The head is bookmatched rock maple. The handle is figured purpleheart. The 5 degree angle cut on the head was done with the bandsaw and the majority of the wood taken off the handle was removed with the 3/8” roundover bit on router. The final shape on the handle was obtained with a spokeshave. I used my blockplane to chamfer the head. It weighs 2.25 lbs and and feels really comfortable in my big hands.
