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.
leatherstump: You may be upset by the issue of a short overflap, but I think that your solution was absolutely brilliant. That stitching was a really neat design, for the sheath. Not to mention, your attitude was fantastic. Keep making amazing videos. Thank you!
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
Muroctelion: 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
ratrod diesels: i just rcvd my cs trailhawk i plan to do what you did in the video , at the top of the handle i noticed these ridges ? do i file them off or use my blade at 90% and shave it off . thank you
john whitehead: nice vid,glad to see someone else makes mistakes,and a nice solution.all the best from a fellow yorkshireman.
Ron Gearhart: Great job.Thanks for sharing.
Douglas Fraser: Cut a ten inch section from a bicycle inner tube ( 700x35/450) and slide in onto the handle. It makes for a very secure grip. Douglas Fraser - "The Prepper's Book of Idea" (Amazon, Kindle)
Kieran Moore: Good video. I just ordered me a norse hawk last night. Can't wait to get modding. One question, where do you source your leather and how much did it's cost. I've looked all over for good leather like that!
Jeff Killa: Hello brother!! Quick question, what type of oil do you recommend for the steel head? I recently modified my norse hawk and I noticed that it likes to get that surface rust on it after a day or so. I just used wd40, it helps for a little while but I'd rather not have to oil it every couple days! Thanks for the tips by the way!
Kyle Sutton: Hah. Found this video just in time to receive my Norse Hawks. Cheers!
