Drop Forged Tomahawks
Cold Steel®’s high-quality tomahawks are precision drop-forged from 1055 high carbon steel. The drop-forging process offers many distinct advantages for the production of impact tools, particularly ones that require a cutting edge. By using a series of progressive dies affixed to high-powered hammers, the steel is kneaded and compressed into a completely homogenous mass, creating a very uniform grain structure and minimizing imperfections. All Cold Steel® Tomahawks are also differentially heat-treated, with a cutting edge and hammer face that is fully hardened to take a keen edge, while the body of the blade is kept soft to absorb the shock and impact of striking blows.

Norse Hawk, Flat Textured Finish
The influence of the Vikings’ famous weaponry far out-lasted the reign of the Vikings themselves. Their axes in particular have influenced many designs that can be seen to this very day. Cold Steel®’s Norse Hawk has a curved cutting edge to facilitate deep, slashing cuts and terminates in two sharp points. Traditionally, the bottom point would be used to capture an opponent’s shield, leg, arm, shoulder or neck, momentarily immobilizing or bringing him closer and easier to dispatch. The top point was used to execute direct chops or, with a thrusting motion, to pierce or gouge. The Norse Hawk remains one of Cold Steel® most popular Tomahawks – both with reenactors and with sport throwers who admire its balance, effectiveness and effortless sticking power!
