A couple of Benghazi Warfighters

I had a couple of customers who are friends who wanted Benghazi Warfighters from me.  The one had already gotten a War Chief tomahawk, and the other wanted the blade on his to be extra long.

Both were forged from 1/4" 5160, both got black canvas Micarta handle slabs.

The regular-sized one is 11 1/8" overall with a 6 1/2" blade.

Both also got black Kydex sheaths with TekLoks.

Here it is with the War Chief.  I think they go well together.

The oversized one has an overall length of 12 3/4" and a blade length of 8 1/8".

By way of comparison:

In spite of the significant difference in blade length, they both balance at about the same point at the choil.  That's because I left out the lightening holes in the tang of the long one.  The new owner commented on how lively it is, "feels like an extension of my hand."  :)

 Both gentlemen have served in the armed forces, Air Force and Marines respectively.  Thank y'all, fellows!
