This is just out of this world.  Very nice indeed.   :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Thanks much, was my first try in etching but like it, using it as my camping axe 🪓
Bought a tomahawk handle because the handle that came with it was a long two handed handle .

Did you just soak in Ferric chloride or is there electricity involved as well?

Hein -  I tried the paint stripper method to remove the DLC coating of one of my stock tomahawks yesterday. I don't like it and I think it creates more of a mess than anything else.The grinder method works much easier and quicker. I cleaned it up and gave it an over-hit leather jacket with a leather wrap.This is the spike hawk and you will struggle to get a better close combat & self defense weapon. This one is a give away to any of the members who wants it. Keep in mind that you would have to pay for the courier costs to your address..Who wants it?

Visarend and Kilroy excluded of course


Me, me!

It's yours @frankmac
Will call you to arrange

Much excitement as RAM couriers arrived a few minutes ago.

A beautifully wrapped spike hawk and to top it, Hardy offered to do a "Comanche" look with my initials nogal..

The photo doesn't do it justice.

Many thanks again, Hardy.

I'm leaving tonight for the USA and will keep an eye open for nice Tomahawks and related items and post pics whenever I get to see them.
