Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Decklin Best Hawk For The Price!
I originally purchased the one with the leather washer handle. I use it when I go backcountry hammock/tarp camping. I saw the local Home Depot had the black in stock and snagged one up. I keep it in my truck.
These are a great buy for yourself or a friend. They are well made and just plain fun.
A huge plus is they're made in the USA. As an Infantry Veteran that pleases me. Tomahawks have a special place in the hearts of Infantryman.
The only downside is the sheath. I'd love to see a kydex or leather sheath available.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cledus My new favorite woods tool
This thing is tougher than woodpecker lips. I bought a SOG VooDoo Hawk and then this thing. I immediately sold the SOG to a friend. For the price, it cannot be beat. It's made here in America and its cheaper than a half plastic SOG. I used it on a camping trip recently and it outperformed my Estwing hatchet as far as being multifunction. The spike comes in handy when digging a fire pit too. I carry this thing everywhere in the truck with me. Just buy one already!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crux Excellent axe for the price
I bought this for a friend deploying to Afghanistan. I knew he wanted a good quality tomahawk and after reading up on them I chose the Estwing. He was quite impressed with it and I am glad I could do this small thing for him. As for the quality, we'll have to wait till he returns to see, but I have faith it will not fail him when he needs it.
The shipping was very fast, the price was good and Home Depot even gave me a small discount when I explained who it was for. Thank you for that.
The only thing I would improve on it is the sheath, which seemed rather large and cumbersome to release the axe quickly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stormy This Tomahawk feels real good in my hand,"Solid Steel" Wooden handle hawks break when ur life is at stake
This Hawk would be a great thrower. I prefer to throw my wooden handle Hawks . ESTWING R Made in U.S.A. and not a flea market toy .I would take it on any camping or outing but put a leather or nylon cord through the handle and a good belt so you don't lose it .Keep the sheath provided for practicing and wear a helmet and leather till you get use to the weight when working out.This is a true piece of art

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wyatt These are a field archaeologists's dream!
As a field archaeologist working through some of the densest thickets imaginable, I have nothing but good things to say about this axe. It is light and maneuverable in VERY tight conditions and is completely dependable. Please keep in mind my purpose in life is to move across country most folks would say is impossible to penetrate, but my axe has no problem clearing a way through the underbrush. I've found it to be easy carry (on an improvised belt loop), light, unobtrusive, and very handy. All in all, to me this axe is an indispensable tool
that makes my life in the field that much more comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blades Excellent tomahawk.
If you are looking for a very well-made, strong, and useful tool, you have found it. As far as tomahawks go, I don't think you will find a more durable and reliable one as this. Out of the box: sharp edge, great feel and weight, and as with all Estwing hammers...awesome grip. Splits wood very well, and a great thrower. The sheath is great for what it's worth. 5 out of 5.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DLamp4401 Awesome Tomahawk
when i saw that Estwing was coming out with a Tomahawk I could not wait for stores to start selling them. I found that HomeDepot.com was selling them so I ordered one. I found it to be as high of quality as the Other Estwing products i own. It goes to show you that the Good Old USA can still beat anybody when it comes to quality.
Its not that light but its all steel with a comfortable handle that you can hold tight and it will not slip out of your hand like some of the other tactical tomahawks with the hard slippery handle. it also had a nice edge for a working tool

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BugOutBoy Estwing is Estwing
I have been looking for a few pieces of equipment to fill out my "go bag" and I ran across this in searching for a sheath for my Estwing campers axe. This was the last item on the shelf but since I was already there, I picked it up along with one other item.
Negative - slight chips in paint on pick end of axe. With normal sharpening as some might do, this should be taken care of easily.
Positive - Great workmanship in this tomahawk. This is the first one I've picked up, and if others are as they say, with fiberglass/plastic handles, this will be hard to beat in future tomahawk purchases. Full length steel body only exudes quality.
Purchased to complete "go bag" items. Primary use will hopefully be never but if needed will use for trenching, clearing small areas and in a worst case scenario seems like it would handle breaking glass or popping a door open to get out of a building in a hurry fairly well.
I would definitely recommend this as a "go" or "bug out" bag item.
