Gerber 30-000715 Downrange Tomahawk Breaching Tool
When you’re in a situation where time is of the essence, you can’t waste time wondering if you have the right tool for the job. No matter what’s on the other side of that door or barrier, you want a tool with the same single-minded determination as the man wielding it. The Gerber Tactical Downrange Tomahawk is a marvel of simplicity and efficiency in service of solving serious problems. No moving parts to breor jam, no extraneous gimmicks to get in the way—just a well thought-out design and three-quarters of a century of Gerber craftsmanship in your hands.
Triple-Purpose Ax Head- There’s no arguing with a tomahawk. This is largely due to the Downrange’s three-tiered approach to tactical breaching. The axe head’s beveled edge is capable of chopping through drywall and turning walls and doors to splinters. The backside of the ax head functions as hammer for getting through hinges, locks, doorknobs and anything else that’s there to slow you down. The third threat is a pry bar at the end of the handle, controlled by a cutaway grip in the ax head.
Serious Pry Bar- Opposite the business end of the Downrange Tomahawk is a hefty pry bar. With a solid marriage of physics and force, you can confidently pry away using the cutaway handle in the ax head for leverage. The 420HC steel body with Cerakote™ will not bend or break, and the desert tan G-10 handle has integrated scales to keep the tool firmly in your hands no matter the conditions.
Packs Like a Pro- Tomahawks don’t exactly fit in your pocket, so it comes with a sheath that’s as practical as the tool itself. No matter what line of duty you serve in, if this tool is going to make it to where the action is, it has to be easy to carry. Which is where the MOLLE-compatible sheath comes into play. It readily attaches to your pack, standard webbing or body armor, so it goes where you do.

This is my favorite pair of wire strippers due to its functionality. I also love the fact that the knife in the handle separates from the rest of the tool.
This thing is sturdy. Granted, I haven't used/deployed it yet. It's got some heft to it and I like the grab handle/axe head. Very nice product. A bit pricey but nice.
Got this as a gift for my brother before he deploys, thanks for such a great deal on it Botach.
Wouldn't pay full price for it but Botach had a great deal on it and couldnt pass it up. Lightweight and useable
I've been eye balling this tomahawk for a year now waiting till it had a price drop,and finally Botach did a half off special. At 179 too much , but 120 still a lot but somewhat doable.
Pros : solid construction , excellent grip texture , feels unbreakable but not to heavy to carry in pack.
Cons: price and lack of being sharpened when shipped , but easily fixed for 4 bucks at hardware store.
Summary: I have yet to kill a walker or survive a apocalypse, but will take camping or next field operation. Despite the price I think it's worth the weight and usefulness to carry. KCCO
Sweet piece of gear, works outstanding, Botach has best pricing you can find.
Also on their returns, they were great on another item I purchased that was not up to quality standards. No hassle quick refund...Thank you
Great price , excellent product, super fast shipping.
Great company to deal with,
haven't received it yet as of this morning
