None of these mean the tomahawk's a bad item. On the contrary, it's a tight example of competent design. The problem is that the tomahawk didn't show any of your ambition or imagination. It didn't sell the work you put into it well enough to make up for its flaws or shortcomings.
I do appreciate the comments. I should have done more research into the competition before entering, but I only saw it with like a day left. You're spot on and I appreciate it. I was not especially ambitious--I generally don't like magic items, so, they're probably my weakest area of Pathfinder knowledge (with maps, since I don't use them, right up there next, so I am probably not destined to win this contest). I do very much want to work in the RPG industry, and I will try again next year (after spending the year learning about the things I don't like), but I'd ultimately rather be editing in the long run.
