The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I just received my copy of the Nov. issue of Knives Illustrated which will be on the newstands the first of October. Check it out.
My article is "Tomahawks as Tactical Weapons". I explored the Vietnam Tomahawk issue with a former LRRP Ranger who was there from 1968 to 1969. I would like some feedback from this group about the subject of are tomahawks
For instance, I have a Navy Seal friend of 18 years service as a Seal and retired from the Navy with over 20 years service. He told me he never seen or heard of any Navy Seal carrying a tomahawk in those 18 years. This was what the LRRP Ranger of Vietnam era told me as well. Yes I believe tomahawks were carried in Vietnam and could have been carried in every conflict we were involved in. However, they were never standard issue and when issued were used as a tool and not a weapon. So buy the magazine, read my article and give me some input.
If you were ever in any military special operations unit who was issued a tomahawk, please let me know by way of this form.
