Tomahawk Forging (12 Hours)

Forging a tomahawk is a great starter project for blacksmithing. Forging the head will introduce students to the basic practice of drawing & shaping steel as well as forge-welding and heat
treating to harden the edge. Students will forge a traditional style “wrap-around” tomahawk head and will shape/ fit the handle form provided hardwood blanks. Then students will personalize & complete this “hawk” with traditional details & embellishments of their choosing. Open to all levels of experience.
