A Couple New Mouse Hawks

These are from my Mouse Hawk Series, blade lengths aprox., 5 inches, edge widths aprox., 3inches with 15 inch handles . It's been a while since I've made any, so I thought I'd post a couple pix.

Both are forged from 1-1/4 by 1/4 inch 5160, with double fag welded blades and forged brazed with bronze at the eye for extra strength. Handles are ebonized maple.

Nice tomahawks, love the handle shafts. Ebonized maple? Never seen it.

Here's an article that talks about it. The author uses tea to add tannins, but I used a solution made from pecan shells and water.

Thank You for your response.

That was quite informative, especially with the price of ebony. I will definitely try this on some wood projects a neighbor does. I'm fond of walnut so I'll give it a try.
