American Tomahawk carries on the legacy of Pete Lagana - World War II Marine Corps veteran - and is currently owned and operated by Ryan Johnson and Richard Carmack of RMJ USA, Jeff Kirkham of READYMAN and John Hickman, speed-thinker extraordinaire. Technically a group of incredibly skilled outdoorsmen capable of surviving for years with nothing more than their Tomahawk and a blade of grass. We could go into a long dissertation of military backgrounds, capabilities, achievements and good ‘ole American stories that will ignite your patriotism, however, suffice it to say that these men are determined to create one of the singularly most reliable and affordable multi-use tools you might need; for wherever your adventure might take you. The Model 1 has a forged 1060 head featuring a forward cutting edge, and an aggressive 3.25" long Spike ready for your biggest chores. The high mount allows you to choke up right behind the blade for finer work, food prep, etc. The forged head with a connected handle makes for a lightweight and traditional design that is easy to maintain.
The Model 1 is designed to be small and light enough to never be left at home, but big enough to serve as your lightweight axe/chopping/smashing tool. The Model 1 comes with a molded bottom-eject Kydex scabbard that includes Low-Ride MOC straps for belt carry. Please check out our full line of MOC mounting options for your Model 1, we have a shoulder strap option, MOLLE mounting and others available to purchase. Great for: Camp | Utility | Backpack | Throwing | Preparedness Kit | Emergency Tool
If you are buying a Model 1 to throw, go with the Nylon version. The forces of throwing will dramatically increase the wear on the hickory handle.
