Chas, that is so very, very, sad... No

I can never bothered to learn what the C and CE buttons on calculators are for, so I have to hit them both every time I want to start over.

C = Clear - For use when you make a single mistake. Say you meant to add 14 and accidentally hit 15, you can clear the 15 and enter it again without loosing the previous values you were adding to.

CE = Clear Everything - Starting from scratch.

When they are combined into one button (C/CE), one press is Clear and a double press is a Clear Everything.

"Need" a new tomahawk but I can't decide which...

This one because of its superiority as a tool for breaching, emergency extraction, cutting wood, and all the other things I'm most likely to actually need it for:

Or

This one because it's better suited for close quarters combat, though mostly just because it looks cool:

Either one is more than capable of shredding a wooden door or a car door.

Umm.....

CE = Clear Entry (clear last value entered)

C = Clear (everything)

What are you planning to use it for? Personally I'd try to get an accurate replica of a museum piece, but if you're going to be putting it to heavy use you'd want to get something which is fireman grade.

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
I ordered the entire series of "Breaking Bad" used on DVD from Amazon with Birthday Gift cards. I planned to binge watch the first season this weekend, but when I put in the last DVD to watch the final episode, the disk was wrong. I had 2 Disk 1s and no Disk 3 Angry

So, I had to skip ahead and start watching Season 2 while I wait for Disk 3 to arrive. I have seen it before, but it was years ago, and I don't remember how Season 1 ended.

Multi use. I want something I can put on my ruck sack or belt that won't add too much to my overall load for chopping wood out in the boonies or emergency extraction from a damaged vehicle. I'd also keep it in my car or take it camping for the same reasons. Either way it will definitely receive heavy use, and has to be able to quickly go through a blocked building door or damaged vehicle door.

There are ones I can get for around $100 that will effectively serve the same purpose, but I want a high end RMJ tomahawk, hence the "1st world problem."

I missed out of a sale, now I need to spend a lot again to get some stuff I need...
