Ball Peen Hammer Hawk

12 posts in this topic

Here is my first attempt at making a hawk from a ball peen hammer. I made it for a friend and now I have to make one for myself.

Excellent work. Especially for a first. Very clean lines. Well done.

   Isn't that how it goes, someone wants one, you make it for them then you want one. haha

Isn't that a classic. In olden times they bragged of forging weapons into tools. We forge tools into weapons ... haha.

Well the Bible has *2* places where they forge tools into weapons and only *1* where they forge weapons into tools.   I was once talking with my pastor and telling him I was considering calling my smithy the "anti biblical forge" as I was forging a lot of farm scrap into blades at that time.  He called me on it and dug out the concordance and showed me the 3 sections, 2 ag to weapon and only 1 weapon to ag.

I would love to have some more cites about this in olden times if you have any to hand.

I have to say, that is a beautiful axe. 

Further, if you don't have the tools to drift an eye or are not very experienced with forge welding or other advanced techniques then using a hammer seems even more ideal for learning how to make an axe.

Holy Carp, that's a pretty hawk.  How many hours do you have in it?

Sorry friend but the first one didn't come out quite right, I will have to try again on yours.

About 3 days with all the polishing.
