That is really cool. I have a new found interest in tomahawks. Taking the class at MCCC next month. I hope someday to do such fine work.

Looks awesome, I have to ask, how do you forge out the spike part and the heel and toe so perfectly?

Keith, I do the rough forging with a power hammer. Then is when the slow down comes. I just go really slow to round or square up the spike. The blade I just keep fish tailing so to say with the peen of the hammer and then smooth up and grind.

WOW!:eek: Man that one is just wicked looking! Can't believe it is still here!
As an owner of one of Stu's hawks I have to tell everyone, "You are missing out!"
Great work as always,:thumbup:
