Weeping Heart Tomahawk
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.

Weeping Heart Hawk
Cold Steel®’s president Lynn C. Thompson has been training with an aluminum Weeping Heart Tomahawk for over 10 years and likes it so much that Cold Steel® decided to duplicate it in drop forged steel. Offered with an extra long blade and spike with the characteristic heart cut-out, it provides lethal chopping and piercing power from either end. And as an added bonus, its extra long length is a huge boon when slapping, parrying, blocking, catching and trapping an enemy’s weapon.
1055 High Carbon Steel
The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it’s often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
