Those are really sweet!  What is your next project?  You must be thinking of something.  Skills like yours should be put to use!

 I think that his next project is to set up a target just to check the balance.

 Oh, by the way, they are very impressive, thanks for sharing.   Frank

Well, Thank you all, I had just decided to finish a few of the hawks I had started around the shop this past week. Then I decided to show them a little.

WOW awesome work!

When you work with old rasps, do you have to harden them after you finish them?

MArc,

I generally leave the tomahawks "as forged" I would rather have them on the tough side than on the brittle side! You don't run the chance of breaking them when you are throwing them and they can be sharpened with a file. That may not be the best, but that is what I do!
