Almost every tomahawk you can buy on the market today can trace its roots back to the Hudson Bay Axe used for centuries in the vast forests and swamps of North East Canada. Famous for its versatility and effectiveness, the Hudson Bay Axe became indispensable for anyone trying to wrest a living out of the wilderness. We too are also great admirers of this famous axe pattern, so we decided (like so many before us), to re-scale it down into tomahawk format. Drop forged out of 1050 Carbon Steel, like all our hawks, it offers a 3 ½ long cutting edge in the classic shape as well as a substantial poll that can be used for pounding, crushing, and hammering. You can even drive nails and spikes with it as it too, like the blade, is differentially hardened. Supplied with a tough, straight grain American Hickory handle, its ready for a life in the woods and in a pinch will also double as a frighteningly effective weapon.
