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) ... it's held up perfectly with regular dish soap and water cleanings and after what I consider heavy cutlery use still does not need to be sharpened yet
I've continued to use my outside hawk to break up ice around my mailbox and house that is several inches deep in weather down to -30f ... both ends of the hawk excel at this
I haven't even been keeping this one inside, I just spike it into a large snowbank and leave it there exposed until I need it again - I don't know how to break this thing, but I'm not giving up
one time I had to stop to pee in the woods while holding this hawk - it felt like a piss that would change the fate of the world
if you know someone who's an outdoor type, this has to be one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give them, and one they will use/remember for decades - especially because hatchets of this quality are so rarely seen in actual stores
The weapon doesn't come very sharp, but that's easily remedied with a sharpener. The point on the opposite end is wicked, however, so just be careful when you're swinging it around. The construction is sound with the axe head being securely fastened into the handle. I know some people like the more traditional feel of wooden handles, but I've put the 'hawk through some rigorous use, and I've discovered that I prefer something that isn't going to break. (I have a pair of polypropylene escrima sticks as well.) The sheath is very sturdy nylon with belt loops for carrying.
My one dislike about this tomahawk was that the paracord handle wrap came completely loose when I tested the 'hawk's durability by chopping a 4" log. While this may not seem like that great of an issue, the paracord can act like a shock absorber, protecting your hand. My first two right fingers and thumb were numb for a couple days afterward. As I will be using this only for weapon training from now on, I'll probably just wrap the handle in sport tape. If you do wish to use it for outdoor purposes, you can easily replace the paracord by wrapping it yourself. There are online video instructions on how to do this. Otherwise, wear gloves.
All in all, I really like the tomahawk. I had never thrown one before, and after this came I was able to consistently hit a target after maybe 10 minutes of practice. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in self-defense. Just remember that this is NOT a toy, so handle with care.
This compass needle was spinning like my girlfriend off of her medication.
The Hawk was fine out of the box but needs some TLC to bring the edge out sharp and angled properly.
The sheath busted after tugging on the back strap to tie to my ALICE pack. Cheap crapola stitching. I have a plan for this. Dump the sheath and cover Hawk with oil cloth and tie with 550 para-chord and tie off to ALICE in rear handle down so my boys don't keep ringing like an alarm clock.
