  4. Forgot to say thanks for the positive comments guys. Axe making has been quite a learning experience and we keep learning which is great. There's a lot of good info from a lot of talented guys floating around, every time I watch something I come away with a new technique.
  5. Quite a bit on the surface for clean up, but the profile was forge in. First attempt with this shape eye as well, so we needed to go clean up the eye with files. I need to set a day aside and forge some new drifts.
