Hunter and a Chopper

Recommended Posts

I've had the small hunter done for a week or so and just finished up the bow tie ax today. The hunter has a 4" 52100 blade, salvaged steel and wrought iron fittings and a sambar stag handle. 8" overall. The ax has a 1065 head and oak handle.

Nice!  I really like the hatchax.  Slit and drifted, or wrapped?

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Great work Mr Richard; I love that hunter, but then again, that goes without saying.   I always love how your knives do not have ricassos, and are better looking for it.

That is a tiny ax!  Beautiful work, as usual.
