    i bought mine (don't **** yerselves, it was a dowry) from a small mountain tribe with a long and bloody martial history. she knows and appreciates weapons, can field strip an ak-47 in 13 seconds blindfolded, and has bought me knives and swords for most every gift-giving holiday.

    Tomahawks are a true piece of North American heritage. I bought one from Fort Turner Tomahwaks in Northern California. It's hand forged and very well made and only cost $45. It's fun to throw at trees, and trees don't press charges or file lawsuits.

    Hell

    I have at least a half dozen tomahawks. Would have to go check out the closet to make a count. Some are mixed in with other native American weapons and art.

    We about destroyed a phone pole back in the USMC with our throwing practice.

    While it's not a practical weapon to carry around, these, and the knives I've made over the years, are handy to grab if needed around the house (young ones make it necessary to have the firearms stowed).

    Besides, the feathery beaded ones with the peace pipe bowls look cool.

    As far as I am concerned, tomahawks are as interesting as they are deadly...which is a good deal. Until now I never considered the hawk and bowie combination though. I was always thinking more of a Norse hawk and small shield, or Norse hawk and a short sword. I guess it only makes sense that an American version would have already been worked out.

    Most of all though, I like the idea of having a primary weapon that can also trap an enemy weapon like the hawk can; it's sort of like having a cloak and dagger combination but your cloak can cleave people too. And while you can't really carry a hawk with you except if you are hunting\camping, I use to hide an American hawk in my bed as a precaution. Also makes a mean tool for making fences and yard work. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a wooden trainer and having some sparring goodness with the ARMA folks.
