    Compact hawk


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hello all,

    This is the first in a series of hawks I have been working lately.

    This one is the "softer", less aggressive version.

    As the title says, I wanted something compact, portable, versatile.

    A very interesting design. How big is the edge? How does it perform cutting wood? If I were using it as a weapon, I would sharpen the front as well.

    I like the way it looks, but I can't envision what it would be useful for. You say it's versatile, I guess I just can't see it. So, what's it for?

    Here are some specs:

    OAL: 28 cm
    Cutting edge: 5,7 cm
    O1 steel
    5mm thick
    Double temper
    Natural micarta scales


    Handaxeproman: it could be done, I have a bigger one on its way that might have an upper edge on it, but on this one I wanted to avoid it as it is a less "tactical" version.

    I did something similar on this one a few months ago:









    When using the spike as a pry, you will use that upper curve as the fulcrum. That' s one of the ideas behind its design.

    I call it Compact Hawk because my intention was to reduce the typical width of the tomahawk head, making it more portable, keeping a cutting edge and a spike, plus, as said before, I wanted a spike that could be used for prying.

    I have 2 versions that will be posted soon, one more CQC oriented, the other one more "survival kit".

    I love it! I could see this being a great tool for me around the firepit.
