Tipi Dan: The Cold Steel tomahawks are made in Taiwan… hence the metric allen screw.
I am engaged in a similar project, except I had the screw hole welded
closed and am going to mirror-finish the head, then use a bluing pen to
decorate the blade sides with Norse dragons. I stole that idea from some
dude online. His looked good. My leather sheath is considerably smaller…
just a strap and an edge protector, all heavy saddle leather
saddle-stitched after gluing. I use a Dremel tool to drill through many
layers of pre-glued saddle leather and a pliers to pull the needle through.
There are as many ways to do this sort of thing as there are artisans, and
that is a happy thing. No YouTube videos… couldn't anyway… it takes me
weeks to complete a project like this.
Dave Bostock: shut up and take my money ! haha.
Do you sell your modded versions of the Norse Hawk ?
jason richardson: I like it, u got good skills there, I always have a brew and think over
things when I need to, it always helps
Blake Tyler: Very nice work. I'm enjoying your videos.
peregrine bushcraft: Could you find a smaller piece of sand paper hahahahaha great job I've got
a trail hawk I just need to pluck up the courage to start modding it i just
know I am going to screw up but lots of ideas and tips from your videos
thankyou for sharing
Whiskey Richard: Really nice, +1 subscriber
You even sharpen it properly, with the blade against the direction of the
band. I've seen so many guys sharpening their stuff WITH the direction. ugh
red5llaw: Thank you enjoyed the video. Some nice mods. When you first started I
didn't likke the idea of dying the handle, but when you finished it looked
brilliant. Well done
Mudpaws Voom: not a bad job. nice made vid
peregrine bushcraft: That thread your useing what is its is it waxed cotton ???
Jason Chasteen: You do some nice work man thanks for sharing!
Thomas Harrell: Nice job mate. I would like to see the completed job. Very good looking
MrYungGunn: I felt so bad for you when the leather flap didn't match up with he stud
but i really like the way you resolved it, its actually ended up looking
incredibly nice the joint with all the stitching gave it a little extra
detail. great work and nice video.
WolfsEngels88: After watching your video i definitely want to redo the handle and head
finish. One question though, I read a lot of people disliking the screw in
the back of the head. After you removed it did you put it back in or leave
John Smith: other uses for the Norse hawk is as an Alaskan ulu.
Les Laxson: How much did you end up cutting off the handle?
RedNecksFromSweden: the real norse hawks had spruce handles
Thomas Harrell: What size is the male part of the closing apparatus?
Bruce Ferguson: Not being a leather worker I am guessing the lesson learned would be to put
the hole in the flap first then mark for the stud. See it was a learning
tool you did for all the people watching. A wood turner told me "there is
no such thing as a mistake just a design change" Thanks for going through
the whole thing very interesting to watch.
ThePTownPirate: Good comeback on the sheath mistake, i reckon it looks better
Ivo Wilson: this is really good, great video!
Liam Grealy: Very helpful and I will be buying a few for me and friends and fix them up
to a nice looking tomahawk but I don't know where to get leather and I am
un experienced with it so i probably won't make a sheath for it and just
davidks83: great video. wonderful craftsmanship on the sheath! liked your solution to
the pin problem
citizensoldierny: Damn , nice work. You make it look easy to do which I'm sure its not
FaceMaster420: Is rubbing alcohol not that common in the UK?
andsowot: not bad. i did the same mod. but i hate the cold steel handle on it so i
made a new one out of ash. hits harder and throws better.
johnny wadd: Nice work--enjoyed it.
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Cheers bud . Ahh , I'm very happy with how it turned out and i certainly
wasn't going to discard the leather . There's the problem , fix it ..
Thanks for the compliment bud . Luke
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Thanks mate . It'll certainly do the job ! Thanks for watching
stonybrokebushcraf: Great job man looks cool
Windham Woodcraft: I have to stop watching your channel! Every project you do inspires me to
try my hand at it. My wife is gonna strangle me for spending so much time
in the shop then heading off in the woods! Well done man!
petepoe4: Its true it looks even better with the mistake you have made.. Makes it
more unique as well I guess
lovatscout1: Great work again fella nice job
Bornfree0776: Great job mate patients of a saint to do that.
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Cheers bud
pidgeonplucker: Great job with the sheath luke! i think showing your mistake was good of
you because it lets everyone know we are only human and capable of some
errors from time to time. it looks all the better for it mate. top job! atb
Glenn Montgomery: Great video Luke. That video makes me want to go and try and do something
like that myself. Although I don't think my Mrs would be too happy about
all the shavings on the room carpet lol. Cheers Glenn
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Cheers bud .
Jim Cyr: very nice set of mods.
Argo_mtb: Great job mate the mistake only added character :-) Argo
homesteadinarental: Top notch man... can't wait to start working on the rifle men that i bought
... made a sheath for it out of thin bag leather but it will keep it
protected till i get some thick hide to make sheaths... greetings from nc
davidfriars: Great job but had to laugh with the mistake we all have done it just one of
them things but good recovery, i will have to get myself one of the hawks
and do a project. Thanks Dave
OutdoorEnthusiast101: I don't think there's a word for it bud .. But i immediately lost the
feeling when the ole light bulb pinged above my head and i found the
solution . Thanks for the compliment buddy .
stoneman886: great mods, its made a big difference to the look of the axe....fantastic
work on the sheath too, it looks amazing... all the best.. Mark
George Wright: Hey brother, I saw a shout out for ya on Reeperzoutdoors. Happy to sub you
and check out all your videos. If ya get a chance come on over and check
put my new channel.
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Cheers bud . I'm farrrrr from perfect and a couple years ago it would have
been in the bin ! But it really is best to learn from mistakes and a cool
head will soon put things right . I didn't even swear haahahah Thanks for
watching buddy Luke
OutdoorEnthusiast101: It doesn't matter how good the tool is mate , if it doesn't feel right ,
then its no good for me .. but that's no judgement on the tool itself ,
just my ability to handle it . Removing doesn't affect the steel mate , the
steel will generate a patina over time . If it gets wet , i dry it with a
sleeve . If steel rusts there's only one thing to blame .. yourself .
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Cheers Alb mate . It was a genuine pleasure to work with , lovin the Norse
Hawk too . Ancient Weapon/Tool that just feels great in the hand .. Might
make a shield .. hahahahahh Bring on the Normans !
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Cheers bud . I can't help but put my touch on a tool , If only i had a
workshop ! Thanks for watching Mark mate Luke
OutdoorEnthusiast101: Cheers mate
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
