Nordic Tomahawk

The ultimate complete guide

NORDIC TOMAHAWK

Our Nordic Tomahawk has a convex edge to facilitate deep, cutting cuts and ends in two sharp points.

Traditionally, the lower point was used to capture an opponent’s shield, leg, arm, shoulder or neck, momentarily immobilizing them or bringing them in close, making them easier to dispatch.

PROS: Easy to handle and throw, with a high probability of nailing down thanks to its wide blade. It is ideal for trick shots.

CONS: Difficult to aim due to its long handle, as it involves holding it with one hand and any movement of the arm affects the aim.

ABOUT 1055 CARBON:

Its durability and toughness is perfect for any heavy-handed enthusiast.聽The percentage of carbon composition ranges from 0.50% to 0.56%, and together with manganese as the only other component, it provides great resistance to shock and wear.

This composition makes it the ideal choice for those applications requiring impact resistance.

ABOUT AMERICAN HICKORY WOOD:

American Hickory is a hardwood tree native to the eastern states of the USA 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 requiring great strength and, above all, high resistance to impact.

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.
