Description: Lonnie Hansen makes some of the most dramatic hawks found anywhere. This pipe hawk is a captivating example of his work.
The head was hand forged from solid titanium. This keeps the hawk light and nimble. The head is heat colored for an heirloom appearance. The right side of the head features an engraved sun design and is inscribed: "L.C. Hansen / In the year of our Lord 2011". The octagon bowl is sculpted and textured, moving into an octagonal neck. The top and bottom edges of the blade are textured to match the diamond carved flats. A removable threaded titanium plug is easily removed for cleaning the titanium tube that moves through the haft. The haft is formed from presentation grade curly ash wood. The head measures 8-1/4 inches from cutting edge to the end of the bowl. The cutting edge is 3-1/4 inches long. The haft measures 22 inches overall and is finished with a pewter collar and end caps. Exceptional work throughout.
The hawk is accompanied by a tin containing Lonnie's "Monarchy Blend Non-Tobacco Smoke". When Lonnie wanted to test how his pipe hawks worked, he wanted something that could be smoked without real tobacco. He did a lot of reading and experimenting and finally settled on this formula. Everything in it is legal. Though he doesn't want to give the exact recipe, the 3 major ingredients are mullein leaf, coltsfoot leaf, and mugwort.
