Here's a little hawk I'm working on. The gentleman who ordered it is a primitive hunter and intends on using it. Instead of just setting the ax head in the handle I opted to cut the hawk out of a large round sawmill blade. The edge and spike were hardened with a torch then tempered giving it a proper hardness for an ax. The handle slabs are figured maple. The gentleman will wrap and decorate it when he gets it. I can't wait to see what he does.
Rule #10; "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."
