Here are a couple of forge-finished pieces in one picture set. First is a spike tomahawk, forged from a 16 oz USA stamped ball peen hammer. The eye is drifted to fit a standard hammer handle, and the head is heat treated to retain good hardness. The head is tempered at 450 degrees, softer than a knife, and the spike has been drawn back with a torch. This heat treat is good for durability and not breaking more than it is for edge holding. The hawk is 16" from handle to top, 6 1/2" from edge to spike, with a 2 1/2" cutting edge. $175 I've got a half a bucket full of ball peen heads, and another bucket of handles, so y'all can expect more hawks in the future.

The second forged piece is a traditionally styled blacksmith knife. Made from 5160 steel from a 1940's Packard automobile torsion bar, this knife is 12 3/8" long with a 7" blade. Forge finish on the handle and along the spine, and belt finished flats with a convex grind. Right hand sheath. $150. I've never done a blacksmith knife before, but now with the power hammer I'll likely put out a few every now and then.
