Assassin Creed 3 Tomahawk Conners Indian Hatchet Ratonhnhake Axe Replica

To my surprise, when I pulled this hefty tomahawk axe out of it's packaging and held it for the first time, it actually feels heavy and expensive. On the hardwood handle I could feel the soft, fuzzy suede leather grip, and it is 100% real natural leather suede! I quickly checked the game out Assassins Creed 3 and took a hard look at the Tomahawk there because this things feels too good to be just a replica. I could see the overlapping polygon insignia on the wooden handle, the feather tassel, leather rope wrapping at the bit (a bit is an axe blade), and the iconic steel shape of the axe bit with the nearly triangle cutout. This is the real deal, heavy-duty replica, and it feels like you could really knock some heads with it.

Pros: Cons:
  • Display stand requires some assembly.
  • Sharpening the bit might scratch the nice finish.
  • Thick Stainless Steel Axe Bit.
  • Actual Bird Feather Tassel.
  • Difficult to sharpen
  • Very Tight-fitting Scabbard
  • Axe bit is heavier than expected.


Assassin Creed 3 Tomahawk Conners Indian Hatchet Ratonhnhake Axe Replica Point the axe bit down with the spike side up and it looks like the Assassin Insignia from the Assassins Creed game, originally belonging to John de la Tour, the first Assassin of the new world. Conner used this axe to crack skulls and accomplish his tasks throughout the journey. Often you may have noticed Ratonhnaketon used this axe in dual-wield fashion with the Hidden Blade. When fighting in a parkour close range style, a Tomahawk was much faster and more devastating than a muzzle-loading musket.





2 CONSTRUCTION

While this is indeed an accurate replica, it is built solid like a rock. The particular size of the handle and overall feel seems to fit for single-handed smashing or possibly for throwing. However, using something this nice is probably not recommended by the manufacturer. The materials used to construct the axe are all top-grade, and a lot of it is used. For example, the axe bit is massively thick at 12.5mm, and has a lot of mass to it making it the heaviest and most authentic replica available. It has a wooden peg holding the blade and handle shaft together. This shaft is made with 100% hardwood with a polyurethane and smooth-sanded finish. This handle is so thick and hard that you would think it was made to break bones.

I like how the real suede leather handle wrap is tightly spun around the pole shaft and uses two brass rivets on each end. This ensures the handle grip is reliable and long lasting. You know when this Assassins Creed Tomahawk is sitting there on it's hardwood display stand your friends and family will want to pick it up and feel the comfy suede, it will always stay and never slide around. Midway on the hardwood shaft lies a tassel held on with a solid brass pin at the top of the soft suede grip. This unique tassel features 3 wooden beads and a genuine bird's feather. The feather is nice and soft and came from a wild bird, just like in the game, just as an American Indian would have constructed it. The hardwood display stand is built very sturdy with dovetail joints and has carved into the front "Assassins Creed".
