Our best selling mouse hawk is a smaller version of our standard tomahawk. It's clipped beard is reminiscent of Scandinavian style axes sometimes referred to as Viking, Norweigan, or Norse. It is hammer forged from high carbon steel using a traditional coal forge. It is lightweight and sharp with just enough weight to chop kindling, brush, or for throwing. Each axe is made individually to order and no two are the same. The axe head weighs approximately 8 ounces and has an approximately 3 inch cutting edge that has been differentially hardened and tempered for maximum edge holding and durability. It will have hammer marks from forging and a blackened finish seasoned with oil. The 16 inch handle is made of North American Hickory and is friction fit for easy take down and reassembly. Both the eye of the axe and the handle are tapered allowing it to be disassembled by striking the bottom of the handle on a stump and reassembled by striking the top of the handle in the same manner.
