How To Do A Tomahawk Cut

You worked hard during the hunt and successfully returned home with a deer. Now you are ready to process your game. With a variety of methods to harvest game meat and getting the most from your catch, we checked in with Josh Dahlke from The Hunger to learn how to do his preferred approach, the primal tomahawk cut.

We also learned from Josh that when butchering any game after a hunt, sharp matters. No matter what method you use, sharp tools ensure precise cuts, honor the integrity of the meat, and eliminate waste.

Share with us why #Sharpmatters for you during and after your hunting and fishing adventures in the comment section below for a chance to win the Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener.

    When I worked as a meat cutter I realized the importance of maintaining all my knives as sharp as they could be. Both for speed and efficiency. But important also to make neat clean cuts for appearances of the product going into the counter for sales.

    1. Perry, we agree that a sharp knife is important when working with meat and other foods. A sharp knife creates a much easier and efficient experience!

  2. As the go-to guy for knife sharpening at my deer club, I used to spend HOURS putting an edge on my campmate’s blades. Some of the edges were, to say the least, in terrible condition! Trying to establish an angle on the edge that looked like it had been cutting bricks was a real chore.
    After getting my Work Sharp system, my “job” became a pleasure to do. Everyone commented on how sharp their knives were, and how long the edge lasted. I’ll never be without a fresh set of belts, again!!

    1. That is great to hear Michael. Thanks for sharing your Work Sharp solution with others and for taking the time to post about how important Sharp is!
