Description: Dylan McCoun of McCoun Tomahawks specializes in producing traditional style tomahawks to fit a wide range of uses - from camping to combat. Dylan McCoun is a third generation bladesmith, beginning in the early 60's with Charles McCoun making a few knives as a hobby. These were passed down to his son Mark in the late 80's when he began his knifemaking journey. Dylan is the third generation to start this hobby turned professional. His passion for bladesmithing started at a young age from watching his dad. He made his first knife when he was eight years old and hasn’t stopped since. By 16, he was making knives to sell and he went into bladesmithing full time when he graduated high school.
This large axe is Dylan's French Trade Tomahawk. This size of this hawk is the perfect compromise between being easy to carry but up to hard-use tasks.
The head is hand forged from 1" 4140 carbon steel square bar, chosen for its chromium and carbon content -- making it an excellent choice for heavy use, high impact tools. The blade culminates in a hammer. The head measures 6 inches from the cutting edge to the hammer. Cutting edges are satin finished. The head features a blackened forge finish with decorative filework.
The haft is charred hickory with a linseed soak. It measures 18.2 inches from top to bottom.
This hawk is accompanied by a hand stitched leather custom sheath for easy carry.
Excellent work throughout!
