Great looking, Clay. Are they all recycled heads that you re-forged? Can't wait to try and get started on a few sometime... Ever since the weekend at your house, it's been a steady downward spiral-can't thank you enough .
MT Longbow the hammer poll hawks are not specifically designed for throwing. I normally make spike hawks for that.
Gudspelr. I can tell your fully hooked. I have 15 blanks from the full set of knives I worked on over the winter that are tempering in the oven right now. I just finished hardening them tonight. I am plotting out a couple of big choppers in the near future. Right after I finish the guards and handles for a couple bowies and two long hunter blades that have been sitting for a long time. Your welcome, though I wonder if your wife feels grateful for your new hobby.

Wow-can't wait to see all those knives waiting in the wings. I think the wife's glad I have something I'm really enjoying-guess she was hoping I'd suddenly love mowing the yard instead.... . Makes her even happier at the notion I might get good enough to try and sell some knives somewhere down the road. I'm sticking with what you said-if I can do a hobby that helps pay for itself, that can't be a bad thing. Take it easy and have a great weekend.
Just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying the hawk. I like it cuz it's light enough that you don't mind taking it along but heavy enough to do some serious choppin'. The wife and I also enjoyed the short visit we had with you guys. Thanks!
Here is the hawk on a backpack trip with my son and I.
When I was a boy scout, my scoutmaster taught me the value of a good hatchet. I have carried a 'hawk afield for decades. Your hawk will do about anything a knife will do and more. A great design. Keep makin em.
