    If your blades are still attached, prop the Tomahawk upside down for a little while, let gravity do the work. I currently have mine propped up this way. However I'm not sure if that will work for heavy drooping. This will work for mild/moderate drooping though.

    Mehhhh....one of my blades is actually curved "up" a little bit. Has been for years.

    I was wondering if you can heat them in some way...?

    I heat them up with a hair dryer and once they get heated up some, I straighten them up. You just have to keep working with them, while the blades are still heated up. It's worked for me.

    I got a large pasta pot boiled some water and let them simmer for around a minute. Layed them flat on the counter and laid a large book on them. Let them cool and now they are straight and strong!
    I like pie..

    I'm going to try that this Christmas season when I'm at the parent's place. Tomahawk is still in their basement.

    I heat them with the mrs hairdryer on a flat surface and then quickly under the cold water to give them a "shock", so far I have used that on 3 sets of blades with success
