The reason they sell replacement handles is most people that buy hawks throw them. Nothing to do with general use durability.

It's not a fair comparison really. Each tool has it's own purpose and abilities. A knife can do things a Hatchet/Tomahawk or Gun cannot and vice versa. A charging bear...gun wins; cutting firewood...hatchet/tomahawk wins; cutting rope or preparing meals...knife wins. Best thing in my mind is to have one of each

In a survival situation if I could only have one tool for the job I'd take a solidly built Tactical Tomahawk. Better striking ability, more force for chopping or breaking, and much better for digging when needed.

Kind of an old thread, but I plan to get one of these soon.

My dad had one of these and a tail goes with it. I looked for years to find one of my own of the same brand.

A couple of years ago I got into the classic outdoor books and found the "Nessamuk" type to put in my saddle bag, along with the knife. the gun rides on my hip of course.

Yes. But what do they know?


And it never ceases to amaze me how narrow minded some people are when it comes to tools.

I choose to learn how to use many tools. And I choose to keep my body strong, my mind sharp and open.

I am very weight concerned when it comes to packing tools. I pack a ax with the hammer head on one side and the ax on the other. It is lighter than any thing you can buy, such as a dry wall hammer or camping ax. The truckers ax looks like a beast to pack. It looks like it could be used to break in to Fort Knox.

I use mine for driving stakes in to the ground. Cutting tent poles, wood for the fire and many other things that has to be chopped.

I know that a bigger or true ax would work better, but I don't want to have to carry one in my pack.

As to using one for self defense. I would be better off throwing rocks at some one. The same thing goes for a knife for me. I'm just not very good with one. I use it to skin stuff and cut stuff. That is one reason I don't buy big knives. For what I use them for a small one will do the trick.

We all use tools in a manner we learned weather it was from use or some one showed us how to do some thing. We have not all had the same teacher or learned the same way. We have all had different lives. That is what makes each of us look at things in a different way. It don't mean that I am wrong or that you are. It means that we just don't want to get our bags mixed up.

Expand your skill set.

Unless you are unteachable or a quitter, you can learn, can you not?

Skills are gained through learning and practice.

When you stop either you grow old and stale.

Bravo 1 I am quite happy with my skill set. I hunt, fish, shoot, take care of a garden and travel to see some of this great country. I am retired ( 62 ) and have no desire to learn to throw a knife or ax.

Because hunting season started to day. Here on my desk sits a Glock 36 ( all ways with me), a Ruger 44 mag and on the side of the desk sits a slug gun. Now if I had to defend my self or wife I think I could do it and I would not have to touch the skinner that is stuck on the pack behind me or one of the three folding knives sitting on the desk.The ax would be hard to get to because it's inside the pack. So it would be of no use at all.

I feel the same way.. I have all manner of knives and have carried them with me all over. In the past 40 years I have used knives to cut cord or prepare meat out in the woods, thats about it. If I am having to use a knife, hammer, axe as a weapon, several significant failures have already occured. I would rather focus my efforts on making sure that I dont have to end up using a knife to defend myself rather than trying to prepare myself for that failure. To that end, I trypically have at least a small 38special revolver in my pocket.

Glad to know you have mastered the needed skill sets.

I'm still working on expanding mine.
