These "Hawks have a marvelous 2 1/2" bit and excellent spike on their heads. Drop forged from 1055 Carbon Steel in Rockford Il, these bad boys should last the rest of my life. The traditional Estwing Nylon/Rubber handle that is also found on their hammers and hatchets absorbs 70+% of the vibration transmitted from striking the "work object".
The Estwing Black Eagle has a "lightening hole" on the bit that doesn't compromise the integrity of the tool and permits changing the direction of the stroke during mid-swing. These are just as efficient as the original Peter Lagana design used by our troops in Southeast Asia.
I'm glad I bought these self-defense (tactical)/breaching tools. At $35.78 for each 'Hawk shipped to my door, they are more than worth the "price of admission".
I highly recommend them
