Just finished up my latest batch, 5 in all, although I don't have a full group photo.

Hey Alan, thanks for the words, I've always found myself inspired by your work when it comes to tomahawks.

 

The blade finish is a satin finish with a scotchbrite belt, and then several coats of cold blue. I find that even though it's hard to get a deep solid color with cold blue, I actually like the uneven finish. It gives it a slightly aged look (to me at least, lol).

 

 

Beautiful work Stephen, what's the handle wood?

 

Thanks Sam, the handles are all Curly Maple, one of my favorite woods.
