The military tradition of a tomahawk or axe, is quite long. To this day, the military still issues a tomahawk with individual units as a smash and escape tool. SEAL Team 6 famously carried the Winkler tomahawks, and they are often bought as personal items by troops heading downrange. From my own experience, I remember tomahawks and small axes being quite popular with Marines in my unit. Overseas they were used for just about everything. They served as knives, hammers, pry bars, wood splitters, and even breaching tools.
