    Totally recycled hatchet!

    Being a confirmed cheapskate, absolutely everything on this one is recycled :D (GB Wildlife for comparison/scale) The head came from the local dump, and was a block of rust with a broken handle. The poll had obviously been used to hammer on metal, and it was a toss-up as...

    A whittler for the Scouts...

    I finally got around to finishing this one, after it has sat in my box of bits for nearly a year... 4mm O1, scandi ground, with a full distal taper down to the point, so the blade is actually about 3.6mm thick at the ricasso and tapers down to nothing at the point.. The tang shape is inspired...

    Just finished this one...

    A while ago, I saw an ad from Brisa for damasteel offcuts. "Aha!", I thought, and bought one. Then I thought, "How do I HT this?" :rolleyes: Fortunately, Shing put an ad in about the same time, offering to do HT with his facilities, so that solved that one. Anyway, a bit of sketching produced...

    Axe masks

    Been busy making stuff recently :rolleyes: I brought all the hatchets owned by the Scout group home to sharpen, as they were in a rather sad state. A bit of workshop time later and they were all properly convexed and polished. One didn't have a mask, and I had discovered a Kent pattern head in...
