new haft & old head
« on: June 03, 2019, 06:19:05 PM »



  A blacksmith made me this little hawk when I was a young boy , decided I'd try and make a better haft for it .. The wire inlay gave me fits . the cresent moon is bone . Thanks for checking it out !

The head looks like one used for wood roofing shingles - nice

 Nice work, I like the design/shape of the haft. Out of curiosity is there wire work and inlay on both sides?
