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 Buddy THE ULTIMATE TOMAHAWK!
Like most working folks, I want the best quality and value for my money, and THE HOME DEPOT offers top-notch tools and materials every time. I purchased my Estwing (Black Eagle) Tomahawk in-store for $39.98 and couldn't stop looking at it until I had to hand it over to the clerk for check out. I had no doubts about its quality, it's an Estwing product, the name speaks for itself, and like all the other tools I have purchaed at THD over the years I knew it was going to last. Sure enough, I scored again, this tomahawk is made above-and-beyond in terms of quality and materials. The nylon sheath fits the head of the tool very snug and can be carried on a wide military-style belt, the handle prevents shock and stress from tiring out my hand and wrist, and the overall product is just one exceptional piece of work. The cutting head and the spiked end were covered by a thick black rubber shield to protect the tool on the shelf and during handling, and they can be used again after being removed. I have spent a lot of money on tools of similar design, but the Estwing Tomahawk is by far the best at only a fraction of the cost. This tomahawk is pure business, there's no cosmetic eye-candy, it isn't for hanging on the mantle for display --- it's for hanging on your belt and taking to a demolition project or a trek in the woods. Plus it could serve as a life-saving tool to keep around in the event of an emergency. I expect that our amazing American soldiers will be carrying these before long, it could help them very much. Thank you for your time and buy with confidence from THE HOME DEPOT (online or in-store). God bless America and God bless the fine working folks that keep our country going.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smitty Worked great on the ice dams,
The past winter has left an ice dam situation on many of my northern exposed roofs, this tool proved to be light enough to use for hours and not fatigue the operator. They were able to control the swings and reduce or eliminate the potential damage to the roof

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 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.

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!
