Bearded Axe

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I finished an axe - model I like a lot!

This one was a "budget version" - it was made of spring steel adn ordinary mild steel for the eye partially forge welded and mainly welded using mig welder.

Weight approx 500g (1,1lb)

Once I made one like this using more traditonal technicques :)

Nice overall shape. I never thought about mig welding an edge into an axe body.

Good one Kris!  So what exactly was welded using the MIG?

Thank you :)

The eye was mig - welded to main body. I welded in forge first, but then filled up all the uneven places with mig. Then ground and polished.

Yeah, I think so too (but what do I know, besides I really need to get my coal forge running!)
