Good tomahawk for the money. I was able to buy this one and the Fasthawk for $35(ish) here on Amazon during a sale and an instant rebate. After testing them on a 3-4 inch diameter Oak Tree limb I am reasonably satisfied. I definitely recommend the Tomahawk over the Fasthawk when chopping small trees and larger limbs. It has much better weight, a larger blade, and can chop more efficiently. The Fasthawk is good, but it is only useful for small limbs and kindling. You can definitely chop very small trees with the Fasthawk, but it will take much more effort. If you are a backpacker, I recommend that you use the Fasthawk, as the Tomahawk is heavier. For kayakers (I use a large 13' kayak) the Tomahawk is just fine.
The biggest weakness of the Tomahawk and the Fasthawk is the handle. It is small in diameter and very slick. It is extremely hard to effectively grip them. I wrapped the handles in Camo form tape and then wrapped them in 550 paracord. After that I used small sections of bicycle tire tube (same as Ranger tape) and improved the grip even more. I added 1-2 inch sections of tube with 1 inch gaps in between each section. It definitely made a big difference.
This is a good light weight solution for your camping needs. If you plan to cut down larger trees and you plan to do it often, keep looking. This is not what you need. It will work great for my requirements during the occasional 3 to 5 day primitive camping trip.
I bought it at $30 and have to say it is worth it, given the price.
--The hard plastic handle is ridged, making it easy to grip, even while wet or grimy.
--The axehead came with a strong edge, and can be easily finished to a very sharp blade that lasts. (I used a Smith's pocket Pal <$10 to fine tune the edge).
--VERY light. the axe can be added to a hiking bag without being a burden.
--The rear spike on the back is pretty wicked, and can bite into very hard wood easily.
--This is a SMALL axe, you won't be chopping down trees with this, and my attempts to break open a broken log with a 24 in. diameter were pretty futile. I was very successful chopping up branches, and chunks of firewood under a foot in diameter, but heavy use on large logs loosened the axehead. The steel of the head goes about a third of the way down the handle, and even though it is reinforced, I managed to loosen the screws. If you don't have the right sized screwdriver bit (T10 bit fit well enough) to tighten everything, you might ruin the tomahawk.
--The sheath does its job, but i wouldn't call it excessively secure when you need it to be or quick-draw when you'd like it to be. It has a double stitched vertical strap that you can run your belt through, but in my experience that made it a bit awkward to re-sheath. It DOES have grommet holes along the top front and top rear edges of the sheath (I did not expect that from the pictures) that allow you to tie it to a backpack or wherever you'd like to secure it. These have been a mixed blessing as they allow flexibility in where you secure it, but depending on the shape of the bag, the tension on the sheath makes it difficult to draw the tomahawk from the sheath. So a little experimenting is in order here.
--I managed to chip the blade this past weekend while throwing it. The shape of the blade makes the top edge of the axe blade more susceptible to damage, and if it lands on a rock you might have chipped your an otherwise. This speaks more to my abuse as an owner than it does the axe's construction however.
So overall, it performed well. There are some issues I have with the sheath, but given the price I really can't complain. If you intend on using it heavily for chopping wood you may want to find another, more solid axe. But if you just want a light axe for light wood cutting or occasional hiking use with the perks of having a throwing tomahawk, you'd be very hard pressed to find a better buy than this. I would highly recommend finding T10 bits for your screwdriver as the head will likely start to loosen after some time. I will likely be wrapping the handle in paracord to improve comfort as well.

Seems fairly well balanced and I was able to stick it into a dead tree about 80% of the time my first time...Read more
