My love for the period in American History from the 1700’s to the mid-1850’s got me interested in blacksmithing. Guess that’s why I enjoy turkey hunting so much in New York. Love being in the same woods that the Iroquois Indians roamed. Anyway here is a couple of tomahawks I just finished. The pipe hawk is my first attempt at making one. 6E01AB44-6064-46D5-9F64-F0A50E64950A.jpeg 9C04E4F0-2FD5-420A-AA84-0629120DB434.jpeg
Don’t know why the pictures are upside down.

Thought so but the stain/dye was "throwing" me off :)
I use Fiebing’s Dark Brown leather dye followed by Tung Oil. Think it gives a nice finish.

Nice workmanship. Those are fine looking hawks.
