I guess photobucket is fixed. The site looks different and works today!

Here is the big Norlund. 5 lb head on a 36 in haft. 6 1/2 lbs is one loverly package.

I don't put much of an edge on my splitting axes , just enough to get the job done .
I'm not sure when I'll have a load of rounds to bust up , let us know if you get a chance to test yours .

Nice creek!  What kind of mower is hiding there and what's the little hatchet in the corner you can see see the head on?

I can't wait until I can swing a big axe again.

I have purchased only one hatchet at a flea market, an old Plumb carpenter.  All other axes and hatchets I have seen are made of solid gold.

What and where did you get that one creek?  I have yet to come across one and can't bring myself to spend the dough on ebay for one.  Looks nice though.  I've always wanted to try one out.  Are you going to make a handle for it?

It's just old school Finnish design wolfy. Axe with built in haft protection. These are hard to come by in the states and I paid accordingly. You can search their culture and glean the importance of these tools to their way of life. I'm going to restore this one and swing it. A nice addition.

Cut a piece out of it and rolled it off the trail. Miles back in the wilderness.

Was out for my first bowhunt of the season.  The Council Tool Velvicut Hudson Bay has found it's way into the pack...I'm liking this the more I use it
