Beowulf, the epic poem of a legendary warrior hunting down and killing the monster that’s terrorizing his people was written something like 1,000 years ago — making it perhaps the oldest surviving story written in Old English. Yet this monumentally important tale is still inspiring people today, including the geniuses behind the PDX SPD x Wenger Blades Beohawk Axe.
Thankfully, the name is more than just bombast, as this tomahawk is certainly worthy of being carried by its mythic namesake. This is thanks largely to its superb construction of a combination of Caswell black oxide-finished 80CrV2 tool steel and its textured OD green micarta handle. Perfect for hacking, chopping, and even hammering, the Beohawk also features a 550 paracord wrap, giving it even more versatility for outdoor and survival situations, too. Individually custom handmade by Dave Wenger, exclusively for Prometheus Design Werx, this Special Projects Division hatchet can be yours for $495.
