    These three were my first foray into re handling old heads. I didn't realise how hard it would be! The 36" Tennessee Hickory handle is a not very exciting 3.5lb head I had laying around, the 32" Octagonal House handle has a 3.2lb Lakeside head from the bay, and the 28" Link handle has a Homestead 2.25lb head I found locally.

    Nice collection of Swamp Rat hawks. The Busse BWM also match perfectly with the KDSHs.

    worked on this plumb hatchet I picked up for $11 yesterday. Rehung it on the same handle. Need to figure out how to fix / repair the sheath.

    Cool!

    I saw something similar in a local antique store but they wanted way too much for it.

    19" hickory from the hickory handle store. Lots of working to get it down but really nice wood.

    Rehandled 1960's Garant axe. This is my dad's axe and first axe I used so making it look original had some sentimental value.

    Cooperhill, that's a nice gesture with the donation!
