    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 :thumbsup:

    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.

    Is it wrong if this comes across to me as a feel-good story?
