The Tomahawk is a weapon of various Indian tribes similar to a battle ax, but was carried by the white people almost as regularly as tools and weapons as Indians. Originally the tomahawk was a throwing axe. Later, the Tomahawk became a multi-purpose tool. Often the tomahawk served as a gift. Its symbolic effect was also significant, depending on whether a (peace) pipe or the ax blade is shown to the opponent. Even today, the Tomahawk is still in use, not only as a competition throwing weapon. Soldiers of the US Army used it as a versatile tool and effective melee weapon during both the Vietnam War and the Iraq War. More information...

Guarantee for breaking a throwing axe
A throwing ax is extremely stressed when throwing on the target. Critical is the sudden slowdown, whose character depends in particular on the exerted throwing power, material stiffness and structure of the target. Breaking of a throwing ax cannot be completely ruled out at such use. We experimented with different steels as well as with their heat treatment. We were able to break all throwing axes! The warranty for breakage refers exclusively to steel defects, such as hairline cracks. Throwing axes are always exposed to tear and wear. We will swap (or reimburse) your ax for free if it breaks due to a material defect. In such cases, a material defect is clearly visible on the steel fracture surface. In such cases do not hesitate and send the ax back to our address. A break of the wooden handle is also excluded from the warranty! A replacement wooden stock can be bought in hobby markets such as Hornbach, OBI, Baumax, UNIHobby, etc.
