Hey there, guys. In this thread I was wondering about the steel used in several pipe hawks from RE Davis company. Turns out they're made from 8620, which is a low carbon steel that can't be heat treated normally, or some are also made in 4140, which is used mainly for hammers. It could probably stand up to some amount of use, but wouldn't hold the best edge for woodwork. But then, they emailed me back saying they could have a special run of heads made from 6150 steel if I order six at a time. This steel's performance characteristics are fairly close to 5160, and in fact I'm told leaf spring manufacturers often substitute the two steels without anybody knowing. Would anybody here be interested in getting in on a group buy of such heads? I'm waiting to hear back from Tim on price & how long it would take, but I'm hoping they won't cost much more than their regular offerings. Probably in the $30-$40 range. (??) I have been looking for something like this on and off for several years now. This is the first chance I've seen. With pipe 'hawks, it seems you either gotta pay several hundred bucks to get something worthwhile from a custom maker, or settle for a cheap decorator piece made from lower grade or pure junk steel. You can see the styles offered by this company here. Personally, I like the looks & size of their "Fancy Pipe Tomahawk Head", item # 0317. But if the majority would prefer a different pattern, I'm flexible. Any interest?
