CS90VT: 90VT Vietnam Tomahawk
Cold Steel
 
It took Peter LaGana a lifetime of armed combat and months of design and testing to perfect the Vietnam Tomahawk. Now, there's an exact replica of this historic weapon.

Like the original Vietnam Tomahawk, the Cold Steel copy is light enough to be carried all day without causing undue fatigue. In combat, this lightness translates into speed; allowing quick changes in direction, even in mid-stroke!

The blade of the "hawk" offers a wide, upswept primary edge for tremendous cutting, slashing and chopping potential. The secondary edge on the lower side of the head is specially curved and partially sharpened for both a cutting and hooking attack. When combined with the "V" shaped spike on the back of the hawk head, it is wickedly efficient. It comes complete with a leather sheath in the original oxblood color.

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 homogeneous 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.

Wood grain will vary from piece to piece.

Vietnam is no mentioned in the product and the sharpening was real bad.

Awesome piece of History!
I bought this primarily for my permanent collection, and home/car defense. The leather sheath makes this a great value. For me, this is a inexpensive historic piece to be shared with friends and admired. If you want to throw or beat the crap out of your hawk, get a Sog Fasthawk.

Great Tool
I use it on camping trips for fire wood and I like that it is small to fit with me in my kayak to clear small brush in river. Great tool
