There is obviously some mistake or some people are simply NOT READING the thread
NO WHERE and I mean NO WHERE did I reference the Tomahawk as a weapon....
That is due to the FACT I do not consider it one.. It is a Survival/Bushcrafting tool
Reading is good
Assumption is bad
A tomahawk is an extremely light weight hatchet with a small head seated to a long haft and generally used for ceremony and day to day chores by the native inhabitants of North America. Its not much different than the Frankish axe

What is the definition of a Tomahawk?
a light ax used as a tool or weapon by American Indians.
Is it weight, dimensions, or merely the way its used?
A tomahawk (also referred to as a hawk) is a type of axe from North America, traditionally resembling a hatchet with a straight shaft. The name came into the English language in the 17th century as an adaptation of the Powhatan (Virginian Algonquian) word.

And finally I just wanted to point out that Native Americans that object to the word 'tomahawk' used in reference to a weapon have a legitimate right to be upset by those references. This is not some politically correct garbage thrown around for some kind of political impact.
A cutting tool
A close combat weapon
A throwing weapon
A ceremonial device
A symbol of warfare

I do like the idea of being able to replace the handle any time you want and very easily I might add
