    Thanks gentlemen for the kind remarks. In the past I have customized the Cold Steel hammer pole pipe hawk and use to peddle them on the internet but I don't do it anymore. Folks just don't understand all the work that goes into doing them plus I am now almost 75 and my equilibrium has gone south. I can still do them but it takes longer now. I actually did the CRKT as a rehab project when I was recovering from surgery. Here is a photo of a Cold Steel I did just before doing the CRKT one.

    Wow, what a transformation! Simply beautiful! You inspire me to be on the lookout for something to try my hand at, though it won't be as nice a job as you have done.

    Beaver Bill sells a real nice hickory haft for $5.00 each. Check out his website.

    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 the CRKT. Of all the hawks I have done, and I have done quite a few, I believe the CRKT has become my favorite. I have others I have made more ornate but I really like the simplicity I stayed with on the CRKT.

    RiverRat, does Beaver Bill have curly Hickory hafts for $5.00 each?
