    Default Hults Bruks hatchet restore

    I was out making my antique store rounds the other day and came across this little jem a hults bruks hatchet that needed some love and a new handle . Sorry I didn't take any before pics was to excited to start working on my first piece of vintage swedish steel so I ran to the hardware store and found a decent handle and got to work. There was some edge damage and some mushrooming on the poll but didn't take much time to remedy that with the double cut file. I've gotta say this is one of my best hangs I've done out of the 30 odd I've done and I learn something new on each one maybe in a hundred more I'll be in the big leages with bax and jimbuddy.

    Good job on a fine hatchet, HB is one of my faves!!

    PS I don't think anybody can catch up to Jimbuddy as he lives in what I call AXE HEAVEN BC, and is a real good craftsman too.

    Thirty is never enough!
