"The Hoffman Hawkin' Stick from TOPS is another modern take on the classic tomahawk design. Modeled after the European (FOKOS), a 13th century design walking stick, the Hawkin' Stick evolved after designer Terrill Hoffman spent a few years using a custom FOKOS. The Hawkin' Stick serves as a comfortable walking stick, camp tool and combat piece." ...Also, plenty of room for extra goodies in the bottom of the handle, like fire starter, blade, hooks, saw, a few dollars... safe and secure and out of sight... and your able to pull it out, when the moment is right.
Summary: this is a very handy little walking stick, equally at home in the woods or the street, looks inoffensive, but watch out!
