Description: Lonnie's Tomahawks are very traditional in style, yet are brought to a level rarely seen on hawks. All the more rare is to find a Damascus hawk by Lonnie due to the complexity of forging such a large piece of Damascus.
The Damascus head features a sharp spike and 3 inch cutting edge. The head measures 9 5/8 inches across. It has been highly sculpted. The left side of the head has been marked by Lonnie with his name: "L.C. Hansen". Below this, he has engraved, "In the year of our Lord 2004". A moon and star are engraved.
The 21-3/4" haft is formed from highly figured red curly maple. Pewter accents are poured directly into wood and then finished. A leather wrap provides a secure hand hold. This piece is very sturdy and well weighted.
