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 and engraved. It is forged from 52100 carbon steel with a patina finish (my favorite of the carbon steels for edge retention). Lonnie's mark is on the right face of the head: "L.C. Hansen / In the year of our Lord 2010". A sun is engraved to the side of his mark. The left face features engraving, "Liberty" with a moon and stars. The pewter collar is engraved with "Don't tread on me / Liberty or Death"
The head measures 8 inches from hammer poll to cutting edge. The cutting edge is 3-1/4 inches long. The haft measures 22" overall.
The haft is formed from exhibition grade curly ash. It has nice warm tones and a very tight curl. This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering. The hawk is also accompanied by Lonnie's Wood Tonic, which helps protect the haft for generations to come.
Exceptional work throughout!
