Description: Lonnie's Octagon Hammer Pole Tomahawk is very traditional in style and sturdily constructed. The synthetic sinew gives an excellent grip for using the hammer. Pewter accents are poured directly into wood and then finished. The curly maple handle is well figured and very dramatic.
Lonnie got a small amount of 1086M to use for a few hawks. He feels that this produces and extremely fine edge that is also very durable -- a rare combination. The head length is 8 1/4" and the cutting edge is 3 2/3". This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering.
Lonnie has increased the size of the pewter endcap on this one, as well as arched to connection between the cap and the haft. The result is dramatic to look at and pulls the weight into the handle. The top of the head has been fileworked in a deep vine pattern. Lonnie has finished off this piece with a heart cutout in the blade.
