The Classic Tomahawk, similar to the previous month’s Nordic Tomahawk, also has a convex edge for deep cuts. Although it should be noted that thanks to its hardened head, it is an axe that could also be used as a hammer.
This Tomahawk is originally from America and its name comes from the American Indians, specifically from the word tomahaac of the Powhatan language.
Throughout history, it was a tool used by both Native Americans and European settlers, and among its uses, in addition to being used as a throwing weapon, it was also part of melee battles.
PROS: Thanks to its lightness, compared to other axes, it is much easier to rotate it. On the other hand, its smaller and thinner edge makes penetration into wood easy. Overall, it is a much more manageable axe.
CONS: The lightness of this axe also has its downside, since it is more complicated to control its trajectory, you have to hold the handle very tightly because when throwing it, it tends to go upwards.

Its durability and toughness is perfect for any heavy-handed enthusiast. The percentage of carbon composition ranges from 0.50% to 0.56%, and along with manganese as the only other component, gives it great resistance to shock and wear.
This composition makes it the ideal choice for uses requiring impact resistance.
American Hickory is a hardwood tree native to the eastern states of the U.S. and considered one of the most important trees in the eastern forests for its combination of strength, toughness, hardness and stiffness.
The wood of this tree possesses a unique composition of strength, hardness, density and toughness that cannot be found in any other species. Thanks to these qualities, it is used for applications that require great strength and, above all, high impact resistance.
Traditionally, this wood was used for objects such as tool handles, stair treads and even wagon wheels.
With the passage of time it has become a very versatile material for its use and manufacture, as it can be found in field hockey sticks, fishing rods, drumsticks, furniture, and, of course, in pickaxes and axes.
