Hello,

 

Just now joining in here. For this first entry I'll just pass on that the Hjärtum blacksmith Willy Persson, maker of the Daskebackaren, has died. Does anyone know of a successor?

Well, admittedly, a vague and mysterious entry level entry but he, and his predecessors did make a fine axe and in the case there is no one to follow on it is truly a loss to all users of the carpentry axe.
