Red hot Hawk!

I really mean it! Normalizing a hawk head. I'm getting addicted to these little guys. I had a chance to use my new Sam Salvati tongs on this one. Made holding on to it a whole lot easier. Thanks Sam!

From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

It was a ballpeen hammer in a former life. It is 4140 steel....I think. :unsure:

Very clean forging.

 

I look forward to seeing that one finished.

What a super pic...awesome. Nice shape on that one, I also look forward to the finished product!

 

Them's some pretty tongs, too...I could use some box-jaw ones like that. Hmmm...;)

That is a great looking hawk. I've tried a few and have yet to get the hang of it to my satisfaction. Yours has great lines and liek the rest, I can barely wait to see it finished.

Very cool shape Troy!!! Glad you like the tongs

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots
