My Birthday Present Is Done

What amazing work. This is my first custom, edged weapon purchase. Beautiful, functional. My wife’s birthday present to me. She is happy with it as well. I am going to place a small leather strip through the pilot hole at the bottom of the hawk and braid it. Very nice, rock solid 19” hickory handle. Simple, cool. This is going on the wall above the wood stove.

X-RGR is easy peasy to work with, suggests ideas, and I feel as if he did not charge enough.

Alright, GS, what should I do with it? Field dressing game? Making toast?

Greeting people at the door?

Just come up with excuses to carry it around. Just because it's f'ing cool.

It’s a gift from my wife and I love so much I can’t be without it.

Name it.

[Name] and I are one. We cannot be seperated or we will die.

Learn how to throw it and then practice on a target in your front yard.

Have Litepath create a chest rig for it.

Put it in a rack in your truck.

Stay away from surplus stores.
