    That turned out great Coop :)

    Pegs... Those handles are sweet :cool:

    I've got to get off my butt and get some axes hung myself.
    I've got heads and handles...

    It's sad really :(

    I've gotten a couple of axes recently, but they all have hafts.

    And to top it off...
    I've got some really SWEET heads ;)

    Kelly wood slasher I believe. Found this one at a garage sale this week end. It had never been sharpened. I didn't do much just nocked off a little rust,sharpened and rehung on the original handle.

    Your welcome :)

    I've got an old TT FSS Pulaski with what I'm pretty sure is the original handle.

    Previously mentioned TT KATCO, same handle (after some straightening, we'll see how it holds up). I wasn't sure about taking the edge all the way back for the big chip. I'm guessing that if I don't, the metal could crack there right? What if I smoothed out the chip only? Also one of my better handle fits, except for the fact that I can't make up my mind whether it's upside down or not.

    I would clean out he chip and leave it. It will sharpen out in a few years and shouldn`t hurt anything. Looks great by the way.

    It was pitted and mushroomed to all hell so I took a layer off the surface with a belt sander and blue'd it

    Hung it on a 30" octagon, final length was 28.5"

    Tested it on a dead oak limb and it passed. (head didn't budge and it kept a decent edge)

    Sweeet!

    It's amazing how much life there is left in/under some of the really banged up axe heads. If there are not cracks and the eye is not deformed, they can be brought back into really nice condition, although you may lose a couple ounces of overall weight.

    First ever hang on this one, a new carpentry axe from Sweden. It has an ash wood handle sent up to me from down in France very dense hard, must be worked carefully with the sharpest tools because of the rowed grain but gives excellent result.

    Look, I cut into a small hidden flaw, melted some shellac in there and sanded, hoping it will hold.

    A beautiful axe E.DB. , Very nice. That flaw is like a mole on a womans cheek... Not a flaw at all.

    Did you have to repair the break.. or just grind it back to a symmetrical shape? Paint job looks good!
