Description: Mastersmith Henry Torres had the opportunity to work under renowned bladesmith Bill Burke in the spring of 2006. This allowed him to best understand Bill's techniques of heat treating and implementation, which result in a level of edge holding rarely found elsewhere.
This tactical compact hawk is made with edge awareness, economy of motion and mobility in mind. This makes it perfect for tight spaces. The head measures approximately 5-1/2 inches in length from the rear spike to the front face, with a cutting edge of 2-1/2 inches. The overall length is $10-1/4 inches.
Henry used 80CRV2 carbon steel throughout so that this hawk can be relied upon for a keen, long lasting edge. He sand blasted and cold gun blued it for limited rust resistance.
Designed so that the heaviest area rests at the head, the axe's full tang is skeletonized, reducing overall weight. The haft is formed from dyed curly maple and fastened with copper rivets. A copper lined lanyard hole in end gives you the option to add an extra bit of security.
Accompanied by a handmade leather sheath.
