Hardcore Hardware Knives & Tomahawks.

Recommended Posts

Do any members here own one of these tools or afew or happen to use them in the past/present? Some of these tools cost about $400 ea. in Canada. Insane prices, but might be worth the price tag.

i have been looking for a good hatchet. got the SOG tomahawk on my amazon wish list.

 

i have a few sog items and they are good but these above appear to be great.

 

i have a personal murphy's law that state "if you buy a knife for over 100 bucks you will lose it".

 

i really like that multi cam and might copy their design by having a SOG or Gerber dipped in multi cam

The tomahawks are nice indeed, but i can't bring myself to spending $400 on one. LOL. I'd rather get some armour steel & fashion one of my own. It would cost me about 1/2 the price, less my time making it.

a regular hammer head hatchet with a pipe handle long enough to suit your stature makes a nice hollow handle tool

 

nothing against your post P210SIG but many cannot afford a 400 dollar hatchet and because it costs that much does not

 

mean it is any good or better or lasts longer.

 

styling does not equate into usability the head must have a certain weight and profile to be an effective I have noticed that

 

loggers use a certain style of axe and that style has not changed in a hundred years, there must be a reason.

 

I default to the style that has been chosen for that same hundred years and only changed the handle to a pipe handle

 

I have a common style double bit axe both of them cost me 5 bucks each at a yard sale the pipe was scavenged

 

and a torch and chisels used as wedges and 2# shop hammer the double bit axe I went old school with a hickory

 

handle poplar and steel wedges.

 

I have a estwing framing hammer I try not to use multitools for heavy work none of them are up to it although I love them

 

and own a few types I understand their shortcomings and use them for emergency repairs or on small items.

 

having built quite a few sheds cabins and leantos I want real tools counting on these new wave items they are not

 

built with the lifespan and leverage needed to build bugging out is a pipe dream eventually you have to settle

 

for health or game soil/ planting or time has come to lay down and relax it is over and things are normalizing,

 

if all you have is one of those hatchets IMO your going to have to trade for better tools that will be treasured

 

as in once you build a shelter you need split rail fences build corn crib smoke house furniture sheds barns etc.

 

even if your a nomad they spent seasons in certain areas for hunting fishing collecting fruit and other things

 

and to rest even temporary lodging needs to be strong enough to survive severe storms.

 

and it has to be done in a timely fashion or else you will be on the move just as you finish construction

 

and construction eats up man hours that could other wise be used to hunt fish and gather smoke dry and process.

 

it takes a whole 16 hour day to process a hog and all its meat cut it into strips to smoke render lard cook pork skins

 

scrape bones clean casings chop internal organs for sausage pack it smoke that too.

 

the only thing not used on a pig is the OINK and 3 more days of smoking the meat but I only use that as an example

 

if you just take the backstrap and leave the rest people who do that will starve it takes virtually being able to squeeze

 

blood out of a stone to survive in the wild it was not any fun in east texas in the 60's with population hardware stores

 

and premade and sacked concrete.

 

I have lived the ranch and camping out hunting and fishing canning gardening and watching my parents make ends meet

 

while cutting bailing hay {with a machine} if we hit the wall and go man power only 1/2 of the people will die in short order.

 

for lack of knowledge of how to use them multiply energy rigging cribbing lifting wedging and a hundred other things.

 

BUT tools are the cornerstone if nothing else a cache of "PROPER"tools for future use would be advisable.

I like the regular hawks. I have one that is a hand forged custom made and then another made by Cold Steel. A good hawk can be a lot of different tools. Slide it off the handle and it works pretty well for skinning. It chops pretty well for light work and in general it has a longer handle than a simular sized hatchet and that gives me reach if I want to use it defensibly. The cold steel hawk also has a pole on the back side so it is a hammer too. My custom job is great for throwing as well and I found hawks easier to throw than knives AND when they hit they hit hard. I like a pry bar too so I also carry a Stanley Fubar for that sort of thing.

 

Have any of you ever heard of a sounding hatchet. It is a VERY small and light hatchet of conventional configuration. I've carried it on a lot of little walks before I switched to hawks. The problem with so many axes and hatchets is that they are heavy and you just don't want to haul them. The hawks and Sounding Hatchet are light and actually weight less than a nice sized sheath knife.

If you're looking for a Hawk, look no further than RMJ Tactical. They're expensive, but they're near indestructible. They're a favorite of SOF and SF overseas and they've saved more than a few lives. I've read stories of guys chopping holes in the hardened structures in A'stan to make escape routes. They also chopped the tail off an old decommissioned Cobra with one.

For knives, I'm waiting on my Dalibor Sirius. Custom made from Croatia, should be done here in a month or so. Ordered in April.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
