The MT-1 Tomahawk is the the result of comprehensive usage, historical, and materials research. The culmination of the development effort is a monolithic design with familiar size, unequaled durability and strength, and critical low weight. We offer only the best performing coatings, and supply the tomahawk with an edge grind possessing a fine balance between durability and sharpness.
The US Sourced, 4140 chrome-moly tool steel used is cut entirely using a CNC mill. The steel goes through three different heat treatment processes, the critical processes performed in a computer controlled vacuum furnace. Each hawk receives many hours of smoothing and finishing by hand, its why the handle has a solid grip but is not abrasive. The final step for the MT-1 is a professional sharpening, slightly concave in geometry, and an inclusive angle known for excellent edge retention. The hawk is shipped in its protective sheath and packaged in a VCI bag to assure you get a perfect hawk.
The MT-1 is fundamentally a single piece of 4140 heat treated steel. For those that want nothing more or the opportunity to paint / coat / or modify it themselves we offer the MT-1 with no coating. To minimize corrosion, the steel is shipped in a lite coating of oil in VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) paper or plastic (depending on your choice of purchasing it with or without the MT-1 sheath). With simple care, 4140 can last a lifetime with minimal corrosion.
Whether you choose the uncoated version or DLC (the toughest coating on the market), you'll have a high quality, multi functional tool you can count on for a lifetime.
