This extraction tool is a formidable item. First you will notice the weight. It's heavy at 2 lbs. 11 oz.! The item is made from 3/8 stock and most of it is that thick. The removable handle grips have a slight texture allowing for a secure grip. This is a great item to have at your side when you need it. The head cover is a thick canvas with snaps that allow easy removal. There is a belt loop, but the weight of the tomahawk may not make belt carry practical.
