Description: Lonnie's Tomahawk Hammer is very traditional in style. The leather gives an excellent grip for using the hammer. Pewter end caps with pewter collars add tremendous distinction. Lonnie has only recently begun adding a fileworked metal top cap to his work. The hickory handle has a chevron grain pattern and a nice mix of warm dark and light tones. The head is 52100 carbon steel with an antique patina finish (my favorite of the carbon steels for edge retention). Double carved chevron accents on the head finish this piece to perfection. The head has been pierced with a detailed cross. The head length is 8 3/4" and the cutting edge is 2 3/4". The haft is 21" long. This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering.
