My new tomahawk by Troll-Blood
My new tomahawk
I forged the head from nice high carbon steel, and it has a lovely evergreen hardwood handle. Perfect for splitting kindling and the pelvis of a deer, the two tasks I had in mind when I made it.
Camo Boar Skull Totem by Troll-Blood
Camo Boar Skull Totem
A boar skull from a feral swine I processed earlier this year. I had it hanging on my wall after I had cleaned it and glued the teeth in place, and I decided it would look neat to give it the same coat of camouflage paint I give all my hunting tools that I make myself. This might not be everyone's thing, but I love it myself. A lovely totem/hunting charm to bring me luck before I venture out to stalk game.

I actually filmed myself painting it, footage can be seen on my YouTube channel here:
The Gnome Pouch by Troll-Blood
The Gnome Pouch
I was watching old episodes of the 80s cartoon The World of David the Gnome. David always wore a leather pouch on his belt for tools, and I decided I wanted to put together a pouch for small tools like that. The original was a type of pouch where the lid was folded over and stitched and cut to create the belt loops. Well, I didn't have any solid pieces of leather large enough to do that, so I decided to create a nice bushcraft pouch that reminded me of the original while still being functional. So, this is the result. Gusseted goat leather with a small antler joint toggle.

This item is for sale here:
Buffalo Suede Fringe Bag by Troll-Blood

Hey there! I found your page after typing on google "where to buy real crow and bobcat claws" and because I'm already a member on here I decided to add you to my 'watch list' for reference. Maybe I didn't catch it, but do you have an etsy or ebay store? If you don't already, you should consider because you can expand your artisan business. I know there's a huge demand for this kind of stuff and your work is jyst absolutely incredible!! I love your style and all this natural, earthy, taxidermy stuff! I guess I'm naturally drawn to this kind of work you have because I'm a Native American Indian and an earth child (because my birth sign falls under the earth element). Well, I jyst wanted to drop a line and say 'hey' on here! And also to tell you to keep up the awesome work you do!! ...:-)
