Pipe Tomahawk Class


  • Adirondack Folk School 51 Main Street Lake Luzerne, NY, 12846 United States (map)

The pipe tomahawk is a uniquely American object, rich in history and symbolism. Come learn to make your own authentic hawk from wrought iron and high carbon steel and embellish it with filework and engraving. Depending on the elaborateness of their design, some students may leave with a finished hawk head, while others will have a project to complete at home. Students considering this class should have a solid foundation in blacksmithing - good fire management skills, good hammer control and a working knowledge of forge welding.
