Description: Lonnie's Tomahawk Hammer is very traditional in style. A hand stitched leather grip gives an secure hold in the hand. Buffalo nickel details swell into the palm. The leather is finished off with a satin finished pewter collar. Pewter accents were poured directly into wood and then satin finished. At the base of the haft, Lonnie has formed a hummingbird. The red curly maple handle has excellent chatoyancy similar to a tiger's eye gem stone. The head has a tremendous sense of grace. It is forged from 52100 carbon steel with a patina finish (my favorite of the carbon steels for edge retention). Sculpted accents on the head finish this piece to perfection. The head length is 8 1/2" and the cutting edge is 3 1/3". This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering.
