Too bad. I like your work and would like to see some more.
So would I lol.
Hopefully with experience come efficiency - allowing more finished products in a shorter amount of time. I'm currently making items for myself, family and close friends. If I had to charge for my time, even at minimum wage- I would price myself out of business. I understand the whole "labor of love" bit- would rather give my work to people I care about than undersell it to strangers.
I enjoy it, definitely satisfying making a tool with your own hands.

Thanks for the wonderful gift Robin, I have it with me every day. I got back from 2 days stuck in the Sonoran desert. I went down there to accompany a foreign journalist. His rented car broke down and then he got very sick as we were fixing the car. Had to spend the night there till we got some help from the locals. Don’t drink the water said a very old man that came to help us out. A warning that our foreign friend did not take. We all made it out ok.The water purification tablets that I keep in my SAS survival tin saved the day. Glad to be home.

This is the head I’m going to put on my Sayoc Winkler primitive tomahawk. Came up whit the idea of doing one from looking at Pipemans work.



Im looking for a good piece of wood for the handle, I think I’m going to go for a longer handle than that of the real R & D hawk.
What ells do I need?

Et,

You might want a sturdy, elastic yet rot-resistant (beeswax-coated for water and insect repellent) straps.
It could be a quick paracord with several nails for better fit and impact-prone chopping.
