At one time I had a link to a company that featured tomahawks but I've since lost it. Any one out there have some good links form me to wander through? I'm looking for a nice piece to match with a flintlock pistol I'm building.

If you want a 'hawk there is always American Tomahawk at http://www.americantomahawk.com/. The front page has one of their more contemporary designs, but if you go to products you will see that they produce an 18th Century line called "Roger's Rangers." I don't know about the level of historical accuracy but I have heard they produce quality products.

RMJ forge makes beautiful, historic hawks but they no longer take custom orders and are very hard to come by. Two other good custom hawk makers that I know of are Michael McCarthy:
http://www.hammerinhand.com/

and George Suiter, gunsmith at Colonial Williamsburg . You can probably get a hold of him through Colonial Williamsburg's website:
http://www.history.org/foundation/journal/Autumn00/gunsmith.cfm .

Both of these smiths offer extremely hisrtorically accurate tomahawks.

Check this link out for a hawk in the making... http://www.vividlight.com/articles/3705.htm

Here are some other smiths that offers tomahawks.

http://members.tripod.com/tomahawks-r-tatca/id40.htm
http://www.rwwilsonknives.com/home.html
http://www.treemanknives.com/ .

I don't have experience with them but they all have been reccommended to me before.

Constant and true.

Great thread, I was just looking into this very subject. Another link would be Daniel Winkler:

http://www.winklerknives.com

He worked on some of the props for The Last of the Mohicans.

You might also look at H&B Forge found here:

http://www.hbforge.com/

And for what I last heard was a 2 year wait list, try Two Hawks:

http://www.2hawks.net/

I bought an H&B Shawnee and I couldn't be happier. I live in a very dry climate and the handle shrunk a bit, but a sinew wrap solved any issues with the head coming loose.

H&B Forge are great, after purchasing a smallsword I intend on getting more of their weapons. great stuff...

I myself got a RMJ hawk, they're out there and I saw two on Blade Art for sale, and on ebay 3 have popped up in the last few months Happy keep your eyes peeled and you'd get one of the best hawks you'll ever have.

Below is a pic of my RMJ that I aquired from E.Carter...I'd never sell it, even if I were poor.
