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, keeping the hawk light and nimble. The right side of the head is inscribed: "L.C. Hansen / In the year of our Lord 2012". The left side features a stylized compass. The octagon bowl is sculpted and textured, moving into an octagonal neck. Both the titanium head and the pewter end cap are sculpted in a brick and cross motif. A carved, threaded titanium shield plug is easily removed for cleaning the titanium tube that travels through the haft. A handmade plug wrench is included.
The haft is formed from presentation grade curly ash wood. The head measures approximately 8-1/2 inches from cutting edge to the end of the bowl. The cutting edge is 3-1/4 inches long. The haft measures 23-1/2 inches overall and is finished with a pewter collar and end caps. The collar is engraved with the Latin inscription: 'CHRS REGN VINC IMP' -- translated 'Christ reigns, conquers, and commands'. 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. The hawk is also accompanied by his Wood Tonic, which helps protect the haft for generations to come.
