    Here is something a little different for me. I have wanted to make a hatchet and after sawing out some larger blades this piece just screamed to be let out.

    Specs:
    .200 Aldo's 1084
    10.375" OAL
    2.9" wide blade
    4.5" cutting edge
    6.25" handle
    Ht by maker in my digitally controlled Evenheat kiln
    Three thermal cycles before quenching in oil
    Green canvas micarta held on with G-Flex, flared tubes for extreme reliability of handle scales never coming off
    The spots around the flared tube is oil from the flaring process, it did not come off after washing with dish soap
    Sheath is not made yet but I plan on it having two straps for horizontal carry and one belt strap for vertical carry

    Asking $170.
    Price includes shipping via USPS Priority Mail to all 50 states with delivery confirmation, others can contact for additional shipping charges
    I accept Paypal, money order, or check. Paypal preferred to [email protected].

    First, "I'll take it," gets it.

    Feel free to email any questions/comments to [email protected].

    Thanks for Looking
    Big Chris

    Really nice job. A side of beef would go in the freezer paper pretty quick with it I'm sure!
