From Williamsburg Virginia working in a traditional manner with hand tools to forge, file and finish a pile tomahawk common to the Colonial frontier. It includes a fine curly maple handle that Wallace drills, shapes, stains and finishes. Also shown are original tomahawks from his private collection. Wallace demonstrates making two types of pipe tomahawks.
One is from strap wrought iron with a separate pipe bowl attached. The other tomahawk is forged in one piece with the pipe bowl. Wallace also shows forge welding the steel bit into the iron head.
Includes bonus material on how Wallace modifies a hot cutter to make a bottom fuller to help in forging a tomahawk.
