    GG&G doesn't even belong on the list, the benchmade does not have a sharp edge, it's for breaching. The new Gerber is nice

    Based on the link my good friend Acera posted, I went with the S&W Extraction & Evasion Tomahawk...

    The reviews on Amazon for it were convincing, a few think it is a bit heavy but I actually like that; plus it has a full tang which I prefer. It's about ten bucks cheaper on Amazon than Academy, but once i had it in hand I decided I didn't want to wait. I also had something else to buy and a gift card so it was an easy decision and a good one, I think.

    Cheers! M2

    I'm not a tomahawk guy, but I really like my Marbles Camp Axe with American Hickory Handle. Probably the best small axe you can get without emptying your wallet on a Wetterlings or Gransfors-Bruks.

    I'm curious, what are you going to use the tactical tomahawk for? Currently, I keep an Estwing hatchet and rock hammer in my truck for any chopping/smashing/spiking needs, but I think something like this would make a better "multitool": Innovation Factory Trucker's Friend

    There are a variety of good uses for a tomahawk, which basically is a cool name for a handheld axe or hatchet. It's one of those things you don't realize you need until you need one! :D

    I had a chance to hold a United Cutlery M48 Hawk Axe Tactical Tomahawk at the Liberty Gun Show today (which, by the way, isn't worth the time or money unless you're really desperate to go to a gun show!), and it made me feel better about the S&W I got. Mine feels like it can stand up to the rigors of hard use, the M48 with its "nylon reinforced handle" feels like it would break after a couple of hard chops. Plus, the rubber handle on my full-length tang feels like a much better grip than the para-cord they wrap around the M48's handle.

    The only problem at the moment is now that I have one, I want to use it on something!

    Cheers! M2
