Here is a diminutive bag tomahawk made by Vermont blacksmith Brian Anderson. It is a traditionally made tomahawk, almost no file work but all hammer-work on a coal forge. Its wrought iron with a forge welded inset steel bit. It is a half size copy of a tomahawk associated with Fort Ticonderoga; the head is 3 7/8 inches long but it is a real working tool. With some luck, it will help me dress a deer soon.
