  1. I was planning on just the spear, but I really personally hate it. So I'm also entering a hawk I've just barely finished in time. The hawk is from a RR spike: I totally messed up the punch, but we've been so busy lately I didn't think I'd manage to start over and finish in time, so I just ended up finishing the original. RR Spike Hawk: Steel is HC RR spike, wood is an interesting piece of oak. Normally oak would be a little brittle, but this stuff was so strong I decided to use it anyway. The wedge I used to secure it is actually from an unfinished dagger I finished a while back, but had broken. My family actually has an old, rotting tree in our backyard, so I got permission to test out the hawk on that. It took a while, but I got most of the job done, then just finished off the last few blows with my dad's axe. I'd like to say that the hawk would be best used as a throwing hawk, but I'm not sure if it's strong enough for that. OH, side note. I hardened just the edge of the hawk, and there was practically no sign of wear on the blade when I was done. Ewok throwing spear: I had a bad sense of design when I worked on the handle, and so I hate that part, but I think I did rather well-ish on the head. I made this spear at the starting of this year's KITH, and I can tell I've improved a lot since then. The head is from a car spring, most likely 5160. Hardened once, and tempered in my neighbor's sun oven thrice. It is a stick tang, so I'm not sure if it's the best for force, but it is firmly secured. I did a bit of creative grinding on the blade with a dremel, but I used a bit meant for stones and so it is a little rough. I've sanded as best as I can, but hard to get the rough out of the little cranny.
