Top one is #2. It's about 6 5/8" long and a little under 2.4" at the cutting edge. It weighs right around 9 ounces.

Bottom one is #3 It's a little over 5 1/2" long and is 2.57" at the cutting edge. It also weighs right around 9 ounces.

Both are forged from 100 year old Wrought Iron and 5160.

I still have some refining to do and then a deeper etch before they are finished.
I'm getting a little better, but I'm still not entirely happy with the results.



Thanks for looking! :)

The material was some round stock that was flattened to around 1.25"x.25" with Jerry Rados's 500 lb Chambersburg Hammer :) .

I then tried estimating how much I would need to get the overall length on the finished hawk. The top one I over estimated the starting material by around an inch. It came out a lot longer than I wanted.

But it's a learning process, so mistakes will happen :thumbup:
