Cons: Construction, Handle Material
Great functional oddity.
I bought this particular tomahawk because reading the description, it was detailed as being one piece 1075 carbon steel construction. So with zero examples to handle in person, I decided to wing it and just buy it. I have now owned this item for almost a year. When it arrived in the mail it was sharpened with a good utilitarian edge bevel, wasn't knife sharp but was good enough to do the job of chopping. The leather sheath was constructed with heavy nylon cord stitching with Condor's swiveling belt loop and thick riveted ounce leather. As I was getting a feel for the hawk and it's paces in use, I had to adjust to the tomahawk head. Instead of being lined in the middle of the handle it is offset to the right shoulder holding it with the axe head facing away from you with the spike towards you. The spike is by no means sharp so I bench ground some stout edge bevels. And the handle is completely round causing it to twist in your hand with misaligned strikes. It would have been better if it was made oval to help with edge alignment. But this tool is a good chopper of wood, is thick enough to split pre-split logs via batoning, the steel is tempered to resist chipping or rolling and I have drove the spike through house roofing-grade sheet metal along with old 55 gallon barrels, plain boring old sheet metal, and old enamel steel dishes. I have yet to try it on vehicle doors for it's advertised/intended purpose. Ditched the paracord wrapping and am planning to leather wrap instead. All in all, I'd accurately rate it with a 4.5 out of 5.

Not what I wanted.
I am in the woods a lot and wanted more of a hatchet than a device I feel would be better used to help open up a car (Like a can-opener) that was in an accident than something to carry in the forest. There is too much weight in the handle and not enough in the head, also the handle is too long and on a back stroke, one is likely to hit theirself in the head of shoulder. I will give it to one of my sons. -------- I did however subsequently purchase: Condor Tool & Knife Throwing Axe 7" Carbon Steel Head - Part Number: CN4010BT ...... This is what I envisioned more than this item being reviewed. I ground some of the bottom of the head off so it would fit the sheath of this review item. It (CN4010BT) is perfect and weighted correctly as a carry item for my desires. You should include a sheath with it and call it a utility hatched.
