ATC's Special Guests at the Blade Show!!!

Nov 2, 1999

It gives me great pleasure to announce the following guests and representatives you can meet at the American Tomahawk Company table at the Blade Show!

Maria LaGana - Peter's daughter and representative in light of Peter not being able to attend due to health reasons....she will be displaying never before seen photos and actual pieces from Mr. LaGana's personal bladeware for your review.

She will also be able to answer your questions about the history of the Vietnam Tomahawk and the American Tomahawk Company.


Master Sergeant Schott and Staff Sergeant Gingrich, 4th Battalion, U.S. Army Ranger Training Brigade:

These active duty, full-time Ranger Instructors, straight from 4th Bat., will be present all weekend to answer your questions about the Rogers' Rangers Tomahawk Project, the Best Ranger Competition, and the boatload of fun the Rangers had throwing the big steel last month.


Chris Caracci!!!

A man whose legacy in serving his country needs no introduction, his reputation preceeds him.

Chris will be available all weekend to discuss the CQB functionality of the Vietnam Tomahawk, demonstrate his sheath design for same, share the excitement about an upcoming Hawk project, and generally just get everyone totally pumped about Tomahawks!!!

Don't miss the excitement in Atlanta June 8th, 9th, and 10th!!!

Andy Prisco,
Co-Founder, Manager

I am surprised this thread is not on fire!

I get the idea that most people here do not know who Chris is.

Folks, Chris is ex-Seal Teams and served under the legendary Dick Marcinko. He has BEEN THERE, DONE THAT BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!

He is one of the worlds most sought after tactical trainers and has several training videos including some workout videos sold by Brigade Quartermasters that would make you feel like you just got run over by a freight train.

He has designed several "tools" for his trade including knives for makers and companies I am not at liberty to mention without his and their permission.

Chris is easily catagorized as a "living legend" among those who are informed about the Special Operations Community and Law Enforcement circles, but he doesn't seem to be big on publicity therefore I will stop here. However, anyone who is interested in these fields of study would find the trip to Blade just to talk to him WELL WORTH IT.

I also thought this tread would be hot. Not because of Chris though. ( I'm sorry I didn't know anythig about him until now )
But just the thought of getting to see all of the hawks at one time. Plus getting to see Bobby Branton demonstraight throwing these hawks. Plus meeting Andy and Bobby. Plus meeting Maria LaGana. I am really excited about the blade show. I can't wait to see it all.
