Comes fitted with a taered, straight grain hickory handle. Expect some very minor variations in head shape.
A great size for children getting strted in the sport of throwing.
The blacksmith forged Shawnee hawk from H&B Forge is great for camp use, lite wood chopping and throwing. The 19" hickory handle stands normal camp use but often gets damaged when throwing "Handles" with friends. Replacement handles are available.
The sheath is made from heave weight vegtable tanned cow hide is made with a gussett that keeps the blade from cutting the leather lacing. The 2-1/4" wide heavy cow hide belt is fitted with a rectangular buckle of solid brass and fits up to a 48" waist. The durable belt also makes a good carrying place for knives and other tools.
