New for 2013, Gerber’s Made in the USA Downrange Tomahawk. I took a couple of quick photos of the Tomahawk and their new Rescue Axe at SOFIC. The Downrange Tomahawk sports an axe face with a hammer head at its rear. The handle is full tang and has a pry bar at the lower end. Finger grooves in the head of the axe allow the user to get leverage to force the pry bar into jambs and seams.
The steel for the Downrange Tomahawk is 420HC. It is blackened with KG Gun Kote. Desert Tan G-10 handle scales are bolted on. The Tomahawk is 19.27″ overall and weighs in at 1.90 lbs. without the sheath and 2.25 lbs. with the sheath.
MSRP on this bad boy is $285.00, so expect to find it for 40-50% lower than that. I’m jazzed that it is Made in Portland, Oregon.
