    Axe makers Mark

    I got myself a side axe from Germany, it's quite old and I don't know the makers Mark, someone on here might. There is a logo of a griffin in a circle of dots . the eye for the helve is square. That's all I can say about it. Pictures will come tomorrow. Thanks everyone.

    Boot market kettle

    Got hold of this today to use when at camp with my buddies. It's made by Le Creuset and is supposed to hold 1.2 litres but it takes much more than that as the user is only supposed to fill it to the white line just visible on the side, I filled it almost to the top and it does not boil over at...

    Hear are some recently carved spoons that I have started whilst out on my last few bimbles and finished yesterday, the tooled finish was a bit hard to do on a couple of them as the wood grain kept lifting, the smooth finish I did by using a sharp knife as a scraper. The big dark looking spoon...
