Tomahawk Ax-Handmade High Carbon Damascus Steel Ax / Axe
Throwing Ax Description
This tomahawk Ax / Axe is an 18" ax with a 4" head designed for throwing. It is made from pattern welded Damascus steel and designed for beauty and function. The throwing ax was a weapon used in the middle ages and is thrown overhead to create end over end rotation as it travels through the air. Throwing axes are currently used in sporting competitions where athletes throw the axes at targets. They are also throw at lumberjack competitions. Ax throwers intend to rotate the ax once through flight so the head connects with the target after a single rotation.
The tomahawk/ throwing ax is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel. Pattern welded Damascus steel scimitar is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel. There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions. This makes the perfect steel for swords. The handle is bone and horn with Damascus steel bolsters. It comes with a leather sheath.

Much better than expected, dont think I will use it for a throwing hawk, handle is not designed for that
I bought one for my brother as a best mans gift when I got married this year and had to get one for myself as well! Excellent craftsmanship and was blown away at how awesome it is! Definitely recommend for anyone debating on buying one!
I love it. The folded steel is just beautifull, the wood and leather have taken on a nice petina.
As generic as the title reads, it's true. I spoke with Brian about this tomahawk before it was sent. These are hand made items so when purchasing on line there is an item for a tip, I was surprised. I left one regardless and waited. I wish I would have left a larger tip... While I am going going be throwing this tomahawk I'm not going to abuse it in the woods or on trips. I'm prior service Army looking for items for my kids and this is one they will fight over..If it's not something used while serving i want it to be something that meant something to me now..its not going to look this pretty when they get it, it will look like a used tomahawk, as it should.. but it will be like a 62 vette in the garage... For whatever your reasons, if your reading reviews you want it.. GET IT.
Awesome quality axe, prompt delivery, will recommend them to everyone!
