Monday Book Pick: The Fighting Tomahawk

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

The Fighting Tomahawk by Dwight C. McLemore.

Dispite its European origins, the tomahawk is considered a uniquely American weapon. This is an interesting look at the use of tomhawk, and long knife, in practical combat terms. It is interesting that the author emphasizes the reverse grip for the knife. I’m not a big fan of the reverse knife grip for combat, but I can see how it is useful in blocking when the tomahawk is the primary offensive weapon.
