Here's one I banged out for a forging contest. The contest is "zombie killing tool" and at least part of the tool must be forged. I wanted it to look rough, as if it was forged after some cataclysmic event. The tick-marks were my wife's idea.

Just bought this off a friend of mine, he had 2 and I was fortunate enough that he sold 1 to me. I humbled to own such a blade...Horrigan Fighter

New project. Almost done. It's turning out really well. The blade shows a couple of artifacts of the forging process, which means I need to get more acquainted with my wire-brush before hammering. Nearly everything went right with this project (which isn't normal, but I'm hoping I'm trending in the right direction). I need a little patchwork on the pewter, a final blade buffing, a couple of little touches, then the final finish on the handle. After that-- Finito.

I'm especially impressed with the figure of this chunk of wood. I got lucky.

After X-rgr sent the hawk that he built for me, I decided that I also wanted a cheap one that I would actually be comfortable with abusing (CRKT tomahawk). It is a clumsy, heavy cleaver compared to the work X-rgr does. The difference is immediately noticeable whenever you pick the two up.

Neither!!! But if he's good I may let him drool over X-rgr's work next time he's at the house, as long as he looks with his eyes and not his hands.

That is stunning.
Is that guard copper? Or is that just the lighting?

It is indeed copper, SW. The guard also has a little Damascus on it.

If anyone would like to check the guy behind the knife, hit up Nobleknives.com.

This was a custom idea we came up with one day, essentially my wedding present to myself.

The man behind it, is actually a third generation knife maker. His father helped him in the shop frequently, and actually passed away the day he started on this blade. This blade wound up being a tribute piece, and I intend on taking care of it.

Extra Cool Mr. Smith. I love the classic coffin-handle gentleman's Bowie idea.

Thank you, X-rgr. I just told him I wanted a Bowie fit for a gentleman, and this is what came of it.

I am sure you have had many a request, hopefully sometime in the future I can add a hawk to my collection.
