In 2001 members of the Air Force’s 820th Security Forces commissioned Ryan M. Johnson to revive 18th-century battle axes with the aid of 21st-century technology — the result is the RMJ line of tactical tomahawks. RMJ forged each axe from a single piece of tool steel to provide military personnel with a tough fighting and utility axe that can be counted on.
Like a good knife, a good tomahawk can prove useful in many ways to a soldier/airman/marine in the field. The 18″-long tool features a 3″ striking edge and a 3″ spike that can puncture body armor — you might also employ it in less lethal operations such as climbing, digging, forced entry, and search and rescue operations. The Eagle Talon version comes flat-ground on the striking side for general cutting while the beard is hollow-ground for ripping…gulp. RMJ applies a corrosion-resistant finish for long life in harsh environments.
I usually don’t go for these high-dollar specialty items (I’m a superknife man myself), but the quality and finish of this item really caught my eye. RMJ charges $360 when it’s in stock, which it’s currently not. Military and civilian first-responders get $55 off.
