    Wow guys, amazing work!



    Here's little comparison pic before / after. Made this for sale and my friend wanted it.

    I think I might shorten my frontier hawk like some of you have. I did so to the above hawk and I liked it. Would fit inside my packback without the shaft peeking out.

    I just got into modding t-hawks recently and this is my first one! I love all the different materials you can work with--leather, wood, metal, beads and feathers. I got a lot of ideas from this forum and youtube and I combined them into this creation. It's obviously Native American inspired, though not really anything specific. I just wanted something that looked cool that I could display above my fireplace.

    CRKT Woods Chogan


    Here's another one I did, it's the CRKT Woods Chogan. I cut off the hammer poll with a hacksaw so it looks more like a traditional t-hawk. Sanded the handle so it friction fits flush without the rough jagged shelf. Pyro engraved some Native American symbols onto one side then stained and polyurethaned it. Put a leather collar on it and a suede and leather lace handle. Took a section of raccoon forearm fur and used it as an accent under the collar, and put a fox squirrel pelt in the background. I blued some designs onto the blade using Birchwood Casey and masking tape, and of course sharpened the edge. Tied some turkey feathers on with suede lace along with a couple bead tassels with mallard feathers.

    I love my frontier hawk, and I must say that even if "nothing fancy" I just love these kind of clean and simple mod jobs. Very nice!

    I love this one. Nice work. Wish I had one like this.

    Pretty simple, but they work well. That's tennis overgrip tape on the trail hawk.

    Good to see everyone is still modding CS hawks. I pulled out one of the last hawk projects from five years ago. Prior to my retirement, I was modifying hawks and Becker knives. Since then, I have bought a Wilmont 2x72 grinder and have been making knives of my own design. My plan is to complete this hawk. For those of you who do not remember this one, it started out as a CS Pipe hawk. All work was done with files, wet/dry sandpaper and WD-40. The rising star logo (modified screw hole) I believe is something I started five or six years ago. I'm glad to see some of you are using that idea and modding it to your own taste.

    Wow what an awesome thread! You guys have some serious skill. Here is my first try; a Norse hawk. Looking forward to getting a few trail hawks to have fun with.

    Heres mt viking hand axe that I've worked on. I still may sand the head to a satin finish. But I really don't fill up to it right now.
