Not many people are experts with hatchets. The Hound from Game of Thrones makes it look really easy to tear through timber using an axe, but I’ll be honest, I’ve got the upper body strength of a cheap mannequin. Moreover, it’s important to know how to use an axe too. After all, you don’t want to be blindly swinging such a deadly weapon! The Tomahawk Hawkaxe is designed to not just be efficient, but also promote the correct style of using the axe. Its hollow blade area makes it unbelievably light, which means you need to hold the axe near the blade to exert force, because there isn’t much momentum with an axe this light. This little hack actually gets us to operate the axe the right way!
The axe also comes with a hammer-head on the back, making it a multi-tool. The hammer adds some much needed weight to the blade area, making sure the contraption isn’t too light. The design is inspired by its namesake, the Hawk. The blade resembles the hawk’s raptorial beak, giving it a unique cut-away shape at the bottom that makes it easy for the hand to hold onto the axe right behind the blade to ensure and enhance accuracy. What a wonderfully coincidental bit of bio-mimicry, eh?? 💡
