    I wouldn't think anything weird about seeing someone w/ a short handle tomahawk or hatchet in a scabbard, but what about a follow up weapon if needed on a missed throw?

    Throwing the hawk is best left to the 'movies'. This is the 'serious' bad boy:

    Here in Washington, you may carry them as long as you're not carrying with an intent to intimidate others. You cannot conceal these weapons though. If you want to carry a sword, a tomahawk, or any other kind of bladed weapon, your best bet would be to carry them in a sheath, over your back.

    That only accounts for Washington. I can't speak for other states

    What the heck is that Razor, a Pakistani can opener? See below for a true Tomahawk.

    Wait a second, is this an actual fact-finding thread started by Razor? What do ya know.

    As for the question about whether I've ever carried a tomahawk in Virgina...well...what do you think?
    :celebrate



    Answer is yes, I have open-carried a tomahawk on the outside of my backpack when hiking. It is a small throwing-type hawk which I am fairly good with, and it's also a useful camp axe.

    I've carried hatchets when in a gun prohibited place. Kept them under the pillow for good luck during the evening when in the same.

    Tomahawk is just to big to carry.

    You tomahawk guys are sissies.

    Nothing beats an e-tool for a contact weapon.

    :P
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. (Because that is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--for each other and everybody else--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.)

    Equality and consent of the governed: We're all equal. How can another legitimately govern me without my express consent?

    It's a shovel, often used by the U.S. Army.

    E-tool = entrenching tool. It's a small shovel that has a folding spade on it. The military finds all kinds of innovative ways to use them...

    Could be, but it's easier to pull out a tomahawk than to break out a e-tool.

    The British were serious about e-tools as weapons. The e-tools that were issued to the British army in WWII had a attachment on the base of the handle for a spike bayonet. The only picture I've been able to find that shows that attacthment is here.

    Two pages to give Razor an actual answer to his question.

    Go here: http://www.knifelawsonline.com/knifehome/& look for your specific state.

    Speaking of sales, anybody ever seen those shop-at-home guys with deals like 200 folders in five styles plus a three-piece Samurai sword set with stand and maybe one biga$$ two-handed sword ? I love the way the one guy will slam a knife into a log full of other knives and half of them will come loose and fall out, and a couple times he has cut the %&*^ outta hisself while twirling a Samurai sword around and telling folks to "be careful". Wotta scream.
