There are wood tool axes, and there are war axes.
Tomahawk is definitely "in the middle" I'd think the "in the middle" axe I'd want/like does not exist: Heavy enough for woodwork, balanced enough for war...
It's a light single hand war axe that CAN be used for other duties, IMO.
But let's definitely don't be confused - after a lot of Okinawin Kobudo, I would definitely put a hurt on you with one...or a lot of goofy things ranging from a big stick to my belt.
For the skilled person, with the right axe, I'd say it would be a great choice. Don't know that many of the "right" tomahawks exist...
