I have been wanting a hatchet for a wile but just could not find the head I wanted. then I realized I had an old ax that belonged to my father in law and thought that would make a great Pocket Ax. I had a piece ash with perfect grain for it, so I set in.
After feeling it and looking at several pictures I decided I like the look of the faceted handle rather then a fully rounded handle. also in those pictures I saw several with Celtic carving and I had to give it a shot. I had never done this type of carving before but was pleased with the out come.
I am going to have to do things like this to more tools in the future!
If you want to see the build video I put it here
