Cold Steel War Hawk Tactical Tomahawk Camp Hatchet
Our War Hawk combines the tactical styling and material used in our popular Trench Hawk with historically inspired design elements from fighting hand-axes of old.With its wide “bearded” axe head and curved reinforced reverse Tanto style spike it is a thoroughly modern tactical tomahawk and breaching tool! Each War Hawk is supplied with a patented articulated Secure-Ex sheath.
Drop forged from 5150 carbon steel and differentially hardened, the head of the War Hawk will withstand tremendous blows and the awful stress of continued throwing.
The handle of the War Hawk is also highly resistant to shock and impact and will withstand abuse that would easily break even a tough hickory handle. And, as an added benefit, is easily and cheaply replaced when finally worn out or broken from repeated throwing (NOTE: any handle can, and will, break eventually).
Finally, to help protect its owner from its cutting edge and dangerously sharp spike, it comes with a patented Secure- Ex™ sheath that features a cleverly articulated design.

Particularly suited to blades that require extreme impact resistance it is often seen in high durability large fixed blades and swords.
