While not having a metal head or spike, the one below has been on several trips, including Europe. TSA didn't bat an eye. But then again, neither did I.

Got Mrs Magger and myself out of an "interesting" situation with 2 junkies along the river in Toledo, Spain. This one is Irish Blackthorn.

Canes are GREAT under the radar tools.

I have recently got into blacksmithing I have made several knives, and one hatchet from railroad spikes. I think a railroad spike would work just fine for this hummm...

This looks like a pickaroon, a tool used in the timber industry.
Google it and you'll see.

A brick masons hammer might be easier too work with than a hatchet. Larry

I have one of the hatchets, but it was my grandfather's and it is still handled and tight, so no on that.

But this?

I picked up a brick masons hammer Saturday I've already done a bit of reshaping. I was originally going to round the hammer head, but I think I will remove it and about an inch more below it then curve
the remaining part up. Then round over the entire handle.

Hookaroon/pickaroon been a lot of them on ytube. All start with an axe and you grind or cutaway anything that doesn't look like a hookaroon. Have a rather large tree that is dying in stages,Usually leaving me with the cleanup job. usually tie a rope to the larger pieces and haul them away to the burn pile. So now can get the smaller pieces. So bought a "Council Tools" hookaroon. Smaller pieces go in the bucket on my front end loader,and on to the burn pile. Frank
