Bone Breacher Tomahawk
The Bone "Breacher" Tomahawk is the big bad brother to the Bone Hawk. It is a much larger version designed to be the absolute largest tomahawk that can still be carried and properly wielded by one man (and used with one hand if necessary). The only design difference between the Bone Hawk and the Bone Breacher other than size, is that the Breacher has had the bottle opener removed to prevent possible hang-ups when penetrating deep into metal and to be more comfortable in the hand when used as a pry bar. This beastly weapon of destruction excels at all breaching tasks. It serves as an excellent vehicle mounted tool because it outperforms a common hatchet while still being much lighter. The Bone Breacher is one of the largest, and by far the most devastating tomahawks available on the market today.
We started planning and designing the original Bone Hawk several years ago now to fill a void in the market for a lighter, faster, stronger, better designed, and better built combat tomahawk. The Bone Hawk is specifically designed to complement modern combat tomahawk fighting techniques, to handle a vast array of bushcraft tasks, to aid as a dynamic entry device, and to be used as a multiple use tool in non-combat scenarios. We realized the need for this hawk after receiving various reports from members of the Special Operations community that the tomahawks available to them were either too large and heavy to carry and be readily accessible, or too weak to trust their lives with. We also experienced the weakness issue with other tomahawks first hand during one of our Wilderness Survival Training Courses when one of the lighter hawks that included polymer in the construction broke under only light to moderate use. The third major issue with all tomahawks preceding the Bone Hawk was the lack of martial arts inspired design. The Bone Hawk is the first ever full tang, dual handle design tomahawk that allows for use both as a close quarters, and as a mid-range weapon.
Although the Bone Hawk was designed specifically for Special Forces soldiers, it features a vast array of potential applications due to its superior design that makes it an extremely viable tool for more than just the tactical professional. Because the primary intended use of the Bone Hawk is that of a weapon, we made sure its design would complement modern tomahawk fighting martial arts techniques. These design features include but are not limited to: the finger grooves at the top of the handle facilitating a strong choke grip for close quarters engagements, the un-sharpened beard curved at the proper angle for hooking and trapping movements, the extended and ribbed pry-bar pommel also to be used for trapping techniques, and the arc of the rear tanto spike that mimics the arc of a natural human swing for maximum penetration on impact. For more information on tomahawk combatives we recommend Tuhon Jared Wihongi’s Pekiti-Tirsia Kali method. He has been training Special Forces soldiers in knife fighting techniques for quite some time and occasionally opens up classes to the general public. He can be contacted at www.jaredwihongi.com.
The solid, one-piece, 5/16" thick, differentially flame hardened 4140 chromoly steel construction design makes the Bone Hawk virtually unbreakable. A shaft hardness of approximately 30 Rockwell gives our tomahawks excellent handle spring and flexibility. This means the hawk won’t transfer energy into the hand when striking hard objects, thereby preventing hand injuries and limiting loss of your weapon. The contact surfaces being in the mid to high fifties on the Rockwell scale means your tomahawk wont chip or break when striking hard objects.
To further aid in shock absorption, the handle on the "Modern Warrior" version of the Bone Breacher is wrapped in approximately 48 feet of 550 paracord. A high quality paracord wrap provides a very sure grip and wont crack, fall off, or swell with temperature variations. It’s also lighter than most any other handle material, and has hundreds of bushcraft and survival uses (cordage is invaluable in a survival situation). The Samurai perfected the art of fighting with edged weapons hundreds of years ago, and did it with weapons that had wrapped handles. We didn’t see the need to change that.
The handle on the "Ancient Warrior" hawks is made of rain forest mahogany that Greg sources himself by searching the jungles of Central America for fallen trees. He does this because when you buy precious hardwoods like mahogany they are often illegally sourced and you are promoting the deforestation of our planet. He loads up one of our expedition vehicles at least once a year to go into some of the most remote regions on the planet for weeks at a time to search for the fine wood you can find crafted into these luxury handle slabs.
The kydex sheath is designed specifically to be jumpable (for missions requiring aircraft insertions), quickly accessible with both primary and secondary means of retention, and highly modular. The modularity of the sheath allows for almost any means of carry imaginable. We normally only ship hawks to civilians with secondary retention on the sheath upon request. This is because most civilians won’t be jumping out of planes with their tomahawk, and the primary retention on our kydex sheathes is excellent.
Our tomahawks can not only chop through light steel doors, they come sharp enough to shave with. They can easily shear through flesh and bone, while at the same time perform breaching or bushcraft tasks without chipping the edge. If you repeatedly strike a hard object with the face of your Bone Hawk the edge will eventually roll rather than chip. This allows for easy re-sharpening while providing for minimal loss of material.
Aside from being devastating to soft tissue, the face of the Bone Hawk is of a traditional curved design that can handle most bushcraft chores with ease. It excels at chopping and can be used to whittle and create fine shavings in a choked up grip. The rear spike is designed to penetrate hard objects and will easily penetrate soft armor. We have added destruction testing videos on Instagram of the spike being repeatedly slammed through the tailgate of an old Chevy pickup with no damage to the hawk. We also have videos on Instagram of a Bone Breacher chopping through the steel door of an old Jeep TJ. The rear spike and the pry bar pommel both make our hawks surprisingly effective breaching tools. Everyone has down time, including soldiers. For this reason, and for maximum utility we added a bottle opener, and hex heads in the most popular standard sizes to our hawk.
Our edged weapons available for sale to the general public represent a balance between a beautiful heirloom quality work of art (Ancient Warrior version), and the "no frills" hard use configuration that most closely mimics the setup we give to Special Forces soldiers (Modern Warrior version). Yes, we donate edged weapons to our great Nation’s most elite fighting forces, whose lives depend on their equipment, because they are the reason we started making the most advanced blades and defensive tools in the first place (Many of the pictures on the Bone Hawk page feature the first Bone Hawks ever produced, in use with US Special Operations Forces in the fight against ISIS). Every one of our blades is set up for toughness, modularity, and low visibility in the widest range of environments. They are either sandblasted and treated with natural earth tone Cerakote (Modern Warrior), or chemically treated to artistically patina the steel itself, then clear-coated with Cerakote clear (Ancient Warrior). Cerakote is absolutely the best final finish available for hard use steel and makes our hawks almost completely impervious to rust and corrosion, while reducing surface friction to increase cutting and penetration ability. Every fully custom Bone Tactical edged weapon is a beautiful, hand-finished, collector quality piece that can be passed down through generations as an heirloom yet is still very capable of hard use. Due to the fact that our edged weapons and tools are completely custom, no two blades are the same. We are continually making minor improvements, as reports come back from the field via the Special Forces soldiers using our weapons, to keep them the most effective fighting tools in the world. Therefore, your product may differ slightly from the pictures shown here. All sales are final.
*All Bone Tactical employees will be in Central America, Europe, and the Middle East from June 10 - July 10 2019. Any orders placed during these dates will ship July 10, 2019. Thanks in advance for your patience.*
