Something a bit different for me. My First

A good friend and customer had been wanting a hunters/bugout axe. He had been planning to make one for himself but since I was forging yesterday... Well there was this piece of 4140 forklift tine just laying there begging to be made into this.



Head is 5" long, Bit is 3" Length 11"
weight 22oz.

Blade is parkerized. Handle is black canvas micarta, left rough sanded for grip. Pins have been peened and domed. Nice little package if I do say so myself.

That's awesome Chuck!! I love seeing the "This is what is WAS....and this is what it's become!" pics. It always makes me smile when I think of someone who knows nothing about forging, looking at a pic like that, and having that "deer in the headlights" look.
