Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Last summer in France in the Loire river my GF found an old hatchet head. I love how it's shaped and when I have some time I'd like to try and give it a new life. Brush up the steel a bit, and rehandle the thing. inscription is hard to read I have no clue what type of handle should go on a model like this. Something straight like a hammer? Or more curved like plain hatchets? Any advise and info on the thing is welcome.
