Railroad Spike Tomahawk by Logan-Pearce Railroad Spike Tomahawk by Logan-Pearce
Railroad Spike Tomahawk

Head Length: 7 1/2"
Handle Length: 12"
Head Material: Railroad Spike
Handle Material: Maple

Available @ [link] for $50.



The handle material doesn't look THAT much different. Not nearly as much as I had hoped. It is a little bit lighter, but I may try to stain it with a dark stain before sealing it. Hopefully it will get a deeper color, while still showing the lines of the wood. It is much tougher than the previous woods that I had been testing out. Which was more of a concern than the way it actually looks.

Anyway, I finished them today and are now available as promised on my website. Yay! :meow:

Now! It's time for me to go inactive for a year. :O jk, lol. :D

There's quite a feeling in your Tomahawks.

They serve as proof as to how something unwanted and forgotten, Like railroad spikes...

Can be reborn as something majestic, Beautiful and coveted.

And more importantly, The incredible skill of the craftsman who made it possible.

Wow, this is pretty awesome. I like the design of the tomahawk's head and handle. I'm having one made I designed myself for a prop from a video game I hope to make in the future. [link]

That is an awesome tomahawk. Ive seen plenty the other way. That is the first this way. Beautifull piece.

Thank you. I think they are cool the other way, better use of the metal. But, the general public has a hard time identifying them as railroad spike tomahawks, unless you tell them or they already have an idea about it. That's why I tried my best to make it look as good as possible in this form. So it jumps out at you, but in a good way. :D

You should try aniline dyes they are much more vibrant than regular stains. They can be mixed in many different mediums. My favorite is turpentine. They come as a powder so you only have to make as much as you need.

Aniline is a type of dye not a brand name. Google it you can buy it online. I have used it for years. The colors are so much more brighter and vibrant than regular stains. And you only have to mix up what you will use. It's in a powder form so it will keep for ever.

What is the function of the knob half-way up the handle? If it's made to prevent your hand from slipping, wouldn't it be better flipped upside-down and on the lower side? In other words, it would keep your hand from slipping /down/ instead of up. I think the primary motion of a tomahawk would force the head away from your hand.
Please note that I have no experience at all with any of this, so it's only an opinion. :D

All that opinion stuff aside, it's a very beautiful and /functional/ piece of art.

It's so you can chock up on the handle. It basically has two places for you to hold the knife. One up close to the handle for your finger to slide into and then the lower part of it for throwing. It has a ridge on the back, sort of like a thumb notch I guess you could say to make it feel better if you needed more control over what you are doing. It's really just the option, it's main use is for throwing.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. :D
