Detailed Description

Vietnam Tomahawk


It took Peter LaGana a lifetime of armed combat and months of design and testing to perfect the Vietnam Tomahawk. Now, there's an exact replica of this historic weapon. Like the original Vietnam Tomahawk, the Cold Steel copy is light enough to be carried all day without causing undue fatigue. In combat, this lightness translates into speed; allowing quick changes in direction, even in mid-stroke! The blade of the "hawk" offers a wide, upswept primary edge for tremendous cutting, slashing and chopping potential. The secondary edge on the lower side of the head is specially curved and partially sharpened for both a cutting and hooking attack. When combined with the "V" shaped spike on the back of the hawk head, it is wickedly efficient. It comes complete with a leather sheath in the original Ox blood color.

More about 1055 Carbon steel:
1055 steel is right on the border between a medium and a high carbon steel, with a carbon content between 0.50%-0.60% and with manganese between 0.60%-0.90% as the only other component. The carbon content and lean alloy make this a shallow hardening steel with a quenched hardness between Rc 60-64 depending on exact carbon content. These combination of factors make this one of the toughest steels available because, when quenched, it produces a near saturated lathe martensite with no excess carbides, avoiding the brittleness of higher carbon materials. This steel is particularly suited to applications where strength and impact resistance is valued above all other considerations and will produce blades of almost legendary toughness.
