A-23R; The French Lady 'Hawk is pattered after a very old style of throwing axe called a francisca. The Gauls gave Caesar a rather hard time with axes much like these. The pattern was in use over a very long period, and examples have been found as late as the American Colonial period. The head weighs 16 ounces, and has a 4" cutting edge. The increased upsweep improves sticking. This is the most popular axe I sell with the local SCA folks. I throw this one quite a lot myself. It comes with an 18" handle of American hardwood. While it's not evident from the picture, the tapered handle is inserted from the top in the same fashion as the other 'hawks.

The replacement handle is the "OS" style listed

Great throwing hawk!

I've had two for over ten years and done a LOT of throwing with them. I finally decided to complete the set. Balance, weight, and size are the same as the older ones and throws just as well. My only problem now is I keep splitting handles... :/
