I want a tomahawk.

My wife, the poor woman. Imagine yourself  watching TV watching some show and your spouse suddenly spouts his intense desire to own a tomahawk. Now, you have lived with this creature for almost a quarter of a century and even though you know he has made some weird comments and requests in the past, he comes up with crap like this that catches you off balance. My wife, what a saint.

Yes, the above butt-kissing paragraph is a subtle hint to my dear beloved that I still want a t-hawk for Christmas. And yes, the one we saw in Modern Marvels by RMJ Tactical is VERY expensive and we can’t afford it just now but you know there are other less expensive substitutes out there that can hold me till we win the Powerball.

I guess I got the bug for a tomahawk the same way most t-hawks fans get it: from the old Cowboys and Indians movies & TV shows. Watching the Indians sneaking into a fort and silently chop the distracted moron with a swift chop always made me shudder. As a close combat edged weapon, the tomahawk has a no-crap intimidating factor that no other weapon has. I don’t care who you are and what kind of exquisite PDW you might be carrying, imagine yourself in close quarters facing a charging man with tomahawk raised above his head and tell me your pucker does not go into gravitational collapse before supernova.

So my dear wife, I will settle for a small Oh-Ever-So-Tactical-Looking SOG Fusion Tomahawk that runs well under the $50.
