American Tomahawk Info
'Proudly made in the U.S.A.'
Unless you're in a combat zone with U.S. Soldiers or about to breach an entry with Federal Law Enforcement, you normally don't see them. Most of the time, they're modestly stowed in kit bags or rucksacks until needed. When unsheathed however, they are decisive…powerful…and unforgettable. American Tomahawk's tactical axes are accessible from more LBVs, military vehicles, police car trunks, and breach sets than any other manufacturer's axe, period.
This hard earned reputation came from producing indestructible tools of almost mysterious light weight. Peter LaGana founded the American Tomahawk Company in 1966 with the original Vietnam Tomahawk design. Sporting a wood handle and a uniquely designed axe head, nearly 4000 Vietnam Tomahawks served Soldiers and Marines in the jungles of Southeast Asia. Today, American Tomahawk pays homage to its history by combining proven designs with modern materials. The resulting performance gains make our products indispensable to those who go into harm's way.
The versatility of our Tomahawks is limited only by the user's imagination. They're light and fast. We make them so you can't break them. Do your job and do it well. American Tomahawk won't fail you. Expect nothing less.
American Tomahawk Company (ATC) is a US-based company that was founded in 1966 by Peter LaGana.

American Tomahawk Company's primary manufacturing is for the U.S. Army.
