The Track of the Wolf sells a hand forged 'hawk with an iron body and
forge welded steel blade made by Keith Johnson. They were resonably
priced when I worked there condsidering it is a forged ax not a cast
one. Check out their web page (http://www.trackofthewolf.com/)
give 'em a call (Tel: 763-633-2500 ~ Fax: 763-633-2550). I couldn't
find any hawks listed on the web page but they do have a catalog
available for $7 + postage. They are a good bunch and will be more
than willing to answer your questions.
If you call tell 'em Tom Lawrence says "Hi!"
