I have been long fascinated with ancient weapons, and have started to accumulate several for my own personal collection. Martial Arts and handling weapons is just part of our normal everyday household. I have always been partial to the Sword and Shield as my preferred weapon and my husband’s weapon of choice is the Axe and Shield.
It wasn’t until he purchased himself a tomahawk for his own project that I started to think about owning a tomahawk. His tomahawk turned out amazing and when he took it with him on our trips into the woods I realized how much more versatile a tomahawk can be. It can be used for so many things besides a fighting weapon. After he allowed me to use it for chopping wood, or creating my walking stick I soon found my wanting one of my own.
My husband must have known that I was secretly harboring a love for his hawk, for on my birthday he gifted me with Cold Steel’s “Viking Hawk” I was over the moon, holding the “Viking Hawk’ in my hands was so empowering. I decided to do something I have never done before and that was to refurbish an axe and make it my own.
