I bought an old W. Gilpin kent pattern head and made a handle to it.

The head was in a pretty good shape, i only had to use a sharpening puck and a strop to make it razor sharp again. It has a very low angled edge, ideal for cutting.

The handle is made from ash, i bought a piece of planned doard from online and from that i cut out the rough shape than finished the final cuts with a spoke shave and a file.

This one too has palm swell scales, i quiet like them from a different wood, i think it looks good.

Over all i am happy with the result, this small forest axe is pretty handy at coppicing and hedge laying, did some felling with it too.
