A SECOND CHANCE... AT AWESOMENESS!
https://s9.postimg.org/authdmtov/IMG_7804.jpg


## <center>Sometimes in life, it is hard not to give something a second chance.</center>

-------------
I know that many people would simply give up on broken or damaged items, but I prefer to try to still find purpose and use in things, even if they would be thrown away by others. In fact, sometimes I will even repurpose things that *were* thrown away by others.

Some time ago, I bought some tomahawks from a catalog for throwing. The handles were pretty cheaply made, and were not exactly the finest craftsmanship available, which was probably reflected by the price I paid as well.

### <center>Anyway, what options did I have when the handle broke off of one?</center>

https://img1.steemit.com/0x0/http://i.imgur.com/uVNBbyL.jpg

I could have just trashed the whole thing, but instead I decided to see if it would still work. Throwing tomahawks is pretty awesome, so I didn’t want to give up on the potential awesomeness of this, even though it was broken. Could I just throw the head of the tomahawk without a handle? Well, there is only one way to find out.

https://s24.postimg.org/dftmvsq2t/IMG_7812.jpg

To start, I made sure to put a sharp edge on the blade. With would increase the chances of this tomahawk head being awesome.

Next, I had to make a target. A few short cedar logs did the trick.

## <center>What happened next was indeed awesome!</center>

### <center>An Awesome Video!</center>

Time and time again, I would miss… but then time and time again I figured out how to throw it! I even almost hit the bullseye.

----------------------
# <center>MY POCKET *PROTECTOR*</center>
https://s18.postimg.org/tzdt3gzbt/IMG_7872.jpg

Now, I have an excellent throwing weapon that I can carry in my pocket. There is no long, bulky handle to deal with, and the remaining head fits well into my jacket pocket or a rear pocket of my jeans. 

-----------------
### <center>Another Awesome Video!</center>

I know that these days there is not a high demand for being able to defend yourself by throwing tomahawk heads, but, it’s still nice to have that potential, just to be a little more awesome.

### I was thinking about that... it works good in my jacket pocket though.

Be careful if papa has a jacket on...

just be careful if you use the front pockets of your jeans. Then there would be no more little peppers. You might be able to use them as wedges when you start splitting the long timber for house additions. 🍺

Those Arkansas deer better watch out! Or maybe the squirrels, since they just lay flat on the tree branch even when you do a wind-up for a throw. Happy tomahawk hurling!

Awesome!
Looks like I'm not the only 😜 on Steemit!
🤝   🤜🤛
I've lined one half of a garage wall 8 inches thick with cardboard; in the spring and fall I practice with my throwing knives (with the garage door closed, no need to concern the neighbors).
Thank you for your post!
I'll blog about flying edged weapons in April 😉
