seems that tomahawks have been 75% of my commissions since the start of this pandemic.
most are forged from 4140 except those made from rail road spikes as requested.
here are some random pics of the last 3 months work.

I really like your style of hawks.  Where do you get the steel for them?
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

about 50% comes from the scrap bin @ work.
the other 50% I purchase online.
p.m me if you'd like the suppliers name.
great prices and service.

Now if that polled hawk had a curly ash handle....

I tried twice this morning to make a decorative "war hammer" from a R R spike. Any tricks on drifting the haft hole? I'm  thinking about drilling a pilot hole through. I had both attempts herniate to the side. Dang it!
