Real TOMAHAWK Combat!..from historical accounts

https://youtu.be/or0AoV1NQt8

Here is the description:
Looking at real historical period accounts of combat involving tomahawks, both Native American and European. Featured tomahawks and axes from Ravensbeak Forge, Condor and Thor's Forge.

The video is long at 53 mins., but I think that many here will find the accounts interesting.

For those who want to learn more about tomahawk fighting, the video The Fighting Tomahawk, by Col. Dwight Mclemore (known for his books on the Bowie knife) as well as the books The Fighting Tomahawk vols. I and II, are excellent resources.

The Fighting Tomahawk DVD series by Cold Steel is also excellent.

Unfortunately, you'll have to try and find them on the secondary market.
