    Gaga that double bit is sweet, have you sharpened it in the traditional fashion?

    First one is a hudson bay type ax with a 4 !/2 lb head. Got it on ebay for $20 'cause no one else wanted it (or no one else was dumb enough to want it). The length over all is 35". The head length is 8". And the blade itself is 5" long. In the second pic, you can see where a larger soft piece of steel was wrapped around a smaller hard piece during forging. It shows as the curved line. The blade profile, as I recieved it, was even more curved than it is now. The problem is how to balance a perfect profile with a worn one. The handle is a pick/mattock handle laboriously trimmed down and patterned after a GB colonial ax. No other handle could near match the huge eye of the head (probably large to begin with and deformed even larger with long use) and even this one was a bit shy. It's a work in progress and has been for a good while. Cut really well the couple of times I had her out, with all that mass, but not something you would want to use all day.

    The second is a single bevel hatchet, also known as a side ax. One side is flat with no bevel and makes chopping a straight or square section on a round log a relative breeze because the flat back acts as a guide. This one is 12 1/2" long because the handle I got in the mail was a piece of shit and thats all that was truly available out of a 15" handle. The extra length allows you to do heavier work, but much of the time this kind of hatchet is used for finer work with the hand right next to the head and the index finger extended out across the head. This particular head is 5 1/2" long and 4 1/2" along the bit or blade.

    A few gaga choppers, after staining. The smaller one has about six coats of plain tru-oil gun stock oil, the larger 3 coats of ???? something, (leftovers from when i redid my caplock)

    that lil' Plumb hatchet is a sweet carrying piece.

    Thumbs up

    i'm happy you enjoy them , i know that the small hatchet will serve you well because it has all the benefits in one small package: not to light not to heavy wide cutting edge and wide butt and you can clearly see every cut you make and you have a big open angle between the heel of bit and the end knob
    - and now they look like you use them for the last 25 years , let me know how they hold the edge after more usage, please
