柄入れとシース – Setting helve and sheath.

I have finished the cleaning, surface finish and sharpening of the axe head, so the setting of helve and sheath making has started. For the surface finish, I have heat set the coat of linseed oil. For helve, I have used the Gorilla glue and oak wedge.
Once the glue is hardened, started the sheath making.

Once the sheath gets dry enough, I will apply oil and give a shine! Can’t wait for test cut!!


  1. Thank you Gorges for your comment and checking my blog!
    Still need little more work on this sheath, but is actually turning out to be better than I expected. So I am quite happy with it so far.
