Just ventured into the Hawk realm. I bought a CS Pipehawk about 2 weeks ago. It was okay but the edge was disappointing but after some work I was able to get it descently sharp. I have sanded and staind the handle and wrapped the lower portion of the handle with leather wrappings. I am going to make a leather sheath for it soon as well. I haven't stripped the head yet but might do that as well. Anyway this is my first post in the Axe, Tomahawk and Hatchet Forum. I will post up pics in a day or to on the thread.
