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 finished. The head has a tremendous sense of grace and has been sculpted. It features a heart cutout, a double carved chevron and vase filework at the top and bottom. Lonnie has tapered the leading edge and heal for a very elegant appearance. 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 2/3" and the cutting edge is 2 3/4". The haft measures 20 3/4" overall. The end cape is formed from copper, bringing in tremendous warmth to the knife. This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering.
