Description: Lonnie Hansen makes some of the most dramatic hawks found anywhere. This pipe hawk is a captivating example of his best work.
The head and all fittings are forged from titanium and given an heirloom quality granite finish. This keeps the hawk light and nimble. The right side of the head features an engraved sun design and is inscribed: "L.C. Hansen / In the year of our Lord 2013". The octagon bowl is sculpted and textured, moving into an octagonal neck. A removable threaded titanium shield at the top of the haft 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 3-1/2 inches long. The haft measures 22 inches overall and is finished with a titanium collar, end caps, and mouthpiece. Exceptional work throughout.
The hawk is accompanied by a tin containing Lonnie's "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. Also included with the hawk are a plug wrench and a bottle of wood tonic to keep the haft in perfect condition.
