I broke these axes years ago. I just get enough confidence to think to make a handle, so I gave it a try. Wood comes from a reclaimed office door, makes crisp shavings and smells like pepper, a treat to work with. The tricky part is to make an eye that fits with the head with a proper shafting. Edges are dull and I’ll have to grind them before to cut anything, not the hardest part though. The factory axe is here for reference. Finished with linseed oil.
