kentish backwoods survivalist: Nice mods mate i have the spike hawk and have done mods to that will have to sort out a video at some point- atb Jim
James Kitchell: Good tutorial on the hawk sheth Thank You
jodie richardson: Nice mod and nice resolve of rooster up. Looks really good.
yoshi kagetora: Good video, but I subbed ur channel because of the way you handled the road bump
Darofla: How much did you shorten the handle ? Or otherwise - how long is the hawk now?
Thug Lincoln: Man I've been there, bro - too many times. Perfect work with one epic freakup.
YeOldeScience: I like your idea using leather dye and alcohol. Tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to give that a try. Thanks for uploading this. Lots of good ideas.
Conrad Jarmon: I like the sheath.
Brian Mccann: Love the sheath. Wow. It still came out beautiful good sir. Save this video for future reference fir thst leather workmanship. Wow.
James Miller: Good mods mate
Scott Birse: I was pretty impressed with the leather work. Making lacing look bonny is not to be sniffed at. A good book if you are interested is The Encyclopedia of Rawhide and Leather braiding. Shows you how to make buttons and toggles etc from leather. Good job!
A Tapir Named Jeff: what creates the surface under the paint? is that a rust protection layer? forge scale? should it be removed? if so how?
Roully09: I love the look of the solution to the stud problem at the end. The holster looks more complete and secure now :) Great job!
ratrod diesels: you have the best modded hawks . i just started my trail hawk i used a sharp knife 90% to get the handle shaved then used 120 grit to sand it but im getting a 220 grit to make it smoother i filed the inside head to remove burrs and need to get paint remover to lose the black paint unfortunnately i dont have leather skills but hope for the best.
Tesshin ryū Dojo: best to use a piece of glass to scrap the varnish off (I am a boat builder) you will find it leaves a very good Finnish
Treebeard: Isn't the head gonna slip off if you cut such a deep layer off the handle?
Andy Prowse: great video! I have a query: how do you firmly attach the head to the shaft? I have this tomahawk and it slips off all the time. I've removed the pin that it came with and used some screws instead but even that isn't helping much! Any pointers would be very welcome!
ratrod diesels: i do like your mods and finish , perhaps i should keep it simple and pimp it later !
ratrod diesels: would it be okay to first shave the handle down using a box cutter @ 90% angle then sand it with 300 grit sandpaper , i also saw parkerized finish of the hawk (looked nice ) also some folks gave the bottom of hawk a shave it looked nice too , what are your thoughts sir: thankyou
