    Couple Older Knives

    Besides here, I have seen tippit's products on other forums as well. I have always admired his skill and the quality products he produces. Once again, very nice looking knives and sheaths.

    What you can do with a Cold Steel Frontier Hawk

    How did you get the Hickory haft to stain that dark?

    More Hawk's

    Outstanding! Very nice work. Did you do the engraving and any additional shaping of the hawk heads?

    Latest tomahawk project.

    Mike, You can get them form Track of the Wolf. I bought a really nice curly Hickory off eBxx but it cost quite a bit. You can also get them on a site called Hatchets and Axes I believe. Redmoon, very nice! What did you use on the haft to get the curl to show up so well? That looks premium...

    My Hawken faddish.

    30coupe, It is what it is. After all you don't get a choice when you purchase a GPR rifle kit online. You go with what ever comes in the mail. I believe unless abused or dropped from a distance the rifle will be OK and if it should crack or break I suppose that is the chance you take ordering a...

    Latest tomahawk project.

    Here is a top view. DD1, it really isn't all that expensive unless you buy a different haft instead of using the one that originally comes with the hawk, but it is labor intensive. The premium curly Maple, curly Hickory, or other exotic hafts can cost twice as much or more than the original hawk.

    Latest tomahawk project.

    I have been wanting to do another tomahawk so before it gets too hot here I decided to customize a Cold Steel spike tomahawk. I have done a few of these in years past but haven't done one in awhile. I thought with all the shutdowns why not. I wasn't sure what I wanted it to look like so I just...

    DOUBLEDEUCE 1's first customized tomahawk.

    DD1, My pleasure. You have the ability you just needed a nudge and you did outstanding work.:thumb::thumb:

    DOUBLEDEUCE 1's first customized tomahawk.

    DOUBLEDEUCE 1 and I have been communicating both here on the forum and via personal email since him seeing my thread on customizing various commercial tomahawks. He decided he wanted to give it a shot himself so after some questions he decided on the CRKT tomahawk to be the one to try his hand...

    Attempting to customize a CRKT hammer pole tomahawk.

    It was a pleasure communicating with DD1 and his desire and commitment to customize himself a tomahawk is commendable. He thought he could and he did, and in my humble opinion I think he did a fantastic job. DOUBLEDEUCE 1, do you mind if I post a couple of the photos you emailed me so the...

    Rate kits on difficulty: TVM, Chambers, Kibler, Pecatonica...

    There has been some good advice given on this post that I wish I had known when I did my first ever high-end kit. In my defense I purchased my kit from an individual who had purchased it from TOTW but then decided he wanted to do something different. The kit, a Kit Carson Hawken half stock in...

    Attempting to customize a CRKT hammer pole tomahawk.

    Again, guys, thanks for all the replies and critiquing both favorable and unfavorable. We all have a right to our opinions and the right to express them. KENT.REICHO, I found the curly hickory haft on eBay. Wasn't cheap either. It is a very nice quality haft that I thought would really set off...

    My Hawken faddish.

    Boomerang, Sorry I haven't replied sooner but my attention was drawn to another project after the GPR kit build. Here is the finished rifle.

    Does anyone rust blue a hawk

    They are both the same styled Cold Steel hawks that I customized.
