Hunters ax

Lost interest for over a year with axes. Here's the first one with hopes of doing more. The head was forged from a piece of landing gear from a bush plane. There's a story that goes along with that but won't go into it now. The head is 5160, just over 5" with a 3" cutting edge. Handle is stab. curly hickory and its 14".

I will second that "wow!". I'm a big fan of Raymond's work, big fan of hawks, and a bigger fan of functional hawks. That hatchet/hawk is the nicest design I have seen in a while. Love the curly hickory, love the design, just outstanding!

John, Thanks for noticing this ax! I've got another small ax I will be finishing up today. I'll take a picture of the eye on the next one either late today or tomorrow and post it.
