I was way impressed with Mel Gibson's usage of the tomahawk in "The Patriot". Then I saw the History channel discuss the military's usage of them today, even in Iraq. I thought about getting one, more as a collectors item from the American Tomahawk Company that apparently supplies the military, but they do seem a little costly. Does anyone have one? Been trained in how to use one? etc. I've never seen myself as a blade person, but the idea of having workable piece of "americana" does have an appeal for me. Any thoughts?
