I'm planning on forging a tomahawk head that slips on and off of handles of any length. A train Graff writer i met would carry a tomahawk head and handle separately in a satchel - both are legal to carry so long as they're not attached.

I'm curious whether this is true everywhere? I'd make a leather belt sheath for the head and a loop for the handle if so, and wear both in sketch areas.

Thoughts in general?

I carry one and have never been hassled for it. i also carry it with the ax head removed from the handle. also sometimes carry a folding pruning saw and have only been asked why, never been hassled for that either.

If you buy from Amazon it comes out to $50 and some change with shipping. But if you buy it directly from the makers website they're like $69 plus shipping.

I have forged railroad spike knives. I would like to make an axe head. Do you have any information on the process? I just saw all this and was curious.
I've seen a video on youtube of a cool tomahawk made from a railroad spike. Don't remember the exact title but with a little searching you should be able to find something. I also knew a guy who forged knife blades out of old leave springs from cars. He used a battery powered blower fan and charcoal as his forge. Worked pretty well.

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
Been a while since I last posted on this thing.
