Tomahawk-throwing contests are about crushing your opponents on every level. Here’s a roundup of today’s fresh styles that’ll help you humiliate the competition.
RAGE YOUR ANTHEM
Your competitors can’t throw a tomahawk with an unsteady hand. Make them tremble in fear as you rock the woods with the sounds of Survivor.
BRING A QUIVER
Only amateurs show up to a throwing axe competition with just one throwing axe. (Pro Tip: Leave room for a handle of whiskey.)
A light axe enables faster, more agile throws, like the mid-air flip-throw and the “watch me hit that moving branch” throw.
Get yourself a tomahawk based on the ones used in Nam then show those hippies how to use it.
SMASH YOUR TARGET TO PIECES
Bring at least one showpiece tomahawk bad enough to bring down a bison. The fact that you own it will set their nerves on edge.
WHIP OFF YOUR WOOD
Wood-framed shades make you seem at peace with all things in the forest—until you whip them off, ready to burn the competition to the ground.
BEAR YOUR CHEST
To win a tomahawk-throwing contest, you must first unleash your inner beast.
STRETCH IT OUT
It’s a long walk back to the throwin’ line. Wear pants that can sustain a big strut.
AXE NOTHING OF THEM
Bring your own hoodie to keep your hands and arms warm. Up the intimidation level by rocking one with double-axes on the breast.
WEAR NINJA SHOES
Running footwear with a grippy sole will keep you from slipping up and sending a tomahawk through your tent.
PSYCHE ‘EM OUT
They’re mid-throw. Suddenly: Dueling banjos (ukulele version). Toss in a death-stare and they’ll crumple before you.
