"The First-Light USA Tomahawk ST is one of the most innovative and versatile tactical lights on the market. While the outward appearance of this light might seem a bit awkward, don’t be fooled by what you see.
The Tomahawk has an L-shaped design with the controls on top of the lamp assembly. Being well versed in modern gun/light techniques, I was a bit disappointed at first because most of those techniques would not work with this light. After a bit of inspection, however, I came to the realization that those techniques were designed to deal with problems that are not present with this light.
The Tomahawk design allows the operator to assume an almost typical two-handed shooting grip. Every time I placed my hands together, the light beam was lined up perfectly with my muzzle. An adjustable finger ring indexes the light so that the lamp is always facing the correct way. It also allows the light to be rotated out of the way for hands-free weapon maintenance.
Another tactical advantage of this light is the location of the function switches. The ST has a constant-on mode with adjustable brightness settings, a momentary-on mode, and a strobe mode. Each of these modes is triggered by separate pressure switches. This gives the operator the ability to switch between modes quickly, without having to employ fine motor skills (i.e. turning a rotary switch).
The Tomahawk ST has many other tactical and practical features that cannot be covered within the space of this review. I give this product the highest recommendation. First Light USA has definitely raised the bar by which the tactical light industry is measured."
