Handcrafted a Tomahawk!

I had some flat steel spring back a few months ago, and a piece of wood so I thought why not make a lighter axe for my back pack instead of ordinary cheap Chinese ones?

So I started hand cutting and cold hammering and sanding and sanding and even more sanding/polishing and at last A Tomahawk was born. It can carve firewood, hammer nails and maybe some attacker’s heads Indian’s style 🙂


The thick blade is sharp enough to be used also as a knife to prepare food. I also sanded/shaped a piece of wood branch I kept for this purpose for such a long time. Then I added some paracord and it looks beautiful, smooth and light, so I put away the bigger axe.
