This hawk has a 19" oak haft made from a Home Depot 2"x2". The 8 1/2" head is hand forged from a Bush Hog blade. There are feathers a raw hide wrap grip and sinew on the haft.
As always any and all comments are welcome.

Mr. Houghham, very nice, aren't they fun to make? That's some good looking rawhide and I love to use Oak. It has so much character. Have you tried "torching and scraping " Oak? It really brings out the color. Again, very nice......Randy
