Making a dovetail hatchet from three different metals: steel, brass and aluminum. Inspired by rare examples of steel and brass pipe tomahawk, exchanged as diplomatic gifts between Europeans and Native Americans. This one is also “enhanced” with a solid aluminum handle. I don’t pretend this to be functional. It’s made for the challenge of making it and as art piece more than an actual work hatchet. It can still chop stuff and seems to hold up well, but of course it has nothing to do with a proper one made entirely of steel.
