This tomahawk was hand forged by me, and is a top-notch tool. it has a 3 inch cutting edge, which holds a razor sharp edge even after hard use. on the other end is a 1 and 3/4 inch spike, which will stick into or demolish almost any surface with ease, including a concrete block. the head measures 6 inches along the spine from the tip of the spike to the edge of the blade. the handle is osage orange, and the head is securely held by its tang with steel pins and epoxy. this is one of my favorite products, and is absolutely dependable.
