Brief History the Tactical Knife:
A fighting knife is a knife with a blade designed to most effectively inflict a lethal injury in a physical confrontation between two or more individuals at very short range (grappling distance).The combat knife and the trench knife are examples of military fighting knives.
Fighting knives were traditionally designed as special-purpose weapons, intended primarily if not solely for use in personal or hand-to-hand combat. This singularity of purpose originally distinguished the fighting knife from the field knife, fighting utility knife, or in modern usage, the tactical knife. The tactical knife is a knife with one or more military features designed for use in extreme situations, which may or may not include a design capability as a fighting or combat weapon.
A tomahawk is a type of single-handed axe from North America, traditionally resembling a hatchet with a straight shaft. The name came into the English language in the 17th century as an adaptation of the Powhatan (Virginian Algonquian) word. Tomahawks were general-purpose tools used by Native Americans and later the European colonials with whom they traded, and often employed as a hand-to-hand or a thrown weapon
In modern use for military and law enforcement tomahawks are used as a modular entry tool to assist in breaching doors and or used in hand-to-hand combat.
Tactical Hawks have a different design for example the Urban Tactical “Urban Menace” Tactical Hawk. The head design allows for better Penetration then a regular hawk and the different edges can be useful in combat and utility applications. The handle design is what makes it really work, this handle has a curve to make the head bite differently and it makes it easier to flow with the weapon for tactical fighting applications .
