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 Atlantic 33 tool steel. Atlantic 33 is tremendously resilient and is often used for hammers due to its strength and durability. The head is hand carved and antiqued. Each side of the head is inlaid with an 1863 Indian Head Penny. The octagon bowl is sculpted and textured, moving into an octagonal neck. A threaded titanium plug is easily removed for cleaning the titanium tube that travels through the haft. The hawk is accompanied by a handmade titanium tool built to remove the plug.
The haft is formed from presentation grade curly ash wood. The head measures 8-1/2 inches from cutting edge to the end of the bowl. The cutting edge is 3.4 inches long. The haft measures 22-3/4 inches overall and is finished with a titanium collar and end caps.
Exceptional work throughout.
