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.

  Pre-contact Native Americans lacked ironmaking technology, so tomahawks were not fitted with metal axe heads until they could be obtained from trade with Europeans. The fur trade began in the 1500’s as an exchange between Indians and Europeans. The Indians traded furs for such goods as tools and weapons. A tomahawk is a type of axe from North America, traditionally resembling a hatchet with a straight shaft. The name came into the English language in the 17th century as an adaptation of the Powhatan (Virginian Algonquian) word. Tomahawks were general purpose tools used by Native Americans and colonials alike, and often employed as a hand-to-hand or a thrown weapon.
