Sword ping indeed... Kukri is close enough. :-)

I don't normally use a blade, but when I do, I appreciate some extra length and sharps. For door-to-door pests, I keep this out of their view, along side the doorway.

While Cold Steel calls it a tomahawk, the 19" handle tells me it's more of a battle axe. And they are now making a trainer, with a rubber head rather than steel. I'll now be able to practice my "repel boarders" defenses without risking anything worse than knocking over a lamp. Anybody who practices mixed weapons training might want to see how the trainer stacks up. :)

I saw one of those tomahawks in the “Cold Steel” catalog”

They say it was popular with U.S. troops in Viet Nam.
