This Viking style tomahawk is forged from a bar of 100 layer damascus (made by myself) that has been folded round and joined back to its self this gives a layer count of 200 layers at the edge . This method of construction is call a bow tie weld and is a very old traditional way of making an axe. There is an En42J carbon steel edge insert. The pattern in the damascus is formed when the hammering used to make the axe pushed layers beneath each other, the process of the making is written in the steel!
This axe would make a great camp axe and would be suitable for many woodcraft chores e.g. splitting wood and for tomahawk throwing!
The 18inch handle is made from hickory and is fixed into the head tomahawk style with the handle hammered into the head from above. This method makes the axe easy to dismount and the handles easy to replace if you should break them.
The handle is 18 inches the head is 6 inches front to back and 4 inches along the edge.
The Head weighs 10oz and the overall weight of the axe is 1lb 11/2 oz.
