Octagon haft is beautiful. How does that feel in the hands?

I agree with the others. That haft is sweet. Having never seen one like that myself I too would be curious about how it feels.

It feels...not great to me. I was getting hot spots in my palms while I was working it. Probably like anything else. You'd get used to it. It's a cool looking haft.

Time for a few more i feel

My beater axe, made by Am-Tech, cost $5.00 and gets the living daylights beat out of it, more on it here http://kepisbushcraft.blogspot.com/2012/02/beater-axe.html



better view of my Kentish pattern with a short helve that i carved from a solid piece of Ash, i use this for carving, works a treat.



and not really an axe, but a billhook, i use these all the time when im working in the coppice woodland, more on billhooks here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billhook



This one was last used in the damp and stored in the shed outside,  hence the surface rust

LOL. I have a closet that is getting to be very full. I've stopped buying axes because I have no where to store them. It is funny, here in NY, the first thing people think of when they see an axe is "Hey, that guy must kill people". No one ever thinks, "Hey, he must chop a lot of wood". :)

I got it from King's Forge: http://kingsforgeandmuzzleloading.com/page9  I replaced the original handle because it was super thin and flat.  It was also just pressure fit.  I replaced it with a piece of a warped axe handle that is wedged at the top.  The overall length is 10-1/2" and it weighs .81 lbs.  I think it will make a nifty bag axe.

Damn nice choppers guys 


Here's a couple of mine and a couple I am slowly redoing  for a  friend. Hoping to  get a  raw branch of ash from another friend to carve up a handle for  the big old plumb that belonged to a friends father. I have no idea how old it is but my  friend is mid 50s and he said his stepfather had it  long before he was  around so guessing has to be near  60 plus years old. The hammer hatchet was also his stepfathers and I am going to restore it  to

The  hawk is mine and also a pic of the one gifted to me  by upthecreek :)


Big old plumb handle bout 36 inches long guessing she's gotta be a 5 pounder she's heavy but damn fun lol












Plumb hammer hatchet great little  tools





the  head cleaned up a bit




Now my  toys  :D

This is the little guy I got from upthecreek. Slowly working on  redoing it up gonna rehandle  and  getting her prettied up   :D






And now my hawk so far the usual mods stripped the paint  working on getting a better edge on it  and doing some light  carving on the handle among other decorative mods I have in mind



My initials done up in ancient Celtic










That's my  collection  so far minus my  friends axes of which I am hoping to acquire  from him :D

Digging that Husqvarna/Hults Traditional Forest Axe (2011/12 model).  I wonder if Husqvarna is going to come out with a mid-size between that and their hatchet, a la GB SFA... Either way, sweet axes at a great price.

I doubt it. Husqvarna does not seem to have it's heart in the axe business. They are a huge company. If you want something in that price range, and are willing to do some work, you may want to check this out: http://woodtrekker.blogspot.com/2010/11/cheap-alternative-for-gransfors-bruks.html It has worked very well for me.

Thanks Trekker.  I actually read that blog entry quite some time ago, and thought "Man, that would be sweet, but I just don't think I want to do the work!"

I really enjoy following your posts/blog, though.  Good information from a guy who's clearly use a LOT of axes.
