handicraft tomahawks
The international crisis, and the local farm issue (Leftie goverment and drought )made Me wait to take hollidays or go to Hunt somewhere this summer ($$$ issue), so in the meaning time, I tried to make some knifemaker work, just as a hobby, with all respect to the professionals of this art, and without triying, by far, to approach to Daniel Winkler´s knifemaker fantastic work.
I made two tomahawks & because most of You shared wonderful pictures of your works, that enjoy My time in front the PC, and gave Me nice ideas as well. I decided to post some pictures to share.
The first one is a Royal Navy type Hawk, dressed by the natives after trading with some reproduction´s fight marks and genuine old & naturals materials, and the last one is a more european trading sytle "Pipe tomahawk". They will decorate My trophy room under My only North American trophy: a nice Big Tatanka. In the meaning time I am improving My 500 S&W sight sistem and waiting the barrels to start building a big dangerous doble rifle 450 N.E. based in a Brno sxs shotgun, I hope You like them, Guille

When I get to Cordoba I will go to a leather shop and order a loin cloth for this Indian amigo of mine. Now he is going in the African direction.....he will make an Obama spear...dull at both ends..... animal
I told him he must wear that loin cloth with nothing underneath, native style. And when he jumps over thorn bushes, he must jump high, real high. Ayeeeeee....caramba!!! nilly
