Some of my axes.

Haven't been there for a long time. Wanted to show some of my axes.    Design is inspired by francisca and viking styles, mix between two. Material is spring steel with elm handle.

Very nice! The francisca socket has always looked cool to me.

Do you find elm works well as a handle?

Thanks! Yes, elm works really good. Oak is too brittle, ash is ok, if grain orentation is good.

Beautiful work.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Those a sweet Maris….. what are the “sheath” called in the axe world? Yours are as nice as the edges they protect… some of them have belt loops or a ring for hanging ?

Cool! Interesting that bow woods also make good handles!
