Spontoon Hawk, Diamond Shaped Blade
Drop Forged Tomahawks
Cold Steel®'s high-quality tomahawks are precision drop-forged from 1055 high carbon steel. The drop-forging process offers many distinct advantages for the production of impact tools, particularly ones that require a cutting edge. By using a series of progressive dies affixed to high-powered hammers, the steel is kneaded and compressed into a completely homogenous mass, creating a very uniform grain structure and minimizing imperfections. All Cold Steel® Tomahawks are also differentially heat-treated, with a cutting edge and hammer face that is fully hardened to take a keen edge, while the body of the blade is kept soft to absorb the shock and impact of striking blows.

While most tomahawks are chopping tools, there was a less popular alternative known as a spontoon hawk. Made with a blade expressly designed for piercing, it was capable of delivering deep puncture wounds that were quite lethal. Often found with a sloping or diamond shaped point and sharpened on both sides, the spontoon hawk offered little to no utility value but was undeniable a fearsome and brutally effective weapon.
Today, modern made spontoon hawks are extremely rare (outside of the cheapest quality imports), so Cold Steel® decided to remedy the situation with own models. Available in faux pipe hawk style, they feature classic sloping and diamond shaped blades that can be fully sharpened!
1055 High Carbon Steel
The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
