Thanks for the report.
That is too bad. Even though it is worn out it still has a pretty cool shape to it. What is it about the Connecticut pattern that is so appealing to the eye? I had a small HB head that had lost a lot of toe so I reprofiled it, but it was too far gone already and after spending all that time sharpening and rehanging it the edge was soft as butter.
I agree, the connie is at the center of what I like and compare all to.
When i started on this head, i knew almost from the start, it would end this way...but when i start something i have to follow thru.
So i used the process and experience to learn a little more about steel and the feel of steel.
Its a good looking worn out connie, no doubt
If i remeber, you called it. I will choose a little better piece next time
It was a good experience to learn a little from, that poor old connie
So remember those hickory logs i got around last year? yeah finally getting to process them cause they're dry now.
Apparently hickory discolors if you let it stay on the ground for about 10 months... i didnt have enough pallets to keep them all up. I took about 2 inches of good wood off the grey end before i realized it was just as hard as the normal wood sooo now i know what to do for the other 3 staves
Hickory is not a bad as like birch or poplar, but it's rots pretty quick! Best kept out of the elements.
Went north this weekend to do a little deer hunting. No luck with deer but I did come across a few blow downs that had to be delt with. I was told years ago to never head out on northern Maine logging roads with out a saw or axe. It’s good advice, more often then not I have hade to move a tree or two.
Man uses battle ax to fend off home invader.
Best axe story I've seen in a long time. Too bad he didn't have a Puget Sound pattern. He would have got better penetration with that first blow!
Responding officer, "Why is there a springboard in his trunk?"
Home owner, "I planned to finish the job..."
I find your choice of thread apt and hilarious! Not members discussion thread, or any other applicable one, but let's use that battle axe for what it was meant for! Hahaha. I pity the fool! I'm still smiling..
Thanks for sharing that kick ass story!
Omg I'm dying lol
Just everything about this is so perfect
Is it wrong if this comes across to me as a feel-good story?
See honey...thats why we have axes in every corner of every room
Let's hear it for the right to keep and bear arms! Battle axe ... Battle Creek ... seems to be linked for eternity now.
The Christmas tree didnt even know what hit it!
The guys at the farm loved it and got a good laugh, bound up quite a bit in the sap though so I gotta bring some kerosene next time
Or citrus oil/solvent.
Chippin' away at the stacks this afternoon...
