This light-weight hawk is perfect for throwing or for carrying in your backpack. There are a ton of old stories about this tomahawk. One is the old Indian story of the axe being given to a great warrior. The axe, missing it's own heart, would then take the heart of any enemy it was thrown toward. It can double as a display and tool!
The Iroquois is fancier, with period style engraving cast into the head, along with file work. It has a flat, thin blade with a 3 1/2" cutting edge. The head weighs about 14 ounces. This is a very dressy 'hawk. It comes with an 18” hickory handle.
Viking Bearded Axe
The Viking Bearded Axe is a bit heavier than the belt axe, with a head weight of about 18 ounces. The cutting edge is about 4 1/4". This style was widely found, and could be used as either a tool or a weapon. When used on a long shaft the beard was handy for hooking the edge of enemy shields. It comes with an 18" handle.

The increased upsweep improves sticking. It comes with an 18" handle of American Hickory.
