The Tomahawk has a fine Flat grind, and cutting is 4" long. Overall length of
axe head is about 9". The axe is hand crafted of 1095 high carbon steel. It is
pictured with olive wood handle.
All my knives & are built from scratch. I begin construction with a blank bar
of steel, blocks or sheets of handle material, and any other raw materials
needed for the axe. Each axe is made by hand; in fact the only time these
knives leave my hand or are not under a tool directly in my hand is during the
heat treating process. Even then, I quench each axe individually while holding
it with tongs as it comes out of the forge during hardening.
I cut and shape handle material from blank pieces of stock, and often from
natural materials harvested directly from nature. The handles are secured with
epoxy and solid hardware. Each axe is truly one of a kind. While I offer
specific models, you can be assured you own the only BM knife exactly like it.
I've been using axe and knives for years. I'm always thinking of improvements
to make a better blade and axe head. Because of this, I have come up with
several of my own designs. The custom blades and axes shown represent years of
use and tweaking to put all of the best features together.
The highly polished handle is ergonomic and doesn't create hot spots with use,
feels great in hands. Very well balanced when it comes to swinging. Shape and
sharpness of axe blade cuts thru material easily with solid cuts and has
durable long lasting edge. Edge of blade is heat treated to 58-60 HRC. Leather
sheath has belt loops and retains axe well protects edge of blade. These tools
are hand forged using best practices for longevity and durability. This is a
high quality hand forged tool that has been quality tested to ensure that it
will stand up to extreme use. These tools will be passed down from family
Tools are fully functional and sharp edged, keep always in sheath. Thank you
