Introduction: My Lil Hawk (Throwing Tomahawk)
My first Tomahawk
It is made from an old horseshoe rasp. It is folded and forge welded together (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forge_welding) and tapered to fit the handle and stay on. It is almost all sanded to 220 grit with obviously black pitted forge marks.
I carved the handle from a large piece of two tone hickory.
Can someone explain this to me? Why is the hickory two colors? i have numerous pieces like this. Is it the Phloem and the Xylem of the tree i need bio help!
But anyways yeah it looks cool regardless
Handle is wiped with linseed oil(Magic Stuff here) a must for all wood projects. It also does a decent job at blade rust prevention.
As for throwing it is light for a full grown man but still throws incredible. Probable less then a pound.
Questions anyone? let em fly!
