New/Old 'Hawk

This ‘hawk head came to me in a trade and while I still can’t forge quite yet I can piddle with stuff so I put this one together.
I didn't like the head so it got itself reshaped and done some filing on it.
Didn’t like the “weeping heart” cutout on this one so I poured it with pewter.
Haft is Ash from a broken axe handle. Both ends are pewter and it has some beading, porcupine quills, tacks, brass wire, hairpipes and a leather handle wrap.
A little aging for that well used rusty/crusty look….

Great looking work once again, Randy. You've got a knack for these historic reproductions, but it may just be the fact that you can remember them so well. :biggrin:
