Use some 'Common Sense'. I know this flower doesn't grow in everyone's garden, but just tryit out for once. These 'Hawks' are for Close Quarters Fighting...not for throwing 15'-20'. Take into account, that if I threw you that far 10-12 times with considerable force, with you not being designed for that...You'd break too. I was in the Marine Corps, distances of 50yds or more, use your rifle, 50yds or less, use your sidearm, arms length...use anything you have on you, being preferably my trusty Kabar, but given the chance to infliict considerable mass slashing flesh rendering tomahawk in the left and Kabar in the right giving equal chances for making a scoring hit. Main Point Being...Throwing is fun, but don't abuse what may just save your ass some day.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

This is a universal tool. A good all around camp tool; good for prepping wood for campfires, digging a stuck tent stake out, even prying open a stuck container. Also a good weapon with a balanced chopping action and good for throwing. I have had handles on axes and hammers break before, but you can always replace this one with a fiberglass handle if you want....Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

bought this figuring since it wasnt meant for zombie survival it might be decent. Its purpose for myself was to be used for cutting small limbs to clear trail and to provide timber for a small 1 man cooking fire. I was out on 1 week hunting trip in the boonies alone caught in a blizzard so heavy trees were falling blocking every route along with weighing pine limbs down a good 10'. i cut maybe 10 limb bases aprroximately 4" or less in diameter or less and the epoxy bond broke. thankfully i had a folding shovel and a large bowie knife or i may have been screwed. buy it to toy with, not to rely on, the price should of told me that but hey.Would you recommend this to a friend?

A lot of people posting on here do not seem to understand the design of this Hawk. Mr. LaGana designed this Hawk as a combat weapon, not a thrower. It may look cool in the movies but you almost NEVER throw away your last ditch hand weapon, knife or Hawk, when fighting for your life. The shorter handle works better for close in fighting. It is not a camp ax per se, although it could be used for very light camp use. It is for fighting and it should be reviewed and interpreted that way. I would like to see it have a better handle material choice and method of blade retention. I will be getting one of these and that will be my modification and sharpening the underbelly for hooking.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I bought this as a thrower and it broke after about ten throws. I would not recommend this product. I do recommend BudK because they are taking very good care of me since I am unhappy with this product.

ok, first off the package came way sooner than expected, second the back spike on the back rocks! its also balanced for throwing(if you are into that like i am) and even if you didn't throw it it would be great for defense as well as a hatchet ( though not on large logs, all in all great tool

I've never gone wrong when it comes to united cutlery. So this is my first tomahawk and I gotta say is is very impressive in weight and strength. But to tell you the truth I think I would rather use it as a self defense more then a thrower. All in all it is a very sturdy tomahawk and for the price you can't go wrong.

I have several, my favorite is from Cold Steel but when I saw this one offered for under $20.00, I decided to get it, it is well made, was somewhat sharp, handle could be a couple of inches longer, sheath is pretty decent given the price. Not sure as to strength of handle, but I bought it for inclusion in my growing collection, the Cold Steel hawk is of better quality, has carbon steel but also cost twice as much. I would not use this one for throwing BUT I would not hesitate to use it in a defensive action if it was closest item that i could get to. It makes a nice display on my home office wall with my other axes etc. Again for $20.00 you can't go wrong, very nice value.

this is a awesome hawk. great sheath. beautiful looking. and a fraction of the original, cold steel's, or American Tomahawk"s price. my only concern is the head is attached with epoxy and i have my doubts about it staying on or standing up to much abuse. i wouldn't buy this as a practice thrower or a working , camp tomahawk. but it is a great collector piece and good defense choice.

The handle broke the first day I got it. I was throwing it at a cardboard box, I missed and it hit some wood that was next to the box, I didn't throw it that hard but the handle broke off, I doubt that its impact resistant hardwood.
