Tomahawk Ax Description

This tomahawk Ax / Axe is an 18" ax with a 6" head is extra heavy and 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.

Blade Material

The sword is made from 1095 steel. 1095 steel is the highest carbon steel commonly used in swords. It has a carbon level of .95% which is one of the highest carbon levels for any type of steel. The most common high carbon swords are 1045 steel which only have .45% carbon content in the steel. 1095 steel is known for its ability to maintain an edge and is an incredibly hard steel. 1095 steel typically has a hardness of 56-58 HRC. The problem with 1095 steel is that it is lacks flexibility. Flexibility is critical to sword making so the sword doesn't break on high impact collisions. To increase the flexibility of this steel, clay tempering is used to soften the steel. The clay is thickly painted on the blade to insulates the parts of the blade that we want softened so they cool more slowly during the quenching process. In this case, the clay is painted everywhere except the edge. This clay tempering process keeps the strong and sharp edge of the blade while allowing the rest of the blade to be more flexible. This process optimizes the strength of the blade and maximizes its sharpness creating an incredible strong blade and sharp edge.
