Guzzo, what's the significance of the horse's head motif on some of the examples?
Hi ronje, I used to have a facebook page called Workhorse Forge and that heavy horse head is my makers mark and earlier work I had a small anvil as my mark. We have a couple of heavy horses at home and they are cool dudes. For me the heavy horse is a symbol of strength and reliability.

Great stuff Guzzo!

I'm one of the blokes around Darwin making knives, it has become somewhat of an obsession.
Hi Jeno, It is a great useful thing to do. Once you make your own you never feel right about buying a knife haha. Would love to see any of your work.

Here is a Pipe Tomahawk that I sent to America. before I hardened the steel I engraved the bear head and bald eagle into the steel. It was forged out of an old drilling rod.

(for those not familiar with this type of hawk it is a smoking pipe. They were traded with the American Indians in the frontier days and became a symbol for war a peace. It has a small hole down the length of the handle and the back of the head has been hollowed out for the pipe bowl. the little plug at the top screws out so you can clean the pipe channel.)
