    Let's see those tomahawks! Stock, custom, modded, doesn't matter. Let's see them all. I only have one hawk, the CS Trail Hawk, that I had a thread on previously: http://www.bushcraftusa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40026

    tomahawk
    1612, tamahaac, from Algonquian (probably Powhatan) tamahack "what is used in cutting," from tamaham "he cuts."

    Just got the trail hawk for from myself for Christmas. Made a leather cover for it. I can't wait to open it tomorrow morning.

    Been staring too long at the 2hawks page. I have a sneaking suspicion that one will show up here sooner or later.

    You guys with the flat stock hawks: how do you like them? I've seen the for years, but never actually handled one as yet. Kind of interesting...may have to try building one someday...like when I get home to my big tools and grinders!


    Yup. Bad juju with wife's family...long story not worth retelling. Suffice it to say that why we live in two states, but not for long. Works for me tho...I get some along time to work on my 'hawk!! Doing the holiday observation Monday:)

    Do most of you guys use your hawks, or is it mostly a show piece?

    I use mine. Not much to use it on, but I've used it quite a bit in the short time I've had it. Pics tomorrow.

    Hey thanks! That was a Christmas (or birthday?) present from my parents a few years ago. The handle is short though I can change that out in the woods any time I like and the whole package is nice and light - so I'll carry the thing.

    finally...

    Actually been a long day here on my own ~LOL~ Got a lot done tho.

    Heres how mine sat yesterday:
    [​IMG]

    Today:
    [​IMG]

    I removed the nice handle-whipping because I couldn't get the head off with it there, and I found I choke up on the handle when actually using it, so it was just fluff anyways.

    I sharpened it some today. Got the convex done and a rough sharp on it. Need to finish it up and hone it nice, but that'll be another day.

    I paid $100.85 for it shipped, he only sells them through that auction site. I saw them go for up to $200, but if your patient you can get them a bit less.

    I did a lot of research, he forges a good Hawk. I'm keeping an eye on a deal for one of his Damascus hawks..

    What kind is it?

    Doesn't Darrel Aune also make fire pistons? I recognize that name. I probably even own one.

    I have enjoyed this thread WAY too much!
    I really want another hawk, had two, sold one and gave the other away. I have been using the boyscout axe in my avatar but really really really want a hawk! With three boys running around one can never have too many edged tools to hand down...

    He does. He also makes some really nice flint strikers. I've got a couple, and have given a few as gifts. Really nice work. Here's a link to his Ebay store: http://stores.ebay.com/dbprimitiveforgeworks

    Ah, I thought so. I do own one of his fire pistons. It's a cocobolo one, with the traditional string gasket. Nice piston.

    I hear ya. There's just something about a tomahawk. Not only do they look cool, they're functional tools/weapons as well.

    I use mine. Just finished cutting down a damaged Ash and cut it into smaller pieces for a fire tonight. All done with my CS Trail Hawk. Love this tool! The tree was about 10" in diameter.

    I feel a little embarrassed for not using mine. After the mod I did, I felt it more of a show piece, lol. I should get another, and mod it with more of an old school look. Really, I should just use the other. Doesn't do much good sitting there doing nothing.

    I think I'm gonna get a pipe hawk next. Either a pipe hawk or a spike hawk and lop the spike off it

    Sweet looking 'hawks everyone.

    I don't have any new pics to share, but just to add to the thread here are some pics from my 'rust bluing' tutorial:

    First stage of rusting
    [​IMG]
    Second stage; converting rust
    [​IMG]
    repeat
    [​IMG]
    Almost done...notice most of the rust turning black
    [​IMG]
    After several repetitions, a uniform coating
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Here's the 'hawk today after many, many outings in the bush. The 'bluing' has proven quite durable and has only shown mild wear at the bit only, despite all the chopping and splitting. This coating is much more durable than any epoxy or paint that I've experienced.

    Wrapped up excess cord with a lil weave. Have to see if I can pull it off with leather lacing. Might just use a sand colored paracord. Can never have too much paracord lol
