American Tomahawk carries on the legacy of Pete Lagana - World War II Marine Corps veteran - and is currently owned and operated by Ryan Johnson and Richard Carmack of RMJ USA, Jeff Kirkham of READYMAN and John Hickman, speed-thinker extraordinaire. Technically a group of incredibly skilled outdoorsmen capable of surviving for years with nothing more than their Tomahawk and a blade of grass. We could go into a long dissertation of military backgrounds, capabilities, achievements and good ‘ole American stories that will ignite your patriotism, however, suffice it to say that these men are determined to create one of the singularly most reliable and affordable multi-use tools you might need; for wherever your adventure might take you. We love multipurpose tools, and Graz fits that role in a lot of ways. Tons of design time went into creating a four-finger meat tenderizer, napkin holder, paperweight, forehead scratcher. We wrapped all of those features up in 9.2 ounces of old school brass.
Instead of machining Graz, we decided that Investment Casting was a cool way to go. Investment casting, also known as lost-wax casting is one of the oldest known metal forming techniques, Investment casting has been used in various forms for the last 5,000 years. So, they have street cred and a certain old school character that you can't get with machining.
These aren't for carrying around, they are a kitchen utensil. Don't do dumb stuff and break laws. Texas and a growing number of states don't mind if you slip them in your back pocket, and some states will issue a permit for such a crazy idea. Do yourself a favor and research it for your locality so you don't make us say "we told you so!"
Due to the hand-finished nature, each Graz patina and finish will vary slightly from piece to piece.
