it is a process which you put the metal into a punch and die press and the steel is punched to the desired shape..
we take blocks of 1055 carbon steel and pound them on the press till they are almost to the desired thickness then we finish forging on the anvil..then they are taken to the grinder and we finish shaping..heat treated finished and viola 1 custom tomahawk.in my opinion a thick block pounded down is the best way to forge a hawk...

we are in the midst of doing some destruction testing on these
i will post some vids when we get them all finished..

Hey Thanks. I was not familar with the term. I figured it had something to do with something heavy being dropped on it to shape the metal.
