How do you know this is a quality tactical axe? Because this axe sets the standard for tactical axes. The United States military has been using the LaGana Vietnam Tactical Tomahawk since the Vietnam War. Since modernized, it’s created from a solid piece of 01 carbon steel. The slight oval shape and diamond tread plate of the handle makes it well balanced and easy to grip. And of course we’re proud to say that the LaGana Vietnam Tactical Tomahawk is made right here in the USA.
