I Forge Iron

some of my first hawks

Recommended Posts

i`m new here, so i guess i`ll show some of my stuff. i don`t know how to make the pics smaller like you guys do.


these are all Railway spike. the ones with the head left on throw really well


this is antique/old crowbar. also my favourite hawk. throws very nicely and will go thru 4inch birch branch in about 3 swings.

i use whatever hard wood for handles, especially for throwing, because they break far to often. industrial type mop handles take minimal shaving down to fit, especially with the round hole.

the hooked beak hawk was actually a 1.5 pd ball peen hammer. weighed just over a pound when it was done, about 19 oz. my first "hammer" hawk. thanks for the comments. i have a nasty habit of making knives " ping" a lot . almost 45% breakage rate. am taking a break from those till spring when my oil quench turns to liquid again.
