Empress Tomahawk from Wingard Wearables

Wingard Wearables makes defensive weapons like no one else. Their designs are influenced by history but reimagined for modern applications like concealed carry. They blend the Bronze Age with modern thermo-plastics. The results are completely unique and sometimes even a little unhinged (in the very best way).

This is certainly the case with their new Empress Tomahawk – a tomahawk designed from the ground up for concealed carry. If the idea of concealed carry with a tomahawk surprises you, you are obviously new to Wingard Wearables because their Backripper tomahawk can also be concealed carried. However, while the Backripper feels more like a no-compromise, light, and fast fighting tomahawk that CAN be concealed carried, the Empress goes all-in on the concept. Everything about the Empress is fitting it’s intended purpose.

The head is cast from silicon bronze so that it can be carried directly against the body with no fear of rust. It is cast in a unique curved shape that it actually conforms to the hip of the wearer. It is compact with a 13″ handle and lightweight at just 9 ounces. The handle receives Wingard Wearable’s “scared and chared” treatment for extra grip and durability. The entire package is topped off with a kydex sheath system that allows for fast access (another hallmark of Wingard Wearables designs).


Like a Jenny Wren, but Smaller – RMJ Tactical Mini Jenny Release Date and Details

RMJ Tactical is set to release details on their much anticipated Mini Jenny – a compact version of their already compact Jenny Wren tomahawk. Full specs will beĀ  released on the RMJ Tactical website on Friday, November 11. Pre-ordering will open the following Friday (November 18).


RMJ Tactical has released teaser images of the Mini Jenny before and they released the image above today which shows us that the Mini Jenny will be machined/ground from 80CRV2 steel – a very tough steel with good edge retention.


Helm Enterprises, Grinding Division Tomahawks

You might know Helm Forge already for their line of hand forged knives. James Helm, the mastermind behind Helm Forge, is expanding operations beyond just forging with the introduction of his stock removal division: Helm Enterprises, Grinding Division.

The first offering that the Grinding Division is rolling out is a line of tomahawks. These hawks are water-jet cut from 1/4″ thick 4140 steel and then hand ground to final shape. They feature thick micarta slab handles. They come in 2 lengths, 12″ and 18″, and you can choose a spike or hammer poll.

The coolest thing about the spike ‘hawks is that they offer two different spike profiles: a combat spike and a pry spike. The combat spike is thinned out and features more aggressive cutting edges. The pry spike is more angular and can be use to puncture and pry your way into or out of sticky situations.

All steel tomahawks with full tang construction and micarta handles typical cost quite a bit of money. These tomahawks from Helm Enterprises are some of the most reasonably priced that I have seen (they start at $200 and don’t really go up much from there). These aren’t machine made, budget hawks either. These are packed with a lot of really well thought out features and made right here in the USA. They even offer heavy plastic training versions.

Check out Helm Enterprises, Grinding Division.

Tomahawks from Omnivore Blade-Works

Tomahawks have experienced somewhat of a resurgence in popularity over the last several years. They have long been prized for their versatility as weapons and survival tools. Most tomahawks look much the same as any other tomahawk has looked in the last 200 years. However, makers like Omnivore Blade-Works are pushing the limits of the tomahawk in design and function.

Badger and Recon models with micarta handle slabs and Cerakote

Omnivore Blade-Works makes several different models of tomahawks in various shapes. Many of the designs are purpose built for their application. For instance, the ETA model is built for first responders and designed to handle the abuse that comes with forcible entry and the Anubis is Omnivore Blade-Work’s vision of the ultimate combat tomahawk. While many of the models are purpose built, they still retain the versatility for which tomahawks are known.

These tomahawks don’t look much like their steel and wood predecessors. Omnivore Blade-Works tomahawks feature full tang construction from 1095 steel. There are cord wrap and micarta handle options. You can also choose to have your tomahawk Cerakoted or finished with electroless nickel. There are more than enough options to make sure that your tomahawk is unique.

You can check out all of Omnivore Blade-Works’ tomahawks on their website.
