Small pack axe/hawk.

Recommended Posts

This one I made for around camp and general tasks where a small axe is needed.

 

The head is a tapered friction  fit for easy replacement in the field  and the poll is hardened As well.

 

I put the leather to protect the haft and it makes for a comfortable handle when gripped up for finer work.

Thanks fellas,

Josh, steel was from an old crowbar I bought from a farmer who was selling up everything. Not sure if it was originally a crowbar could have been a drill rod drive shaft. In any case it threw good sparks and hardens well.

Thanks guys,

I find splitting wood for a camp fire strangely enjoyable and while you can do it with a knife it is so much more enjoyable with a sharp little axe. I also plan to practice trap making and this will come in very handy.
