    Nerf N-Force Klaw Hatchet - Review Empty Nerf N-Force Klaw Hatchet - Review

    So, my Hatchet finally arrived, after 2 months of waiting on Fishpond.


    Nerf N-Force Klaw Hatchet - Review Hatche10



    So, onto the basics:

    Design:
    The Hatchet looks amazing. the level of detail surpasses the detail on my Shadow Fury by far. Aesthetically, it is probably the best looking N-Force weapon out there, bar the Vantage or the Double-Bladed one.

    Durability:
    The hatchet is a lot softer than other N-Force or similar weapons, but still far stiffer than the cheapo $3 swords. The blade is a bit bendy, so it should be far less painful to be hit by.

    Comfort:
    This thing is really comfy. The grip is contoured just right, though it is best held with a loose grip, as it is larger than most sword grips.

    Cost:
    These go for around the same as one of the Fury short-swords, around $25-$30. So while far more expensive than some other alternatives, they do look and last better than cheaper ones are likely to.

    Overall:
    Not having had a chance to properly wield it yet (being at work), and based on holding and aesthetics alone, this scores a 9/10 easily.
    Combat score: Pending.

    Now, I just need to figure out how to strap it onto my vest . . . (not the Nerf vest, btw)

    I suppose the important question will be with a decent arm how far can you chuck this thing? We will find out once you get outta work (or get very annoyed at a colleague?)

    Interested to know how much it hurts (or if it doesn't at all) if you throw it at someone, might be a cool weapon to have in a war if it doesn't :p

    But yes it is pretty.

    Well, its very soft, but due to the lack of weight, it could be very unstable. Will test-throw later.

    Looks interesting.
    I wonder if a weight mod is possible?

    So, a quick throwing session showed me that I can accurately get 15 or so feet before the hatchet starts flailing around with a medium strength throw (which is best for throwing this thing).

    As it is a lot smaller, I get about 2 strokes with it in my off-hand than I do with my sword in my right hand.

    2 of these together combined with running and dodging skills = win.

    If you need to weight mod it, if you're able to cleanly cut it in two (down the middle possibly on the mould lines?) you could put some weight into the hilt and head to make it more accurate at a distance and then glue it all back together. However, having not ever seen or felt this product I have no idea if this could work. You could alternatively drill a hole of a large diameter, fill it with something dense (Lead? It sounds silly but if no where the lead is exposed, you should be fine, but better not anyway. Time to google heavy stuff :D) and then cap it off with a chunk of foam hot glued into the hole. Once again, I have never seen this product so I wouldn't really know :P.

    P.S A chunk of gold would work, but IMO, there's no F&*(%)$( way i'm putting that much gold into a toy!!!

    Better option for weight would be glue in marbles or sinkers, if you really felt the need to make it heavier.

    Cheers,
