CS90RH: 90RH Rifleman's Hawk
Cold Steel

The Rifleman's Hawk has a functional hexagonal hammer poll designed for serious work, like pounding nails or stakes. Reminiscent of some early American designs, the Rifleman's Hawk features the "peace pipe" appearance that was commonly used by Native Americans during the last century.

In terms of fun and sport, this hawk throws and sticks extremely well. If you want something that hits its target like the proverbial "ton of bricks," then the Rifleman's Hawk is for you!

Drop Forged Tomahawks

These superb tomahawks are precision drop forged from 1055 Carbon steel. Drop forging is, without doubt, the best method of manufacture for any impact weapon, particularly one with a cutting edge. During the forging process a metal ingot is heated almost white hot and then formed into shape in a series of progressive dies. The large steel dies are fixed to enormous compressed air hammers. Each die hammers the hot metal into a gradually more finished shape. The steel is kneaded and compressed into a completely homogenous mass making the grain structure uniform and minimizing gas pockets or other imperfections that can ruin the construction of a hand forged hawk. This is why most good axes, hatchets, and hammers are drop forged.

These hawks are differentially heat treated. This means that the cutting edge and hammer face is fully hardened, while the balance is left relatively soft to absorb the shock of striking blows.

Great Bargain and Awesome Tomahawk
I have not used it much but as an Ironworker I can tell you this is going to get lots of use and last forever! The design with the tapered handle/head that seats the head more securely each time you swing the hawk is unbeatable. The set screw to hiold the head from slipping up the handle is a good idea that time will tell the full tale on.This is a fantastic bargain! Everybody should have one for camping not only for firewood but for self-defense especially at the price!

Rifleman's Hawk
This is a great hawk for camping and such! After making some adjustments to the head and the handle I was able to get a great friction fit and don't need the set pin anymore.
