Gerber Downrange Tomahawk Axe

The Gerber Downrange Tomahawk GE30-000792 is an modern take on an amazing ancient weapon. The Gerber Downrange Axe head cuts through walls and rope while the hammer head is the perfect size for smashing through obstacles like hinges, door knobs and locking devices. A hefty pry at the end of the Gerber Downrange Tomahawk Axe can be employed confidently with a cutaway handle in the axe head to allow for maximum leverage during a breach. The Gerber Downrange Axe has Desert Tan G-10 scales that mount the 420HC steel with KG gun cote.

I had a couple different tomahawks, many had handles too short. This handle length feels just about right for me. The hammer feature is a great and allows me to take the claw hammer out of my tool bag. The hard plastic sheath will protect the blade from dings and has a snap strap fastener. I also just like Gerber products, epically their multi tools. A couple cons I need to mention, the handle is thin and need some girth for a comfortable grip. I wrapped it with some tan 550 cord from the bottom half down. To give some additional chopping leverage I wrapped it to just about 2 in above the end of the pry bar. The axe head has a dull edge but will split 2x4 easily to make kindling for the fire but I think it will and sharp edge to cut rope or chop downed trees. I think the plastic handle panels runs up a little hi, when chopping 2x4's the split wood hits it. Lastly the molle sheath that it comes with is useless in my opinion, fortunately I have some plans to make a custom carrier to fit my needs.
