It's a very versatile axe. The quality of the materials is high and the temper is great.

No knives tonight, fellas.  But I do have some hatchets and hawks.

Condor Greenland Pattern and Wetterling's Large Hunter's axe:


The Greenland's blade is about a quarter inch longer and one inch taller than the Wett.


My hawks: CS Trail Hawk and Pipe Hawk, and Revolutionary Pole Hawk from Crazy Crow.


With their hats on:

I dig the Revolutionary hawk as well.  It's made in India, so it may be hit-or-miss on the quality, but mine is pretty decent.  It chops as well as the others, but it also weighs a little more.

That is a nice set of tomahawks. I've had my eye on the pipe hawks for a while but just haven't quite gotten around to buying one yet. They look like a great candidate for some file work.

Not much to tell. It's an unmarked head about 2 lbs mounted on a 20 inch haft. I use it as a beater in the man cave. Very handy and no worries about its value or durability.

Creek

you dropped some wedges on the floor, in case you've been looking for them.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Made this mini mask for my mini axe over the weekend.  The poll area is open but all the corners/edges are covered.  It's going to be my bag axe, so I just wanted to cover all the metal to protect whatever else is in the bag.

Well, following Tony's post complaining about pictures, here's my hawk, about 70% of the way finished.  I don't have any pictures of the finished hawk on-hand, but I'll post some up later. It started as a Cold Steel Trail Hawk...tootsie-pops and all.

Half Axe's half axe:

I had the head forged from 5160 steel to my specifications by a guy in Maine about five years ago.  Shortly after I received the head, the guy went out of business, citing health problems, and so I have no contact information for him.  It's too bad, he did a great job for me.  I've included the original design specification in the pictures.  I used a small hickory pick-axe handle to make the handle for it.  It was a little bit like work using a hand rasp to shape it to fit.  I made the bit sheath and belt hanger.  Handle OAL is 22 inches.

Of all my axe gear, it is my favorite and has served me well.  Now that I've put the specifications for it out there, GrowlingBear, all you have to do is find somebody to forge one up for you.

Axes for working:



Council Tool Jersey Axe and Council Tool Jersey Miners Axe.  I use the Jersey Axe to split three cords of pine every year.  I envy you folks that have access to hardwoods.


Two No-Name single bit axes.  The one on the left has an "X" mark on one side, the other has no markings.  I use them for limbing logs.

It's a modest start, I have a long way to go to get to UTC's level  :).  Axes are like money, you can never have enough.  I keep coming back to this thread and looking through it, the variety is just awesome!  I have to be careful not to drool on my keyboard.
