a lifetime of armed combat and months of design and testing to perfect the Vietnam Tomahawk. Now, there's an exact replica of this historic weapon. Like the original Vietnam Tomahawk, our copy is light enough to be carried all day without causing undue fatigue. In combat, this lightness translates into speed; allowing quick changes in direction, even in mid-stroke! The blade of the "hawk" offers a wide, upswept primary edge for tremendous cutting, slashing and chopping potential. The secondary edge on the lower side of the head is specially curved and partially sharpened for both a cutting and hooking attack. When combined with the "V" shaped spike on the back of the hawk head, it is wickedly efficient. It comes complete with a leather sheath in the original oxblood color.

For what it is, it does well. I own two of these models. The first one came decently sharp, but the glue on top of the handle that holds the head on was chipped and some substance like hot glue was used to replace the crack. After ten to fifteen throws, It was sliding all over. I still use it, because it is secured pretty well, but I don't throw it anymore.
My second one, the main blade came duller than dull. The spike however, was extremely sharp. A few minutes with a file and then with a sharpening stone, it had a really good edge. The handle right under the head is carved differently than my first one, swelling right under the head. This gives me hope that it will not slide. It hasn't yet anyway.
These are good practicing and training 'hawks, as well as good for light to medium use but if you are going to need it to save your life in a survival situation as a tool or as a weapon, drop a few extra dollars on something better made. c s
After some work putting a nice sharp convex edge, it is much more serviceable. My sheath is thick and serviceable but does not appear to be leather. Keep in mind mine is a few years old. Without more actual chopping I can't comment on durability. What I can say is there are better choices for both woodsmanship and combat, but it's serviceable after some sharpening and neat to have from an historical perspective.
Update: my son took it out to try throwing it (without my permission) and the handle snapped off right below and into the eye on a bad throw just after a few tosses. Looking at it, I can say that, due to the handle design (unlike a regular 'hawk that is thick at this point) of it being the thinnest at this point (and I mean toy-like), I recommend you avoid throwing this at all costs. I would never trust this tool in the woods again, it's just that thin. Tempted to downgrade it to a two, not for having broken due to throwing, but for how dainty the haft is.
From reading other reviews it appears there may be made in china knock offs of the made in Taiwan CS hawk. The Cold Steel hawk is made in Taiwan.
