War Chief tactical tomahawk with sheath-making video

I had a customer who lives nearby come to the shop today and watch as his tomahawk's sheath was made.  He ordered a 12" War Chief (combat spike) in black, with a sheath.  He also brought tasty breakfast tacos!  :)

 
 1/4" 4140 steel, canvas Micarta handles, flared stainless tube rivets.


The sheath is Kydex, bottom-eject, ambidextrous, MOLLE-compatible, jump-ready with multiple carry options.

He chose to add a quick-detach double adjustable shoulder strap and IWB bands.


 

And here's how I built the sheath.  I had templates waterjet cut to build the Kydex molding forms, lay out holes and slots, and trim the overall outline.  Still takes time, but the results are consistent and work well.  I'll do another video in the future showing the sheath's various carry options.



 

 

Four more 'hawks waiting on sheaths and sharpening, then on to the next batch!

  1. That's an awesome carry system; good video on how it's made & put together! Bill

  2. This is the Hawk system I want but with the 18" handle. Everything else I want the same with all the edges sharpened that are applicable. Please tell me what my total cost will be.
