Traumahawk™

Utilizing blunt force trauma, the Traumahawk is our invulnerable broadhead designed especially for high speed crossbows. To undersand exactly how special it truly is, first strip back every assumption you have about what a broadhead should look and act like...

A broadhead, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is “a flat, pointed arrowhead having sharp edges and made of steel.” Two significant characteristics are mentioned in this definition—pointed and sharp. Interestingly, neither apply to Firenock’s Traumahawk. 

Often, when the quality of a broadhead is discussed, its ability to pass through an animal is directly correlated to one’s opinion of it. If we apply such a system of thought to the Traumahawk, most people’s opinion would be really low. Why? Because our crossbow broadhead is not meant to “pass through” an animal. 

Blunt Force Trauma 

When most hear this phrase the first thing that comes to mind is usually some sort of injury. Such an understanding is definitely relevant here. Blunt force trauma is also known as the “initial trauma.” See, unlike most broadheads that boast how pointed or sharp they are, as you can see in the image to the left, Traumahawk is not pointed—its literal “point” is in fact an edge. Designed to working a bit like the Native American’s lethal weapon, the tomahawk, our broadhead is designed to transfer the maximum amount of kinetic energy in the initial or first contact of your arrow to the game. Traumahawk, all in all, is designed indeed not to pass through but to tear through. 

Specifications 

Made of solid stainless steel and weighing 175 grains (11.34 grams), the Traumahawk is machined through a high-pressure precision, die-cast process. This casting method results in a much stronger and tougher steel than machined or MIM (Metal Injection Molding) processed pieces of typical bar stock. To ensure concentricity when you are installing Traumahawk on your crossbow bolt, it is also equipped with FACT, which includes the Double O-ring System, on the neck of the Traumahawk. 

Note : To take advantage of both fixed, two blade Firenock broadheads, Dagger and Traumahawk, two things are crucial. [1] Make sure the broadhead is at the vertical position when shot (12 o’clock) and [2] the first dynamic bend of the archery projectile matches that vertical position.
