    This is what our V3 step file looks like finalized.

    After the profile-cutting tool paths were programmed, we altered the file to make it easier to program the bevel toolpath parallel with the top of the hawk and going all the way down the beard. We also made the file .050" thicker so the cuts would extend cleanly from the bevel to the flat on the .25" actual axes.

    Handle holes and lightening cuts done first, then used as clamps, clearing the way for profile cutting.

    Edge up to make bevel cuts. Check out the finish on that profile.

    Yummy, yummy S7 steel. Looks like they will have a nice forward balance to them.

    Like my small one, but bigger. :dblthumb:

    There were some chatter issues at the end of cutting that had to be worked out. The piece is only .030" at the edge. Those curves at the bit will be removed in hand shaping and finishing.

    Just picked these blanks up and WOW. The quality of the work is fantastic, as I knew it would be. The machining on the flats isn't perfectly consistent but it's fine enough that any number of finishes can be applied by hand, I'm OK with that. The important part is the tooled finish on the profiles. One of the difficulties of my design is that the lightening cuts are integral, but it's a huge waste of time to hand finish the inside of those cuts. It normally doesn't matter at all, but it's nice to know that when I sell a para-cord wrapped hawk, if you take off the paracord, for whatever reason, it's clean and neat all the way through. I used to have to do those interior edges by hand. Yikes.
