These superb tomahawks, axe and hammers are precision drop forged from 1055 Carbon steel. Drop forging is, without doubt, the best method of manufacture for any impact tool, particularly one with a cutting edge. During the forging process a metal ingot is heated almost white hot and then formed into shape in a series of progressive dies. The large steel dies are fixed to enormous compressed air hammers. Each die hammers the hot metal into a gradually more finished shape. The steel is kneaded and compressed into a completely homogenous mass making the grain structure uniform and minimising gas pockets or other imperfections that can ruin the construction of a hand forged hawk. This is why most good axes, hatchets, and hammers are drop forged. These hawks are differentially heat treated. This means that the cutting edge and hammer face is fully hardened, while the balance is left relatively soft to absorb the shock of striking blows.

Quality PriceWizThe Norse Hawk favored by many competitive throwers.
Its blade shape gives good target penetration and a wider stick angle.
I used this Hawk in the Eurothrowers Word Championship 2015.
I was the best of three people who qualified to represent the UK in this event.
Out of 130 people I was First in the UK and Seventh in the World.
This is the best Tomahawk that I have used so far, in my forty years of throwing I highly recommend it.
