斧一本目完成!!-One AXE compleated!

Ihave compleated the first one!!!

On the edge side of axe head is polished with brass brush. The backside is heat coated with linseed oil on top of thin patina. the sheath, I was planning on light brown, but after soaking enough wax in, it became like black… well, it is still OK…



Now I got 2 working axes! It looks like this next to Billnäs. I made helve thicker, and seems better fits me this way. If start to feel too thick, then I can easily make it thinner.
However, it is really nice to have self-made helve. It really fits to my hand when pick it up. Also, it gives some sense of security that, “I can fix this if breaks”. As Ray Mears said, “Shouldn’t be using, if you can’t fix it!”.
