Recommend stock size for wrapped eye tomahawk?


Recommended Posts

I’m looking at trying my hand at making a couple of tomahawks. I’m planning to use A36 with a 5160 bit. I was thinking about using 1/8” x 1” bar stock for the body, but now I’m afraid that may be too thin. 

Anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!

David

1/4"X1"  is about right for wrapped eye.  From there you can change the eye into different models.  this hawk is made from 1/4" X 1 and you can see the difference in the pole and in the blade edge shape. 

The 2nd photo shows a straight wrapped eye and then a longer pole type as well.  

All 1/4X1"
