This M48 Apocalypse tactical tomahawk is the ultimate tactical weapon. It is lightweight to be carried all day without added muscle fatigue and the blade of this offers a wide, upswept axe blade for mammoth chopping, slashing and zombie cutting potential.
Good axe, the pike end drives through glass and would very well, i practiced breaching on some old doors and it did great, got through them very fast. The only downsides ive noticed is the axe end isnt balanced very well for throwing, the pike end is better if you throw it with it facing forward, Also the paracord wrap comes off easily, ive had to rewrap it after every use, the last time i wrapped it i used cement glue to hold it to the handle and ive gotten a couple uses out of it, Overall its a great buy and i would buy it again.
Very happy with the zombie themed Christmas presents I got. this one in particular was for me ;) fairl sharp and a good point on the spike. pleased with the handle, just hoping the cord wrapping stays on. very good Tomahawk for the price.
I had this axe for about 3 weeks. My target was a pine tree so not a super hard wood. And like other people have said it broke below the third bolt! If you want a good reliable tomahawk I'd recommend the wood handled throwing hatchet axe. You can buy 4 yes 4 at a low price than this peice of crap.
This tomahawk worked great for a couple days, but then the handle broke due to a flaw in the injection molding. I sent a comment to United Cutlery, and right away I recieved a free new handle, and it hasn't broke again. The head is built great and can do some serious damage to any tree, target, or attacker.
This is has exceeded my expectations. Truly impressed with the quality and is great value for the cost. Planning to purchase another one soon.
If you buy this, inspect blade on the handle and if it is loose (which happens with many weapons that will be shipped) then tighten it before use or throwing SO IT WONT BREAK. Its fiberglass so it will be even weaker at weak points but stronger at build points. Be aware that when you buy this after a certain amount of use the blade will have to be sharpened but you will have to use a hand grinder or a bench grinder due to the thickness of the blade from the edge. Besides that, with enough force, you may cleave bone. And that spike is lethal.
This axe is really nartatly.and looks great ,perfect size ,and will protect you from the zombies thank you BudK.
AFTER 1 DAY OF THROWING THE HANDLE BROKE AT THE END OF THE SHAFT ON THE AXE HEAR, WE THRU 4 HATCHETS FOR HARBOR FREIGHT EQUAL AMOUNTS OF TIMES AND NO PROBLEM
This tomahake is Awesome, ive read the other reviews on it but i dont now why they think this axe sucks, i have own this weapon for about 10 months now and with in the firs 2 its started to get marks on the tomahake it self. but that is because i used it ALOT, i thru it i used it on some Drywall,chopped fire wood, its just an Awesome buy,It is the most Durable Axe i have ever owned,My only complaint is thar the core wrapped handle took some geting use to and it came undone after aroud 5 or 6 months
Sick the paracord wrap is bad I would take it off. But the spike and blade are awesome I love it can't wait to use it more BUY THIS HAWK I own some of the M48 items this is the best
Purchased this a gift for my son. It broke the first day. Finally got Bud K to replace it but I should not have bothered as the replacement broke the same day it was received. The handle is simple not strong enough to take any force.
I got this tomahawk over 5 months ago, and has done me good. I have seen people that throw it (I haven't personally thrown this yet) but from how most of these break is by people throwing them, that to me is probably abusive to the tomahawk, so I probably won't be throwing this (I'm not picking on anyone who has been throwing it.)But awesome tomahawk! (Just remember not to throw it :) )
Everyone keeps saying it broke after throwing it... What do you expect?!?!? It's not a throwing axe or it would be called m48 throwing axe lol it's a tomahawk & if your gonna throw it for any reason it should be at your enemy not an oak tree or whatever hard object you people are throwing it at. This is a great weapon and I recommend it to all!
This item lasted me about 3 or 4 months (of throwing, chopping, etc.) I personally was dissapointed when My sister's Fiance threw it and it broke the handle (But everyone knows that if you throw it, it will break after any amount of time), however the stainless steel construction is still very durable, as well as useful. After my handle broke a friend (NOTE: this person is nolonger my friend) made me a Very Nice Oak handle for it (NOTE: as mentioned before all handles will break sometime after being thrown.) And after the Oak handle broke (NOTE: This is the 3 thime that I was able to salvage and use the head of the tomahawk) I made it into a rather nice battle ax. So even though the handle broke (which was inevitable) the Stainless Steel construction was still in perfect shape so that I could always use the head of the ax again.
I bought this for my 14 yr old son after just a few throws the handle broke in half along with the metal parts.He has several throwing axes and knives but this one is the worst.
The M48 exceeded all expectations and was better,in person,than I expected. You can't go wrong with this item. For me, it's a collector's item, and will remain clean and pristine in my showcase.
Seems to be a tough tool. Paracord handle unraveled after a few throws but the hawk itself seems very tough.
This Tomahawk is just plain awesome! Looks great and functions perfect. Going to buy another for back up. The blade sharpens up razor sharp!
Great thrower, stuck it into a large cedar tree well over 100 times over 2 days, not a dent or nick on the blade, sinks the blade to the handle nearly every time ordering a sec to work on the double tommy throw.
Ok so I've had the m48 for a couple months now, and I liked it a lot.. well as much as one can like an axe living in a residential neighborhood. Anyways I go up north this weekend and carry the m48 with me on a day of four wheeling, this hatchet made all the difference. It was lightweight and super sharp. I cut through fairly thick trees that blocked our path wih ease. Trees that had 6 inch trunks were cut down in seconds.. its a great tool.. normal guy using it for normal shit. I wish a bear would have rolled up on me, with the m48 in hand I was ready!
I like the balance of the 'hawk..I still haven't put a sharp edge on it as of yet but I have thrown it. A little disappointing at 1st..10 throws and it wouldn't stick. 11th throw, the paracord grip became unraveled. It actually felt better with it off. May do what another person mentioned and use grip tape..A little more practice and it was sticking with the rear "spike". The main blade hasn't stuck yet..Think I'll be ordering a double bladed axe next, or 3..
Me and my buddey destroyed a few speekers and pried open a waterheater and took a door of a car with this apocalypse hawk.
I got this for Christmas last year and it is absolutely fantastic. It came super sharp out of the box. It was my first "Zombie" product and at first I was hesitant about the green but that has quickly grown on me and gives it a distinct flare. I also train in several different martial arts systems including traditional and nontraditional weapons. I have undertaken using this tomahawk to formulate our own methodology of tomahawk fighting. My one wish/request would be for BudK to create some poly trainer replicas for safe teaching/instructing purposes.
kinda broke it the first day... but just the spike.....but still a champ fyi dont hit mini ceder blocks!!
Great Tactical Throwing Tomahawk. Great addition to my B.O.B. (Bug Out Bags). Have since bought 2 more (Orange & Yellow) but the Apocalypse is my favorite. Accurate for throwing. Can't wait for the Zombie Apocalypse.
Got this as part of the tomahawk/knife/bracelet combo. Feels light yet very well put together. An awesome addition to my zombie killing arsenal. Only complaint is the para-cord grip. Feels very bulky and hard to grab. Fixed this by removing the para-cord and replacing it with hockey tape. Feels a lot better now.
Wow! I was amazed by the quality and construction of the hawk. It is light and maneuverable, yet heavy enough to cut and split wood. The blade and spike are incredibly sharp! The handle is very grippy and even better with the paracord. The hawk is perfect for throwing and the spike will stick in practically anything! If your wondering whether to purchase this or not, do it! This is an amazing deal at just 39.99! I will be getting another only in black, thanks Budk!
This has become a very spectacular & useful addition to my survival gear. A multi-use tomahawk.
This axe is a win buy. It is very light , very easy to manuver. ir comes with a nice sheath that is durable and the blade on both ends are sharp.. really sharp . It would def mess someone up in a situation. It is worth the price.
A great addition to my Zombie Apocalypse Preparation kit! It is solid and well balanced. Makes me wish for the Zombie Apocalypse so I can try it out!
Just got it today wow this axe is now my best friend will have alot of fun gonna get 1 more thanks budk
this is an awesome tomahawk. Ive only had it one day, but I love it already. I was throwing at a tree in my back yard the spike sticks almost every time but the axe blade on the front dose not. Im only 13 and this is my first tomahawk and its fun to throw and chop old fire wood(that I throw at now). I have a green browning knife that is for zombie killing but so far i like the hawk much much more. Thanks Budk i plan on buying more things.
Great I love it. I did buy it with the para cord you can never have enough para cord. I had a black leather boot lace that I used for wrapping the handle for a grip, standard on end through the hole and straight up the handle and the other end wrapping over under the straight piece until the end then just slipped the tag under the last wrap pulled it with pliers tight and sniped off extra fantastic grip that doesn't move after a lot of use that's why they use leather. wrap it wet if you want it tighter. then I sharpened it with a tool sharpener with a finger guard I got from home depot budk should have it cheaper. It gave it a steeper angle on the blade maybe 25% from the factory 30-35% cuts better and looks cooler and I sharped the beard for the looks. I have two one hanging on the mantle as a conversation piece and the other is working fun scuffed up version. I got the high vis green easy to find when throwing or setting down in rough ground when working.
I have two of them. This one and the M-48 RANGER HAWK. BOTH ARE GREAT. I WIIL BE ORDERING MORE SOON.
wow! it is boss it will jack up a zombie so easy. I love budk for tomahawks i think it comes with a compass it ciomes with paracord for a survival situation i love survival it so sharp i need it budk thank you just lower the price a little bestr thing ever so sharp if you are looking for a tomahawk i recomend this one check it out
I broke my first 1 but I think cause it was loose an i was missing ie. i sux. i have only used it so far 4 throwing at plywood.But no problems bud k is awesome an gave me a new 1.. 1 week later did my home work on how to throw tks u tube.im landing every throw deep penatration with the spike a little lock tight on the screws so it dosent loosen ever an this thing is a champ I love it worth every penny thanks bud k..
This was the BEST! the tomahawk chops wood well and very durable for throwing at trees.this was the best gift i ever got. i would recomend this to everyone. i just got it today and i tested it right away. it is totally worth the 40 dollars.
I love my new tomahawk. It throws great, looks awesome and, is fun. they have the best customer service and fast shipping.
all i can say is just wow this thing is great it very versitile and fun to throw. the sheath is not what it should be but its the tomahawk that is worth it. and is a great peace for any zombie weapon collector. the wrapping does come loose after just a few throws but is an easy fix, never the less its a great weapon
Great weapon, sturdy, sharp, and generally solid and well built. have given it some light use and no issues thus far.
This is a great thrower. It Sticks very well from axe or spike end. My only complaints are the same as everybody else. The handle had to be rewrapped after 5 throws. The sheath is less than serviceable. If they would offer a better sheath to be bought seperately, it would be bought by everyone who owns this axe. Whoever does quality control needs to spend more time looking at the wrapping job. Why bother if it falls off right off the bat. If it wasn't for the sheath I would have gave it 5 stars.
I've never really been a Tomahawk kind of guy in fact this is my first tomahawk I bought I bought it because it's my color green so to get started im a thin guy to put this on your belt I had to take the sheath of to put it the and then put the tomahawk in not to hard but something I was disapointed in I saw videos on youtube of people using this to break open the top of a car and no damage to the tomahawk so I tried a metal barrel so after I broke the barrel I had to re sharpen the tip <br />So in the end it's pretty good just don't use it everyday for the rest of your life
This tomahawk flies true and commands respect. It's one of the sharpest tomahawks I own. I got three for my son, future son in law and myself for xmas. They take a beating and still hit the target. I would definitely recommend one for any tomahawk enthusiast. Thanx Budk!! Mayhem
Throws nothing like the ronin, however once you get good at it this weapon is ultra lethal. And it's beyond durable I chopped a brick in half! However the chord comes off after 5 min of throwing. They need like a tennis racket grip or something.
I recently purchased this tomahawk,& just like everything ive purchased from BUDK its top quality. great item & even OBAMA hasn't tried to ban this great weapon !
I recently purchased this. I was impressed when i open the box it came it. i went outside to see how well it was build and hitting a piece of wood it chipped the tip the first day. i dont see how it can go through a car, if it cant go through wood. i was however able to stab copper and it made a perfect hole before the wood made it chip. its not as good as i had hoped for, my other one is much better and cost a lot less, but i say its a good starter one but thats about it.
Absolutely Fantastic - BUY THIS Although the paracord handle came off very quickly, I could rewrap it very easily and havent had problems since. Im a brand new thrower and it worked great. I chopped wood as well and it works very well for multi-use. Very Sturdy. Blade and spike werent very sharp but the spike goes into anything with almost no force. Throwing with the blade was rather difficult because the blade wasnt sharp but with a strong good throw it worked fine. I will for sure get it sharpened but other than the handle and dullness it was fantastic
This thing is perfect! For the price you pay what you get is probably the best tomahawk I've ever held. It has a great balance and feels natural to use and swing around. The color is pretty cool too if you like the Zombie green. All in all I'd say for the price it would be a 5/5.
+1 for True Swords. its my favorite colors, its a sick blade, and it has a really nice grip. i cant wait to start chopping stuff and trowing it. this is my upgrade from a 20 year old hatchet. it seems very stable and able to take a beating. straight to th
I just got this and i love it. it has a nice weight and size so i can tell how many rotations it makes. Also when you throw it, it whistles for each rotation. i would take the cord off though. this is my best purchase yet.
This is a great product. Just got it for Christmas today and i'm very happy with it. I took it outside and threw it a few times. It throws very smoothly and nice. The paracord doesn't come loose like some say. The blade is sharp enough out of the box but could use some work.
I don't know what's with the other reviews but not only sharp but it cuts paper cord was very tight and the point was even sharp. others get a grip
the paracord came off within minuets but was easy to rewrap a different way. Not razor sharp or even knife sharp, its more like machete sharp. i love this thing so much i think ill get another to put in my go bag or to just have a spare if they ever stop makeing them.
It looks and feels nice, but the blade isn't that sharp and the spike is dull, kind of a disappointment but i suppose it can be used for something.
This is my second order with you. Your products and service exceed any other I have ever dealt with. My boys are gonna be so happy this christmas!!!
this thing is awesome it came very sharp and it looks bad a**...i used a grinder and grinded the blade and the spike and its even more sharper. if i could rate this a 10 i would rate it 10
This Hawk is GREAT!!! I just got it yesterday and ive already annihilated a 4' by 3' box! It throws great, chops and stabs great and just looks AWESOME! The only problem is that the wrapping gets loose easy, but that's an easy fix.
just got this tomahawk today after debating on it for a while and i have to say im VERY VERY impressed. it is the most sturdy feeling synthetic tomahawk handle ive ever felt and the head is amazing and well balanced. if your looking for the best survival/fighting tomahawk look no further
awesome great tomahawk it is solid and will not break the only problem is the paracord rap started ro come undone but other than that it can servive the zombie apocalypse with you.
You will love this tomahawk, don't even question it. It comes razor sharp, perfectly balanced, and it has an awesome sheath. GET IT!
great tool for almost anything. good with throwing, very durable. love the green color, handle hold up much better than i thought, paracord wrap isnt perfect but does make a good grip till it falls off.
This tomahawk is very nice, strong, and has a sick look. I'm glad I bought it just because its a great tool to have in many situations.
This tomahawk is just simply mind-blowing. The paint job and logos are easy to see and there is no ware on the axe. I was able to split a piece of 1" thick wood in half with a light strike from the sharp end. The blade came out of the box pretty sharp; although you can always make things a little sharper. I am very pleased with this weapon and I recommend 100% to anyone interested in buying this.
This hawk, is incredible to say the least. when i first opened the box, i didnt want to use it cuz it was so beautiful, but then i realized that i just HAD to field test it! and i wasnt dissapointed. went threw anything i put it against, with ease. BUY ONE NOW! if not one, then two!!
I bought this thinking it would be all hype due to the name.. I was wrong.. if there is any one tool to help you through the apocalypse..this is it. I could not believe how easy it is to throw, how much chopping power it has, and how much grip you actually have. Its worth its weight in gold.
This thing looks AWESOME. I'm gonna get it but first I have to sell my old iPod. I wanna kill some d*** zombies!!!
I'm looking forward to buying this tomahawk. I've seen videos and read reviews about this fine piece of weaponry and It is an outstanding tool. Going order it tomorrow and then hoping to receive it soon after.
I know someone who has this and I'm working on getting the money to buy this but it is a very good defense weapon i love it gonna be good for zombies its gonna be fun to chop up a dead meat freak cant wait
I wish I could get this awsome tomahawk but I am unfortunately out of money so I can't I need something new to add to my collection. I have 17 knives a throwing knife throwing stars and a sword. I would like a tomahawk now
