I've been packing my GB small forest axe for a while and really don't think I'll change, but have been looking at the various hawks out there and wanted to get an opinion. My GB axe weighs in at 2lbs 3oz on my postage scale and some of the hawks are considerably lighter with a handle long enough to get some power on if the heads are heavy enough. I especially like the Pathfinder Hawk that Dave Cantebury sells from the looks of it and the 19oz weight.

Who has tried some and compared them to a heavier axe, and what do you prefer?

My advice to you is stay away from dave canterburys hawk, for one its WAY over priced. you can get the frontier hawk or trail hawk that will do the same as the one dave sells but cost alot less. I just got the frontier hawk and sent it off to get some custom work done on it. hope this helps out, im in no way talking bad about dave but for the money you can something just as good but for alot less $.

I use the Fort Turner Buck Hawk. It's a very nice hawk, takes a great edge does all that I need. Dana also has one with a hammer poll that looks pretty nice.

Anyone have experience with H&B Forge's line of tomahawks. A little cheaper then Fort Turner's

Over-priced? You can't get a quality blade unless you're willing to pay for it.

Dave's Hawk is made by Devin Price (2 Hawks), Devin calls it the Longhunter, Dave calls it a Pathfinder Scout, they are the same hawk. Unless you've seen and handled a 2 Hawks tomahawk you should not be bashing something you clearly do not understand.

2 Hawks tomahawks are the best value for the money and they come with a 25 year warranty on the head.......NOBODY that I know of offers a warranty like that.

I should know.....I have at least 200 happy customers that will back up my comments.

I have many HB forge hawks. They are great "budget" throwers. I practice with those, but when I get serious, I break out the Fort Turners!
