While I do not think it a sound "tactical" practice,I have had a lot of fun throwing tomahawks at a cottonwood slab.

In my experience,the buckskinner type tomahawk makes a good,practical light hatchet.It will do small campfire kindling,light shelter work,and some dressing tasks.I don't spend a lot of time pondering brawling with a tomahawk,and have zero experience with that,so,nothing to say.

Another option for a tool is to cut a GI machete to 12 or 14 in,or so.You can put a tanto point on it,or a reverse tanto.It will do about the same jobs as the tomahawk,and carry about the same
