    A fairly plain hawk we finished up. Edge hardened and tempered, we also harden and temper the hammer poll face just like a regular hammer..

    Excellent work! :thumbup: The head looks unfinished? How rust-prone is the head?

    looks like a great hawk, though I purely out of preference like a lower angle convex edge.

    Often we do put some sort of finish on them but sometimes we dont. We had some folks wanting them unfinished so we make sure and leave a few like that now. My personal "fence line" hawk is unfinished, forged from a rasp. When I get done using it I spray a mist of wd40 on it or wipe it off with a oily rag. My hawk hangs in the shop and Ive never had problems with it rusting. A forge finish or a blued finish is pretty rust resistant rom what Ive seen.

    When Im killing chickens with it I make sure and get the blood off ;) Blood rust is tough :D

    I am liking that thing even more now that I know it's going to a good permanent home in the hills and ridges of good ol east Tennessee.
