12.10 Tomahawk & Knife. Individual matches are held for tomahawk and knife throwing. A schedule of the divisions of categories of competition is published in the match program. A minimum of one full revolution of the tomahawk or the knife is required. The match officer may establish a minimum throwing distance if required. The tomahawk must be single edge and that single edge must be no greater than 4" in length. Knives must be a traditional, usable style with at least one edge sharpened for use back to the hilt. The knife handle must be thicker than the blade and made of or covered with a natural material.

Authentic style tomahawks, each one hammered out by hand on an anvil as they were two hundred years ago. A mild steel eye is formed, then hammer welded to a plowshare steel bit to produce a hawk that will stand years of heavy use thrwoing or chopping. Heads are guaranteed. Comes fitted with a taered, straight grain hickory handle. Expect some very minor variations in head shape.
