Awhile back I won a Sentry axe head in a GAW thanks to Jakuka.
After way to long of getting busy with other projects, trying to find a good handle locally and just not getting to it as quickly as I could, I finally ordered some handles from HH and went to work on this long overdue project. The head was already cleaned up, but a bit pitted. I worked on getting a good edge, but didn't think I'd be able to get the nice polished look due to the pitting. I went to work with a diamond stone and Lanksy puck and got an edge that'll push cut paper. I had to shave down the handle a bit, because starting off the end of the handle was still a good ways down inside the head. A draw knife and some sandpaper took care of that. I do wish that I'd set the head down about another 1/4" or so. A good once over with some sandpaper on the handle smoothed it out nicely to receive the stain. I gave the wedge a good dose of BLO as well as the area under the head. The handle also received a coat after the stain dried. All in all, I'm ok with it for my first rehaft.
