The tomahawk, or fighting hand-axe, like the Bowie knife was a survival tool that also doubled as a powerful close combat weapon. Soldiers in the Revolutionary War were known to use the tomahawk in battle. Though the Native Americans are the most famous exponents of this weapon, their battle use and tactics are shrouded in mystery even today. For the soldier, the weapon was used in a manner consistent with 18th-19th century armed combat, using aspects of both saber and Bowie knife.
We thought it would be interesting to share a youtube that we discovered presented by wildernessoutfitters that demonstrates the skills and techniques of an experienced and knowledgeable Blacksmith in creating a hand forged Tomahawk much like the 30-300 shown on this page. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did, and find a new appreciation for the people, skills and craftsmanship that are behind the creation of many of the historic replica products found at NobleWares and other historic replica and collectibles retailers and distributor outlets.
