    We have had ours for a couple of weeks now, and I REALLY like this tool My son and I have whupped on this hawk pretty good and she is holding up fine. It has some dings in the micarta and paint that won't come off the head, but this thing is tough.. It's probably going to camping with the Scout Troop this weekend, she'll get a good workout there. More comments to come..

    I thought I would put this here too, so everything is one place as it relates to the mighty War Hawk!

    By the way, in case anyone is interested, I'm no longer making these. At least until I can get a source of 5160 in the size I need. The 4142 is just too expensive to sit on and wait for infrequent orders and too hard to work with.
    So there will be three more (two on order now and one I'd like too keep) and then no more.

    Yeah, just too much work and too much cost on both ends. Thanks for understanding, guys.

    Hope it's OK to post this here, Iz. I just got this one in the mail from Bushtramp -
    with BT's gift of a smile ....the canadian flag patch! :D

    [​IMG]

    Sharp eyes will notice a lot of sweat stains on my cap with the Turley patch since I got it a few months back....
    and some new scratches in the #21 Wilson's Creek knife...hehe...
    both are hard earned....I can't stop using it. :57:

    I took about 3 swings and this war hawk put the silliest smile on my face! lol.
    WHAT a beast of a splitter!!!! :38:

    Has a super nice J-leather mask (great job, Jake!)
    and a Leather World belt hanger came included too.

    THANK YOU, BUSHTRAMP!!!! :dblthumb:
    My favorite tools all came from members on here -
    and I think of them warmly when I use the tools - this will be no different, bro!

    Now that I have a sheath for it, I'm using hook a lot. We are using the woodstove every day and I have been a kindling chopping fool. The hook is perfect for producing kindling. The sharp, thin edge bites into the wood and as the head gets thicker, it acts as a wedge. I really think you need to make more of these Iz!

    Wow, now that is a unique blade to be sure!
    Evidently collectible now, too bad as it looks like a good tool to be had.

    I appreciate you asking, man. Unfortunately I'm not taking orders on anything right now, I have to get the wait list worked down before I do.
    There's a possibility (who knows when) that I might have an extra one of these days. That's the best I can do right now, I apologize for that.

    I wish I could say, man. I have no idea what things will cost in four years time. As a sort of frame of reference though they sold for $400.00 to $450.00 when they were new.
