Oh god. Oh god no! Wallet, please. Stop. We have bills to pay. There's no room for a Szabohawk in our financial pl- okay fine, next pay cheque.

Very cool! I don't think Texas even allows carrying a tomahawk, though I've never heard of anyone being prosecuted for it -- seems like for camping, it could almost be argued its a hatchet :).

Cool video MJ!

Looks like it throws good.

Now I want one that much more.

It's on my X'mas list. I've been sort of good.

Dang it me too, I was going to pass on this one and wait for the more traditional when it drops but man I'm feeling so weak...I wish someone would come up with a cure to this disease. Maybe I need to start selling some of the ones I dont use very often...yea right, thats just crazy talk I know. :rolleyes:

Naw, don't sell off the ones you don't use--those are for posterity. :) Rather, you should just sell off the sofa and recliner to make room for your new 'hawk throwing range. :D ;)

Got this up in the picture gallery, Image but thought I may as well add it to this thread too.

Comparison photos with a Cold Steel Trail Hawk.

I am not very good at being a collector. Because I feel I have to under stand and be able to use very item in my collection, Image even if that involves take out and knocking it around a bit.

As a young bloke; I worked with the Forestry Department and most days involved using axes. Axe using technique, is all about getting the most impact while using the least effort.

The Trail Hawk weight: 23.6 oz, the Szabohawk: 24.0 oz,

The Szabohawk is chucky little beast. But like any well designed tool, then you hold in the correct grip the weight disappears.

I had a used cardboard box lying around; so on to the ground it went, upside down. Took the Szabohawk in hand and aiming at the double layer on the bottom. With a simple flick of the wrist, it penetrated deeply through both layers. At first I wasn’t overly impressed.

Tried the same thing with Trail Hawk; taking a short grip, a flick of the wrist. The cardboard flexed and gave the point where the hawk glanced to the side and actually bounced off with out cutting. Image I had just sharpened the Trail Hawk.

Tried it a few more times and found that Trail Hawk would penetrate the layers of cardboard ok. It just took a bit more of a determined swing and not just wrist flick.

NowImage the Szabohawk was beginning to impress me.
