RR Spike hawk

Recommended Posts

Both the spike and edge are HT'd with the eye center left at spring temper. I carved the tapered oval handle from wild crab apple off my place. The grip is elk rawhide rehydrated in strong coffee with brass domehead tacks. The handle is finished with walnut Danish oil.

 

I let the edges of the spike head cold shut and then forge welded the seam closed. That allowed a little more meat for the head.

I like the spike hawk but I like the handle even better. That crab apple has a very nice look and the elk rawhide tops it off nicely. Good combination of materials and craftsmanship. Wade

Thanks! This will be donated to my daughters school auction along with the mini bowie.
