Why Buy Our 16" Hickory Handle?
100% Guaranteed Against Manufacturers Defects
All HatchetsandAxes.com products are 100% guaranteed against manufacturers defects. While most of our tomahawk heads are hand forged, and our professional blacksmiths inspect each product to ensure they are free of defects, occasionally a defect will pass through quality control due to the hand crafted nature of our products. If you should receive a product with any defect such as cracking we will replace it for you free of charge.
Wax Coated Tomahawk Handles
Each handle is carefully coated with beeswax in order to ensure a secure grip and reliable protection. Our handles come sanded smooth, splinter free and this wax coating makes for an amazing grip (even when your handle gets wet). Be sure to check out our upgraded handles which feature the same great straight grain hickory but come in a beautiful walnut stain (and then coated with wax).
NMLRA Approved Hawks
NMLRA stands for the National Muzzle-Loading & Rifle Association. HatchetsandAxes.com is a proud support of the NMLRA as well as provider of throwing tomahawks that follow the specific regulations of the NMLRA hawk throwing rules.
High Carbon Steel Blade
Each blade is hand forged from high carbon steel. The steel we have chosen has been selected as a result of diligent testing and ensure strength, durability, and long term reliability. Due to the nature of steel, each head will come with a light protective coating to prevent rusting.
Straight Grain USA Made Hickory Handles
All our throwing tomahawks come standard with 100% USA made straight grain hickory. We get our wood from the world famous Appalachian mountains and hand selected hickory. These handles are built to last and have proven themselves as a great combination of affordability and reliability.
Sharpened Blade Edges
Each blade is sharpened to ensure maximum penetration under current NMLRA rules and regulations. These blades are not designed to be extremely sharp (like the type you shave with). Our blade edges are far from dull, but they are sharpened only enough to hold a sharp enough edge for typical cutting & throwing scenarios.
Hand Forged Head
HatchetsandAxes.com has professional blacksmiths that produce all of our tomahawks and axes. Our forge is dedicated to producing top quality products. In our case, hand forging results in the most durable, long lasting and highest quality products. Yeah, it's a more traditional approach, we know that. But we stick with it when other companies try and cut corners and drop forge their products.

About The American Hickory Wood Handles
You know what they say about Hickory right? It is "time tested and logger approved"! American Hickory is the most sought after wood material to use for your axes and tomahawks. All the premium Swedish and German axe makers import American Hickory for their handles and proudly advertise it. We selected Hickory because it will take more abuse than maple or birch or ash. And on top of that, it is much more affordable.
Basic Facts of American Hickory
- Hickory Is Ergonomically Better For Comfort And Stress Reduction
- Hickory logs produce the best handles and are selected for their heavy weight, and straight grain.
- The U.S. Forest Products Lab has found no difference in white or red hickory's strength. Therefore, the best hickory handles may be white, red or a mixture of both.
- Hickory is a natural shock absorber and has excellent strength for tool handles.
Why Straight Grained Wood?
Grain refers to the direction of the "veins" of the wood. Wood will split easier if you are cutting in the direction of the grain. When chopping wood you try to cut along the grain to split the wood. If you were to use cross grain handles it just wouldn't make sense for throwing (they would break much easier). By selling only straight grain handles we are offering you the most durable handles available.
Why Wax Coated Handles?
Our handles are unique to our tomahawks. They are sanded smooth and then given a wax coating. This wax coating prolongs the life of your tomahawk handle, provides a more secure grip, and prevents splintering for an extended period.

The handle end was too narrow (the diameter of the handle was too small) and it slipped right through my tomahawk head. Entirely useless.
Couldn’t ask for better service.
Bought these for the Troop based off the reviews...now I'm wondering what the criteria was for the other reviewers. Yes, yes you can throw these like the other reviewers said so I have to agree with them on that. If you want to see results from the throw you are going to need to do a bit of work, these have a very obtuse edge, like the edge you'd put on an axe to PREVENT it from sticking...so, expect to spend some time with a grinder or belt sander or a lot of time with a file to fix the edge.
Not to harp on the edge but each tomahawk had a different geometry and that geometry changed as you traversed the edge.
Construction? it is obviously a blade welded to an eye. Fortunately you already have the tools out to fix the edge so you may as well clean up the weld splatter.
Good news, these tomahawks are made by Indians, ...from India. Not a bad thing until you realize there is a "Hickory" tree that grows in India. Make no mistake, Indian Hickory is not being used to make Louisville Sluggers for a reason...but that's what these handles are made from (i assume, it is definitely not North American Hickory). It is the weirdest, palest looking wood that even after scraping and sanding will not accept a stain and suffers a ton of damage from just the heads sliding.
To be fair, it's a Tomahawk, the boys had a blast throwing them, the handles will need frequent replacement or you'll have to find/make some decent ones and expect to do some work on the edge.
I ordered the wrong axe handle by mistake…my fault. They offered to return. I asked, twice what axe that fit the handles I purchased. Still don’t have a response.
