I just "bit" on a Condor Axe & Tools Tomahawk.

Postby Captain O » Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:15 am

Amazon had it on sale for $59.90 and I have been considering buying a 'hawk as a "supplement" for my Cold Steel Smatchet. I couldn't afford a Boker Smatchet Much as I wanted one, I couldn't pony up the $400.00 for the beautiful piece of steel.

The Condor Axe & Tools Tomahawk is a beautiful piece of 1075 Carbon steel with a nice "beard' coupled with a great piercing second bit. The handle is wrapped in paracord and the hawk seems to be a modern version of the Vietnam Tomahawk without the oak handle. As an anti-personnel 'hawk, this should be effective. I expect a long life of use from this "well-tempered beast". (I did my homework before jumping on this one).

If you want a tomahawk that will be useful for a variety of purposes, this one is worth a look.

Your post made me take a look at the Cold Steel Smatchet. Since my collecting is strictly military I don't keep up much with the civilian stuff. It looks like they got it right. I have an original smatchet and frankly the grip is about a comfortable as grabbing a 2X4. To me the US M1910 or M1917CT bolos are a better tool for the purpose even though the blade is smaller. It looks like Cold Steel married the smatchet blade to the M1910 grip. Should be just the ticket.

If you buy an Atlantic Cutlery Replica Smatchet you can round off the corners of the handle scales, and obtain a better grip. A good Tomahawk will make a great offensive/defensive piece of steel. (The Condor Axe & Tools CTK4057C14.4 is "all business" and a good bet for the money). ::tu::
