A tomahawk is a type of single-handed axe – you’ll use a specially-designed throwing tomahawk, small hawk or throwing angel for this adventure. They’re made for throwing, so they’re different from conventional axes and felling axes.

You’ll throw the tomahawk at a target from a distance, trying to get it to hit the target and stick into the wood.

Once you’ve felt the thrill of watching a tomahawk you’ve thrown spin through the air, you’ll want to try again, and again, and again. You might not hit the target (and hear that satisfying thud) first time, but stick at it, and you’ll get there in the end.

Sticking at it is one of the most important parts of tomahawk throwing. Patience and practise are the keys to perfecting your accuracy and being successful.
