Tomahawk

DescriptionEdit

The tomahawk had a stone or bone (and later, metal) head attached to a straight wooden shaft. The Apache would often decorate a tomahawk with silver, beads, and feathers and then give the tomahawk as a gift to a chief.

StatsEdit

  • Length: 14 inches
  • Weight: 2 lbs
  • Composition: Bone, stone, or iron blade

UsesEdit

Tomahawks are primarily used as melee weapons, although they can also be thrown a short distance. The phrase 'bury the hatchet' is when two Native American tribes bury two sacred tomahawks to declare peace after a war.

Some armies today use a modern lightweight tomahawk similarly to a combat knife. Some E-Tool shovels are wielded like tomahawks and some special forces like the spetsnaz train specifically to learn to throw them like tomahawks.

In ShowEdit

The Apache team tested three different types of tomahawks. A tomahawk with a stone head and one made from a horse's jawbone were tested up close on a ballistic gel head. This makes the Tomahawk one of the few weapons that can be made out of at least 3 types of materials.

Several metal-headed tomahawks were tested as a throwing weapon. When tested in the sim, the Tomahawk recieved 153 kills.
