So, took a tomahawk out the other day to do some chopping (clean up) at our local club. Seemed to be going ok, but it looked like I was wrong! ... So, in your opinion: 1. Bad heat treatment? 2. Poor grind that I put on it (ie too narrow)? 3. Poor technique? Interested in your thoughts. I have since hammered it back down and reground the edge back to where it was (I hope) ...and yes, I probably hit a couple of nails in my initial chopping, but the bigger "roll" seemed to me to be more like hitting a knot - and I really didn't expect that result. I think its (1) .. so I guess I'm going to have to heat and quench it myself during the summer. Joe.
