Description: Lonnie's Tomahawk Hammer Poll is very traditional in style. A hand stitched leather grip gives an secure hold in the hand. The leather grip stops 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 half moon on each side that is reflected in the engraving on the head. The head has a tremendous sense of grace and has been sculpted and fileworked. It is forged from 52100 carbon steel with a patina finish (my favorite of the carbon steels for edge retention). The head length is 8 1/2" and the cutting edge is 2 3/4". The haft measures 20 1/4" overall. This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering.
