Our Tactical Tomahawks and Axes are made from 4140 Chrome-Moly steel. This material is often chosen by designers for its toughness, and is used extensively in machinery, heavy equipment — even tanks. The tensile strength is much higher than that of commonly used knife-making steels.
High durometer rubber is used for the handle of the Shrike. This provides supreme durability and electrical insulation of about 2500 volts. The G-10 handles are very tough, having over twice the impact resistance of Acetal, hickory and other commonly used materials. They also have a low moisture absorption rate and excellent UV resistance.
The spike will penetrate a Kevlar helmet, easily punch through a steel clad door, and eats tires for breakfast. In other words, you can stick it in an assailant or use it to punch holes in 55-gallon oil drums to string roadblock cables (a common tactical tomahawk use).
The blade geometry is designed for taking abuse. My concept was this: The spike and beard are your killing edges; the forward edge is for general field use, taking care of chores and chopping around. One guy in Afghanistan used his to chop armament off of a downed Soviet MIG.
