Artist Frank Frazetta created an iconic image in “Death Dealer” a mounted, axe wielding berserker, set on destruction. So iconic that the US Army’s III Corps adopted the image as its mascot back in the 80s. RMJ Tactical is now poised to release a life size version of Death Dealer’s famous axe.
The Ragnarok hawk is a collaboration between Bawidamann Blades and RMJ Tactical and they’re always sold out. My friend Andrew called me over the weekend and told me he was doing a large run and that they were open for pre-order. Offered in both 12″ and 14″ models, Andrew also said that he had multiple color options and that unlike many other tomahawks, the handle scales could be swapped out.

Created by ‘Naked and Afraid’ contestant and Army veteran Hakim Isler, the Tengu Ono (Forest Spirit Axe) offers the following capabilities:
Shaving and slicing – a good cutting blade.
Chopping – heavy chopper for shelter material
Hammering – important to assist in making traps
Sawing – notch making and clean cuts.
Hooking – reach extender for moving logs and clearing debris and avoiding bites.
Precision slicing – for processing game
These tools are made by RMJ Tactical for Hakim.
It includes all of the functionality of the Shrike in a more compact form factor which will be less obtrusive and fit into an active shooter or trunk bag. It is well suited for Breaking Locks amd other Breaching as well as Rescue. We also heard that it’s quite handy for chopping marijuana.
Here’s a sneak peek of a collaboration between RMP Tactical and Austrlian Peter Fegan who is known for his ergonomic designs. The curves of the handle very much remind me of an ice axe.
While the production models will be crafted from 4140 chromoly steel, the Tan variant is actually a one-of-kind, Titanium model. The axes will also incorporate G10 handles. Look for a limited run this fall.
Meet the Rim Jack. It’s a collaboration between RMJ Tactical and American Kami meant as a special build to raise awareness and money for the Green Beret Foundation. The only way you’ll be able to score one of these is when they are in limited release for fundraisers.
Essentially, the Rim Jack is an Eagle Talon head increased 10% with an open bid at the blade. Naturally, it’s 100% Made in the USA. The .9″ thick handle offers G10 grips (laser engraved with both brands’ logos) with a .275″ thick head made from DLC coated S7. The head is held in place via a mortis and tenon attachment with proprietary screws.
Former Army PSYOPS NCO Hakim Isler was featured in the show “Naked and Afraid” and now teaches martial arts and fitness at Elevo Dynamics in Fayetteville, NC. During the show he used a tool of his own design called the Tengu Ono (Forest Spirit) Axe.
RMJ Tactical is now doing a production run of these for Hakim and they should be available soon. An outdoor tool, it incorporates a blade for sawing, an edge for skinny and the ability to chop.
Eleven years ago, on a Wednesday, Ryan Johnson called Richard Carmack letting him know that there was a jet at the local airport waiting on 18 Eagle Talon tactical tomahawks intended for a group of Marines that were preparing for a major military push. Ryan knew that Richard’s sons, Jonathan (14) and Reid (12) were home schooled and could possibly be available to help. Homeschooling is a wonderful thing and this type of activity would count as school work. Richard gave the OK and early that afternoon, Ryan showed up at Richard’s house with 18 tomahawks, yards of paracord, pizza, Mountain Dew and several Monty Python movies.
Ryan and the boys then worked through the night cord wrapping the tomahawks so Ryan could deliver them to the jet the following morning.That episode started the conversation between Ryan and Richard about forming a company that would increase Ryan’s ability to produce his tactical tomahawks for the military personnel that were in need of them.
Plans were then made and the correct paperwork was filled out and filed in order for the company to launch. On January 2, 2005, RMJ Tactical, LLC officially began. Operating first out of Ryan’s shop for production and Richard’s office for everything administrative, RMJ Tactical started its transition from a garage based custom tomahawk shop to the manufacturing company it is today. We are proud to say that January 2, 2015 marks the first full decade of RMJ Tactical being up and running. We only expect bigger and better things for this company in 2015. Happy New Years to all of you!
RMJ Tactical has recent announced an expansion of their office and factor space, accompanying the purchase of a new manual lathe and mill. The full release can be read below:
Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
RMJ Tactical recently expanded their existing building to include additional office and factory space. This expansion project has doubled the size of their production space, which in turn will expedite production operations, allowing them to manufacture tactical tomahawks more efficiently. New support equipment, a manual lathe and mill, was purchased in September for the expanded production space.
Office and shop equipment was moved in small stages beginning on October 20. RMJ Tactical is eager to complete the set up and reorganization of the new space over the course of the next two weeks.
“Setting up the new shop has taken us out of production for about three weeks, but with the new space our production lines are much more clean and much more efficient. We anticipate that this will increase our efficiency and let us produce higher quality and higher numbers,” says Richard Carmack, Chief Operations Officer.
RMJ Tactical’s original space was approximately 1,800 square feet, with nearly 1,500 square feet dedicated to production and the remainder as office space. The new expansion project has created an additional 600 more square feet of office space, and nearly 2,000 more square feet of shop floor. The shop floor now has a designated heavy machine area where the new equipment is located, as well as a finishing area.
According to Carmack, expansion of the shop floor was done in an effort to expand RMJ Tactical’s services and further streamline their production processes for all of their products. RMJ Tactical sells their products both nationally and internationally, with customers hailing from as far as South Korea. “We ship to 22 countries around the world,” Carmack states.
During the reorganization phase of the expansion project, RMJ Tactical allows visitors to view the new space on Thursday afternoons.
“We love it when people come in and see us working in the shop. The move has put a halt on visiting and tour days, but we’re hoping to bring this back sometime mid November,” says Carmack.
