Tomahawk

Tomahawk

This special project derived from a 4′ harvester bar from a feller-buncher in used logging operations in Arkansas.  This Tomahawk  uses incredibly stout 3/8″ Oregon steel.  The main shaft has been ovalized with elegant sweeping arcs flowing to the striking head.  Opposite the striking surface has been shaped to a striking pick.  The handle scales are crafted from solid Bubinga, shaped with finger grips, mated to the tang via solid nickel rivets, and finished to a handsome sheen with multiple coats of danish oil and further protectant layers.  Some Oregon markings are still visible near the lanyard hole with buckskin lanyard lending to the impetus of this creation.
