Axe practice

Recommended Posts

All this talk and pictures of axes, has motivated me to finish an axe I started a while back  That and I'm finally caught up with work, so have some time to play.

 

Inspired by the Biscayne trade axes, but not an attempt to replicate one.  Started with a bar 2 by 3/8 by 10", performance edge is a piece of 5160  First two photos as forged and the last is after a bit of clean up and profiling on the belt grinder.

Nice!  I like that eye better than the actual Biscayne axes.  And, of course, the good clean forging.  I do like to see clean forging. B)
