It finally came to me what the Shrike and Shrike S-13 remind me of: the good guys' swords in J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings trilogy: beautifully-wrought, deadly practical.
I like the Shrikes because they're hammer-forged; making them (theoretically) a bit tougher.
The only difference between the fullsize Shrike and the smaller S-13 is 2 inches of handle length and 3 oz of weight: the heads are identical. So if you're in a situation where 'every ounce counts' or where shorter is handier, the S-13 is the way to go.
OTOH, the fullsize Shrike has the potential to hit a bit harder, due to its longer handle. Either way, you've got a tool and/or weapon that's as good-looking as it is useful.

I got my Shrike 7 years ago and I have used it frequently since then. It has withstood everything that I have subjected it to, without failure. My only gripe is the sharpening stone; it broke the last time I perforated a barrel. I highly recommend this tool. It is well made and reliable.

3 years ago I purchesed my first "tactical tomahawk" that cost me a solid $20. I got what I paid for. Since then, I have had a longing for the best of the best... But could never justify the price in my mind.
Recently I made the decision of taking a chance on a nearly $500 piece of steel. And again... I got what I paid for.
A Solid, sharp, light, fast, tool that begs to be held, and excels with every swing. The craftsmanship and the love poured into it is breathtaking, and I'm proud to support those that provide the best.

This is a phenomenal tool, anyone who has handled one will tell you this. As shown in videos, it is meant as a breaching tool, however as soon as I received my Shrike, I carried it as my camping/hiking companion on a recent long weekend trip into the woods to test it as an alternative to a hatchet or similar tool. The Shrike handled everything without skipping a beat, even performing better, in my opinion, than the hatchet we typically bring along. I am 100% confident that this tool would do well in the breaching/CQC realm as well, as that is its normal intention.
As far as the company itself goes, I've read some poor reviews on various blade forums online (however, they were from a few years back), and it saddens me to see this, as I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with both Richard and Kerri Carmack. The service they provide for their customers is bar-none some of the absolute best in any industry. Shout out to everyone at RMJ for producing an absolute beast of a product, that feels great in the hand, is very easy to use, and for the size and brute strength, is very light and maneuverable. Don't let the sticker shock steer you away. Save up, and BUY THE BEST!
Kerri and Richard; if you read this, thank you both so much for your amazing service, your kindness, and willingness to address any questions or concerns!
