Description: This Frontier Hawk is an exceptional example of Raymond Richard's unique work. It has an elegance and timeless sense to it that wouldn't be out of place by the side of an American pioneer, bravely breaking ground in a new land. It captures the spirit of a time gone by - yet has the excellence one expects from a contemporary knifemaker.
The head is hand forged from a carbon steel recovered from a truck leaf spring. The head was forged closely to shape, ensuring optimal grain refinement. An forged, antiqued finish gives the axe an heirloom appearance. Raymond's touchmark is on the top of the head. The fittings around the head are antique wrought iron.
The large haft is a huge piece of premium hawaiian Koa. Koa (Acacia koa) is a beautiful, exotic wood that only grows on the Hawaiian islands. It is one of the most desirable woods in the world. The base of the haft is wrapped in leather for a comfortable grip.
Excellent work throughout!
