Condor 4010BT Throwing Axe, One-Piece Black 1075 Carbon Steel, No Sheath.
The Condor Throwing Axe was inspired by the fighting axes of the Vietnam era. This rendition was created and designed by world-renowned and award winning knife and tool designer Arlan D. Lothe. The axe features a special piercing point and a razor sharp edge. It also features special "shoulder spike" that can be used to stop an opponent running away by placing the spike into the shoulder and then pulling him off balance onto the ground. This feature is also found on several long handled Viking battle axes.
The Condor Combat throwing tomahawk is 13-3/8" long and 7" wide. The axe edge is 3-1/2" long and the piercing point is 2-3/4" long with a weight of only 1.50 pounds. The material is 1/4" thick 1075 carbon steel, heat treated and tempered to about 53 Rockwell (a measure of hardness). This finish meets and exceeds several military specifications from the U.S. and other countries around the world. When maintained with light oil, this finish should not rust or stain. The handle is 1075 carbon steel slightly tapered at the bottom to make the Throwing Axe a great thrower.

It's a bit of change from the classic wooden-handled tomahawk, but it throws well and survives all manner of impacts far better than its wooden-handled brethren. Plenty sharp, good balance, couldn't ask for more. May also be useful for a light-duty backpacking axe. Very good price to fun ratio.
