This is how to throw a tomahawk the right way.

Step 1: Your Stance

Stand with your feet about 2 feet apart . The right foot a little more forward than the left.

Step 2: How to Aim

Look across the top of the handle. Then line it up as best as you can with the center of your target.

Step 3: Throwing It

Now pull back keeping it straight. Then swing, releasing when you reach the spot where you aimed it

Step 4: Now One More Thing

Last step. I promise. The last thing you have to do is get a bullseye. And congrats. You will have mastered the Tomahawk.

<p>Very interesting! </p><p>How do you time the spin so it always hits blade-first? </p>
<p>Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is a combination of how hard you throw, and how close you are to the target. Once you have the muscle memory of how heavy your Tomahawk is you should have a feel for how fast it will rotate. That timing will change once you get closer or farther. One tip I was taught was to start at a set distance and throw it with the same force every time. If your blade is not hitting first, take a step forward or a step back. You will soon find the spot where it hits blade first every time.</p>
<p>we threw at 10, 20, and 40 feet from target. You are right about the step up or back to get the rotation correct. </p>
<p>this is how the group I threw with does it...if the tomahawk is too large for you to throw with one hand maybe you need a mousehawk... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1GQFR0_OFQ</p>
uhhmmm...I don't think that you really want to throw your tomahawk BEFORE you find your bullseye... that is, unless maybe you have another target in mind??? ;)
<p>What do you mean? I explained how to aim.</p>
<p>Looks neat!</p>
Nice choice of hawk I also own the cold steel norse hawk
