Ed, if you are not familiar with the story of the Great Indian Chief Black Hawk,
go to the library and read up on the story of his life. He was one heck of a tough fighter for his people.
Back in the day, many tools were given the name Black Hawk, it was a indicator of how tough they were, how they were well built and would last to the end.
I have a Black Hawk hand crank corn sheller, only reason I bought it was because it was named after the great Indian Chief Black Hawk.
Also, there is a fine line of hand tools named Black Hawk, but most are to expensive for the average Joe.
If I owned that planter, I would keep it, just because it was named after Chief Black Hawk!!!
But then again, that is just me. I subscribe to the theory, a man cannot have too many tools.
do not give it away, I bet there is not another Black Hawk planter laying around under every old oak tree.
