Damascus steel head hand forged in Colorado. I made the handle out of Curly Maple and poured in place pewter butt cap. The wood it lays upon is burl Elm. I have a lot of folks asking to purchase them but I find it hard to part with them. So far I have sold four in total.

That is absolutely beautiful…. The Curly Maple accentuates the Damascus steel very well….

This is awesome. It reminds me of mine, I love it. The curly maple makes such a nice handle. The Damascus steel makes for a great looking head and I love the detail in the butt cap. You do very nice work on all of them.

You just need to charge more, so it doesn’t hurt as bad to see them go.

Very nice you’re a true artist. How many man hours do you think you have in it?

Great job on the axe Woodsman, how does one go about creating a ’ poured in place pewter cap’ ?
Also a 2nd question, where can these axe heads be purchased ? I tryed seaching the net for ’ Forest Forge and forrestforge and rogers ranger etc etc ’ and could find only these two;
- neither seems to offer just an axe head.
