Description: Lonnie's "Liberty or Death" Hammer Poll is very traditional in style. The head has a tremendous sense of grace and has been sculpted with double chevrons. It is forged from 52100 carbon steel with a patina finish (my favorite of the carbon steels for edge retention). It has been detailed in brass. Lonnie's mark is on the right face of the head: "L.C. Hansen In the year of our Lord 2005". This has been inlaid with brass. Similarly, the left face features highly detailed brass inlay and decoration: "Liberty or Death" along with Lonnie's mark "U.S.". The head length is 8 1/4" and the cutting edge is 2 2/3". The haft measures 22" overall.
The hickory haft has warm tones and is complimented by satin finished, antiqued pewter fittings. This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering. Exceptional work throughout!
