Using the 5 Ring Tomahawk Target

Lot’s of different ways to enjoy throwing the tomahawk. In this video I explain using the 5 ring target markings  Now get out there and start throwing and sticking the tomahawk!


H&B Forge


I had the pleasure of speaking with Jarrod from H&B Forge at the NMLRA shoot in Friendship this past September. I was only able to be there for a couple hours and stopped by his booth where he showed me some custom damascus steel tomahawks that he recently finished for a customer.


Those are some nice looking pieces for sure. Acid etched to add depth and texture, these are labor intense to produce for sure. Jarrod had numerous  pieces on display and as usual they are all very impressive and a good value too. If you are in the market for a new throwing tomahawk or other edge weapons be sure to check out the H&B Forge.



The Shark (?)


Although this isn’t exactly a tomahawk you might find it interesting. I had this huge meat cleaver thing hanging around ever since… it actually was from my grandparent’s farm when they used to do hog butchering. We are talking early to mid 1900s. This thing is rather massive and heavy with the blade up to 1/2 inch thick! Anyway, I thought it might be a bit more interesting, and easier to handle if we removed some of the blade turning it into a more formidable looking tool. I made a rough sketch on the blade and went off to visit Beaver Bill.


With a little slicing and dicing and grinding and polishing by Beaver Bill the new shape starts to become reality!


A little sanding and smoothing on the handle and I believe the finished piece is certainly a conversation starter!


Maybe it looks a little like a… shark?
