Watch: Forging a Tomahawk From a Wrench

I’ve seen a lot of stuff, but this is one of the coolest I’ve run across in a while. Watch as this guy takes a big combination wrench and forges the open-end wrench into one heck of a tomahawk!

Unlike many videos, this one has zero commentary and patter. You won’t have to listen to how or why he decided to do it, how tough or easy it was, blah blah blah. Instead, we simply see the forging process, the end results, and how well it chops things. And in respect for the value of our time, he’s even sped things up for us.

How convenient!

The end result is a working tool that does a great job, and the boxed-end wrench makes a reasonable handle swell and/or hanging eye.

If any video was going to inspire me to own a forge, this is it. Enjoy.
