The head on the Condor Tool & Knife Indian Throwing Tomahawk is made from forged 1060 high carbon steel and is heat treated and annealed to about 50-55 Rockwell hardness with a Condor Classic finish. This finish is a perfected process of hand hammering and gives a classic and enhanced look to an already well made tool. The craftsmen at Condor use hand powered equipment to achieve this traditional pattern to give it a look as if it was hand forged over 200 years ago. The Classic series is a hit with historical camping fans, mountain men and colonial period war reenactors. The burnt American Hickory handle is strong and gives the tomahawk an ancient look. The included sheath is made from high quality, heavy duty, handcrafted leather.
