    I used a fine grit bench grinder a little at a time to get the shape close to correct but as you can see, had to settle for sort of a chisel tip instead of a point. By working it a little at a time, I was able to avoid getting the metal too hot, and then I finished it off with a belt sander. Thanks. This one will probably just be a wall hanger so I am happy with it. My son's a professional fire fighter - maybe I'll pass it on to him some day. (The "some day" part is in case he sees this post which is entirely possible. :D)

    I hung this 5 pound Norlund last week. I re-used the original handle and refinished it with BLO and tung oil.

    That looks like a really comfortable handle. In fact, the whole package looks perfect. Awesome.

    It's on it's way to Iceland. Ebay sale closed yesterday.

    A lot of the weight of that axe is in the big fat poll.

    I've got an ATCO German made 5 pounder. A little ridiculous. Not sure what to do with it, hang on a short short handle ala a racing axe? :rolleyes:

    I remember when you showed us that head. You sure did a nice job on it. Thanks for sharing your work.

    4 lb Craftsman DB on a Forest King (Link Family) 36" handle. I'll let it set a bit before sawing off the wedge. The head has been around a while; I don't remember what it cost. The helve was $3 at a garage sale today.

    That's really sweet. And I wouldn't sweat the off-center kerf and wedge at all. I've hung axes on handles like that and they've been perfectly solid.

    Yeah, sometimes the off-center wedge is hard to avoid but you're right, doesn't necessarily mean a bad hang. Plus I don't think this handle will be seeing much heavy use anyway. It's a little too "vintage" if you know what i mean. Unfortunately, the sun-cracks in it are pretty deep and seems like one overstrike or power-chop would break it right in half. I'll probably re-haft it on a new handle before too long.

    Nice hang! Where did you get the handle and did you burn the handle yourself?
