CRKT T Hawk Chogan Axe is a useful tool of the professional trade; to have one is to know and appreciate its true worth in the field…especially ones this good. Tomahawks have been a mainstay of utility in the military for a long time. From manual utility tasks to self-defense fighting tools, they have carved out a unique place in many a tactical gear bag.
Designer Ryan Johnson has been honing his tactical tomahawk designs over the last 30 years and has earned a dedicated and loyal fan base, particularly among special forces troops. His Chogan T Hawk is shaped of single-piece steel with a curved handle and grip choils along the front for enhanced holding power.
Full-length handle scales are checkered for added grip security, and can be removed for cleaning. The Chogan model offers a distinctive hammer head style, which both provide exceptional utility and toughness. Molle equipped, form-fitting Kydex sheaths slip over the head and secure with a buckled strap. You will find the T Hawks very well balanced and easily controlled, while still being robust enough to handle most anything dished out.

Excellent survival axe

I bought this and the Spiderco Szabo Hawk hand axe. For me the Chogan T-Hawk was the answer to a packable, multi-function survival axe. It is well designed, the right weight and size, and quite ergonomically designed, especially the handle. The sheath is well thought out – securely protecting the blade and providing a variety of ways to secure and carry the tool. The axe appears to be ruggedly built and after I have put it to some use in the backcountry I will report back as to its full utility and how well it holds up under use. Initially very pleased with this purchase though (and the price)! Picture is a side by side comparison of the Szabo and the Chogan
Get the Kangee, instead!

Best tactical tomahawk. Like ever. Seriously. Update/warning 5/17/2017 ( sheath issue)
One person found this helpful.
UPDATE: I’ve been using this regularly as a woods tool and am still super impressed with it on that front but discovered recently a major flaw in the sheath system: you can damage or dent badly the edge if you pull this out a certain way and are yanking really hard on it, if you pull straight down or axe edge first the edge will hit the bottom rivet in the sheath, the damage on mine, while minor and fixable on a stone, did occur in the same spot shown in the pics on the other reviews here. You should pull it out spike first, kinda rotating the handle forward but that’s not easy to remember when under pressure, like in a tactical situation and your trying to get it out asap. It’s still a great axe, until this a hadn’t even needed to sharpen it after half a dozen woods trips, so just be aware of this issue and careful of how you pull it out, you’ll see exactly what I mean once you get it.
Well worth the price tag, well balanced, powerful hawk.

When I first saw this Hawk i thought the 3 position handle was just downright dumb. As soon as i picked it up, my handle naturally fell to the middle position. It’s great to choke up on for detail work or drop back for a power swing as well.
This is THE One!

Folks, I own a few T-Hawks, from SOG to Cold Steel. Non of the previously mentioned ones feel as good as the CRKT, out-of-the-box. The SOG’s bussiness end is stout and well-designed but the straight, synthetic handle combination does not make it feel balanced and does not inspire grip confidence in a full-swing. The sog also feels heavy/bulky compared to the Kangee. But put a tennis racket grip on the SOG and it will be formidable. The Cold Steel wooden-handled hawks are right-on for the money, but will take some work to make them functional and zombie-ready. So I read the reviews on the CRKT and decided to take a chance. Folks, for the money, this is THE one, PERIOD!! Out-of-the-box, it feels well balanced and the ergonomically curved handle puts no strain on the wrist no matter how it’s gripped. Normally, synthetic handles are slippery, but not this puppy. The cuts/facets in the finish give it a great grippy feeling. Really, all you need to do is put a lanyard on it, adjust the super-well designed/made kydex sheeth for your style of carry and away you go! As a bonus, I believe that the Kangee is the only T-Hawk sharpened on 3-sides? For the reviewer who stated the handle broke early on his, I can’t imagine how that would happen, unless it was a result of throwing? I agree with the special forces gent who doesn’t believe in throwing your Hawk because you just gave away your weapon not to mention what could happen to your handle if impacting a rock? The full-tang construction gives you that super-solid feel and the impression this “tool” will last you a lifetime and then some! I also agree that this hawk would fit the bill as your EDC when going out in the woods on hiking or hunting excursions. Caution – Like the martial artist reviewer says, “It’s razor sharp out-of-the-box” and needs to be thoroughly respected when handling or practicing your moves with it. In summary, the Kangee is out-of-the-box super solid, super sharp, ergonomically comfortable, just the right weight/balance and just the right size for everyday carry. The kydex sheath is well-made, well designed for multiple carry options and just plain, spot-on! From taking on the camping chores, dressing game or putting zombies out of their misery, this ‘Hawk can do it all and will not dissappoint! Oh yeah, and I’ve already ordered the Chogan (hammer head version). Pair this with the CRKT, Chance-in-Hell machete, add your favorite skinning knife and you’ve got the BEST combination of outdoor tools for all your outdoor cutting needs! This is a keeper, out-of-the-box ready and one that will be there when you need it most to serve you well all the days (& nights) of your outdoor lives!
Don’t look any further. You want this hawk.

The package arrived a day earlier than expected and was in perfect condition. The sheath and tomahawk were in mint shape. The tomahawk was very sharp out of the packaging and well oiled. All four edges were sharp to the touch, especially the spike end. The hardware was well secured and ready to rock out the box. I did some wood shaving and light chopping with it, and I’m here to tell you, this thing has surprising finesse coupled with raw power. The handles grip well even with bare hands. The diamond texture pattern and ergonomics of the handle provide excellent grip even in wet conditions. Gloves lock down absolute grip. The sheath retains fairly well without the buckle clasp but I highly recommend locking up if you’re mobile. This thing is no toy and can cause serious harm weather in the hand or not.
Sweet, multi purpose ‘hawk.

This little guy! I’m a lady who likes a lightweight (without being cheap) tool like this. Full tang, good steel, ergonomic, handle has grip without biting into your (ungloved) hand. To be honest, I don’t ever see myself using the little strap that came with it; but I threw it in the junk drawer, because hey, who knows?! The Kangee is perfect for camping & hiking or self defense (chop, chop sucka). I’m on the petite side (5’3″), and I find it very easy to handle, weighted nicely. Big fan! *Top is bladed, but I felt it needed to be sharpened.
