Another forged axe (yes another....)

Recommended Posts

Hello, i recently finished my journeymans-test, and so have a bit of time to focus on axes again.

So here is another one:

Edge length is 100mm (4") - total length is 475mm (18,7") - weight is 885 grams (just under 2 pounds)
The head is forged from a solid block of mild steel, with a slit and drifted eye.
The edge has a laminated ck60 cutting edge.
The haft is ash from the local sawmill.
As forged:

A bit of grinding later:
D46E1C6E-5F37-460F-AE90-2E2059027CAA_zps
and finished:

a comparison with the well-known GB sfa:
