This hand forged Trade Hawk from Elmer Roush features a hand forged head patterned after trade axes made during Colonial America period. The design is patterned after tomahawks traded by colonists to Native Americans, usually characterized by a generally straight handle or pole with a smaller edge. This 'hawk is packable, with the head sliding on and off the handle, making it easy to throw in a bag or stow away. The head has a mild steel body with a high carbon edge forged into it for maximum strength at the edge. The head is smaller and thinner, for a very light and fast tool. The forward cheek is high cut so you can still get behind the head for finer work. This Trade Hawk features filework embellishments around the perimeter, and both sides features copper and brass inlaid bars. Elmer's makers marks forged in the head. This one has a hickory handle with a linseed oil and beeswax finish for both looks and to protect the wood. Comes with a spec card written by Elmer.

Note: Each axe is hand forged and hand-hung. These are hung in one climate, shipped to another climate, and then shipped to you. It is 100% natural for some wiggle in the head to be present after changing climates. If it goes to an area more humid than Arizona, it might firm up all on its own, or else a small amount of effort by the end user can get things locked in tight as can be. It is expected for the end-user to have to maintain an axe and handle, so don't worry - axe users have been managing this just fine for a few (actually, a lot more than a few) thousand years, so you can too!
