Hmm... alright. I guess the real reason why I want to make one of these is 'cause I really want to make something that can cut through wood, bone, and what not. I know the natives used to use tomahawks for a variety of everyday purposes, as well as warfare. Now I'm starting to wonder if there is a better tool I can make for such a task (cutting).
the axe style tomahawk that I think of, didn't come till much later, the stone aged ancients had much more time on their hands to go about doing things.
for instance, we take trees by sawing them, that's been OUR way for a long time.
the tribes of paupa new guinea have stone axes but their a far cry from the sleek efficient tomahawk that i think of. they also use fire to sort of burn the stump, to take a tree.
really i think it comes down to the ancients having alot of tools to do alot of task where we moderns have come up with one super efficient tool to do many tasks. we just dont have the time, and usually were trading the goods for X amount of "money" instead of just using the harvested goods for what we need.
i would suggest you re-analyze the basic needs of the human, shelter,fire,water,food, in that order and the asses what cutting tools you will absolutely need to accomplish these tasks. once that is solid, branch out from there, like needing a stone adze to carve out a canoe, not essential, but nice to have.
also i suggest just buying a regular steel tomahawk, because in my opinion they're awesome. the Native Americans thought very highly of them, and so do i, make sure to get one with a wide diameter loop in the back end, where you slide it up the handle, not smash it down and fix with a wedge. you never know when you may have to chuck it at a gypsy.
