Anyone have one of these? Do you use it for things other than cutting into cars? Opinions please
I’ve used my Shrike for fire prep and to help my buddy demo a shed. It also sits bedside for CQC (close quarters chopping). FWIW I really like mine- very comfortable and fast in the hand. Solid for the woods if you get creative, like the fact that I can dig as well as drag logs with the spike.
@JV3 has one or 5 as well, you know how he likes to buy multiples LOL.
Seem expensive for what they are
i typically use mine to make it obvious a fuel can is empty so the recycling people won't freak out. there's a lot of thought that went into the design and most of it will only be obvious if you actually hold and use one...resale value is excellent as well. everything i've seen for sale on bladeforums was sold within a matter of days even though they were still priced way high.
that spike makes for an excellent ice pick as well...makes short work of reused soda bottles to freeze water for the cooler. i'm swimming in ammo but if i ever ran out this will do the job too...much like a laser on a gun there is the psychological factor too to diffuse a situation from escalating
for strictly woods use though? h&b forge shawnee tomahawk hands down for me!
come on, man...that's because i'm running out of things to buy, haha.
@JV3 my truck needs some parts if you’re bored.
I carry one of the Shrikes in my cruiser. If I need to chop, smash, clear or break things, it will do the job. I don't bring it out into the woods as it isn't much of a tree chopper, but chopping trees isn't its mission.
Picked up a used 13” Shrike the other day. Destroyed some stuff with it today. Good times. I’m afraid though that my dad is gonna steal it. He kept carrying it around.
I used my Shrike to demo a restaurant, you shoulda seen the guys’ faces when I cut through the 208/230 MC cable that was still hot! Good thing they’re insulated!!!
I wasn’t curious about the insulation. It feels like metal. I expected a rubberized grip.
I think tomahawks , no matter the maker, are the ultimate CQC / Backup , sheer psychological terror tool.
I have the TOP IDT...and while the ax portion of it is deliberately made blunt, it still does insane damage to bricks, cinders, drywall, and windows. The pointy side is horrifically sharp.
Would love to get an RMJ in the New Year.
Pretty sure it’s just G10
Shrikes have a hard rubber overmoldd handle.
I won/purchased a Prototype Emerson Custom battle axe are Blade this year, and can’t wait for the productions to come out. I also have a jonesin’ for a Winkler Hawk.
I’d really like a RMJ hawk, especially the berserker.
I have a CRKT Chogan T-hawk that was designed by RMG, and it’s a fantastic tool in its own right.
Heavy full tang construction, and great speed and balance, can only imagine that the real deal RMJ is even better.
