Mini-Tomahawk

Mini-Tomahawk

This past Christmas I was surprised by a very appropriate gift that my son-in-law gave to me. He asked his brother if he would be able to make a custom “mini-tomahawk” that he could give to me as a present. His brother is very talented when it comes to building things and thought that would be a possibility. You see he already had been making his own throwing knives, so this wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. What he came up with is very cool and I was pretty excited about it.  I just needed to figure out what to do with it. It doesn’t quite have the mass to stick in wood, well it might stick in a very soft wood such as cottonwood, but I thought it would be perfect for throwing indoors. The best thing that I have come up with so far as a target is a 2 inch thick piece of pink foam insulation panels. These do work great but are not very durable and the mini-tomahawk can do major damage to the target after just a couple hours of use.  For the time being though it is my target of choice and throwing the mini-tomahawk is great fun, especially with friends! I may be able to convince our builder to make more of these to offer for sale if there is enough interest. Let me know if any of you would have an interest in getting your own mini-tomahawk and I will pass along the information!
