    :) I'd venture to guess that "forced entry" tasks would be much more demanding in most cases than what most wood chopping hatchets /axes would normally have to contend with .

    This kind of tool really does need to be as tough as possible . I'm NOT expecting miracles from a ~$100 CRKT T-hawk , but it should have at least a moderately decent HT to be a valid product .

    I'm personally not planning to perform a "destruct test" . Unless someone wants to fund the loss ! ;)

    Umm, yeah. Your cricket isn’t going to be up for taking doors. You should get something like this.

    Or just turn around and donkey kick it. Maybe there will be a skull or two to cleave in twain on the other side, though. :)

    Probably will. You don’t wanna know what they were asking for the one I just showed you.

    That's all true if you believe marketing terms like "survival," "tactical," "bushcraft," etc mean more than design. Tnat is one way to understand knives, certainly.

    Enjoy your knife.

    You're right. You are always nothing, if not simple. My bad.

    I believe AFTER I test . That's the whole idea of this thread , other than to amaze and baffle . ;)

    Welp , I do believe I've done "got lucky" and been blessed with a cherry instead of a lemon ! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Received my first ever T-hawk yesterday and started right in with it . Continued thru today . Chopped at some seasoned hardwoods and did some throwing . Also used the pommel to do some prying .

    I'm really quite impressed with this hawk ! So far the HT seems fine , but I haven't pushed it by doing anything crazy... yet . :p

    Fit and finish is fine . Just one screw on the handle looks rough , but completely functional .

    The design is fantastic , lot of thought went into this hawk . Feels good in hand . Balance is perfect and handle is very ergonomic .

    The sheath is well designed and works , but is not very heavy duty . The shoulder strap , which I didn't use, is very thin nylon .

    What does that mean?

    It means that the balance point is in just the right place such that it handles faster and better for fighting or throwing . It's not as head heavy as a regular hatchet .

    I'll measure the spot and /or take a pic later .

    This one doesn't seem to hold up from what I've read. I really like the shape and size and have always wanted and RMJ. I'm wondering, is there a middle ground? Should I just save up the $500 for the RMJ?

    I bought mine from Walmart . 3 month return window . No huge risk involved .

    You are bound to get a better quality hawk and more selection from RMJ , but you'll pay 4 to 5 X . Depends on what you want or need . All up to you !

    For me , this hawk is really just a guy toy to play with . Unlikely my life will depend on it . The CRKT version is more than adequate for me .

    Are Gearbest an approved vendor now? I'm trying to stay away from steel that was a frying pan or chain link fence in a previous life.
