Your Favorite Tool / Weapon

My favorite tool / weapon is the tomahawk.

I started using a US vietnam tomahawk back in the mid 90's and found out how useful they are in the Bush, chopping,slicing,throwing,hammering and so on. Now a friend showed me his CQC-T Tomahawk a couple of years ago and that thing is the best tomahawk I have ever held.

My favorite tool that may function as a weapon is a knife.
