This spiked tomahawk was made to resemble a mid to late 18th century piece. It has a cutting edge of 2 3/4 inches. The head including the spike is 8 1/2 inches wide. The forged head is secured to the split ash handle with wooden wedges. The length of the handle is 20 1/2 inches. This spiked tomahawk has been my personal hawk for nearly fifteen years. It has served me well providing wood for fires, field dressing deer and it even snagged a couple of salmon from a stream while I was on a survival outing in Alaska.
