I haven't posted any new work in quite a while because of a large commission, but I'm nearing the end of six months of weekends work on this project: A set of bearded axes.     Forge-finished, approximately 5" / 135mm edge and 6.5" / 155mm head length, head weight averages 18 ounces / 510 g. Mild steel body with W-1 edge. 29" / 737mm curly maple handle.     Sterling escutcheon on the back of the handle just below the head with the recipient's initials in Younger Futhark runes.
