TOMAHAWK

The Tomahawk is a hooking piton for use in thin seams.  It is designed primarily as a thin nailing piece, requiring the use of a hammer, but can also be hand-placed into “beak slots” or natural constrictions in thin cracks.  The design enables easier and quicker cleaning to prevent the piece from becoming fixed. 

The Tomahawk is available in three different sizes - #1, #2, and #3 - as well as three different versions: standard (straight), left, and right. The left and right versions are bent and are intended for corners.

SPECIFICATIONS (SIZE #2)

  • Material: Heat-treated 4130 chrome-moly steel, laser-cut shape.
  • Size: 120x65x4 mm
  • Top hole: 9.6 mm
  • Bottom hole: 9.9 mm
  • Cable hole: 5 mm
  • Cable: Galvanized aircraft cable clip-in loop with zinc-coated copper sleeve and color coded PVC heat-shrink covering sleeve.
  • Weight: 94.6 g 

FEATURES

  • Curved stem: The curved stem allows for greater clearance over irregularities in the rock surface and allows the “beak” to be buried deeper in bomber placements; it also allows for greater hooking potential when used in clean placements.
  • Improved hooking action: The “hooking action” of the Tomahawk is superior to that of the Pecker and Birdbeak, due to the longer, curved stem and forward positioning of the cable hole.  This greater hooking action helps the Tomahawk to stick better when hand placed and when used as more of a hook than a piton.
  • Multiple hammering surfaces: In addition to the primary hammering surface used to drive the Tomahawk into a crack (b.), there are four hammering surfaces that can be used to clean the piece – two for upward hammering (c. and e.), one for downward hammering (a.), and one for upward hammering, which through rotation, levers the blade outward (d.).
  • Larger cable hole: The cable hole allows up to 5/32″ cable (#4 head); Tomahawks are originally fitted with a small loop of 1/8″ cable (#3 head). The small loop is designed to maximize climbers’ reach.
  • Left and right versions: Tomahawks are also available in left and right versions, for use in corners. The upper bend enables better hammer contact with the primary hammering surface. during placement, and the lower bend provides clearance for the cable to prevent cable damage against the rock.  
  • Top and bottom tie-off holes: The two tie-off holes on the #1 and #2 sizes will accept a single strand of 9/16" supertape webbing or a bight (strand doubled-over) of 1/2" tie-off webbing. The two tie-off holes on the #3 size will accept a bight of 9/16" supertape webbing and the top hole on the #3 size will accept a carabiner, for horizontal placements or for racking purposes. The top hole can also be used to tie-off the Tomahawk when it is placed in a horizontal crack. READ MORE
  • Horizontal placements: Although the Tomahawk is not designed for horizontal cracks, it can be used as a last resort when you have no knifeblades or RURPs left on the rack, or when such pitons are too wide.

 CARE

  • Finish: A water-displacing dry film oil is applied to Tomahawks during manufacturing. If a surface becomes rusty, remove rust with Scotch-Brite or a fine abrasive pad.  Remove any moisture from surfaces and oil with a good water-displacing product (WD-40 or equivalent) when not in use.  Wipe off excess oil with a clean, dry cloth.  Store in a dry place.
  • Shape: Use a file to remove any burrs that result from heavy use.  DO NOT use a grinder or belt sander; this will undo the heat-treating.
