Wingard Wearables is making tomahawks that are probably unlike any you have seen before. Their Backripper Tomahawk is extremely compact but still offers excellent reach. It’s forged W1 tool steel head has a main cutting bit designed to pierce and a hooked spike designed to, like its name suggests, rip backs. See the video below for details.
The Backripper Tomahawk has a hickory handle with a rectangular cross section to index the tomahawk in hand and prevent it from rotating. The flat shape also allows the tomahawk to lay flat against the wearer’s leg. Wingard Wearable applies texture to the handle with a hot file.
