Maintain a stellar grip and a secure hold in difficult cracks and hard-to-reach corners with the Tomahawk Piton from Moses Enterprises.

The curved stem adds clearance around irregularities in the rock. Use the tip's double taper to lock into tenuous placements. Color coding makes it easy to grab the right piece the first time.

Comments about Moses Enterprises Tomahawk Piton:

Well thought out & easy to use. I really like the right and left specific design for corner placements. They work great for clean, hook placements. I'll often reach for these rather than hard to clean micro stoppers or RPs. I'm shocked by the couple of bad reviews below. I would consider them "outliers."

      Comments about Moses Enterprises Tomahawk Piton:

      this item is not only way heavier than say a BD thing or beak, it also performs less. the curve on the stem induces fixture when you place it. making retrieval impossible without destroying it. good luck!

      Don't Buy This

      Pros

        Cons

        • Bulky
        • Wears Easily

        Best Uses

          Comments about Moses Enterprises Tomahawk Piton:

          This version of the original "bird beak" does not work very well. The cable loop on it is like a keychain, no confidence in that at all. Also, the curved nature of the stem does not work in it's favor as it promotes the head of the thing to get burried into the crack.

          They are also heavy and expensive.

          Comments about Moses Enterprises Tomahawk Piton:

          The ingenious design makes them way more versatile than other "beak" type pitons.
          Easy to clean and can be hand placed.
          Even though Moses makes these, they were actually designed by Bryan Law.

            Comments about Moses Enterprises Tomahawk Piton:

            These seem to work better and hold more often than the Cassin and Bdel beaks

            I have bent the tip of one of my curved Tomahawks so their thin tips can be a problem if your hammering (like mine) is a bit clumsy at times.

            Can be hand placed

                  Comments about Moses Enterprises Tomahawk Piton:

                  When doing "Clean" aid, these can quite often substitute having to fiddle with micro nuts if you have a bottoming constriction. The left and right have a slight bend in them so if you hand place them in a bottoming constriction they literally cam in while weighting it! But more importantly, the left and right versions have stuck in corners much better than the straight one.

                  We haven't come across any dead heads, but i'm sure these would do just fine hookng on a dead head (especially in a corner)

                      Moses Tomahawks are well thought-out for nailing thin seams. With their cable loop and optimal striking surface, they fit well and clean easily. A must for any aid climber.
