I got my trailhawk from Bushcraft Outfitters the other day and spent a few hours on it and making some leather for it.
Did what everyone else does, stripped it, sanded and stained the handle, done a little wood burning to it.
Used a leather stain, which looks nice in the Hickory, then tried aging it a bit, then a good couple coats of BLO.
I made a simple edge mask, and a belt carry piece. I attached the mask to the belt piece so that I can't lose it. The video at the bottom is very short and shows how it works. Over all I'm satisfied with the work and the hawk.
While I like it I'm not sure I like it more than the old Norse hawk I have. I'm still considering that longhunter from 2Hawks, or the Voyager.
