    Coop.

    Love it. I love chopping, but it has been pretty hot here in the Midwest lately. Need to cool it until the fall or a cooler day anyway. Chopping and sawing..... And drinking mountain coffee. That is what I'm dreaming for.......

    Had this head sitting in my garage for a year or so, so decided to hang it and sharpen it. It was pretty rusted but a vinegar bath and wire brush did it up fine. Made a nice convex edge on it and it should work well for a camp hatchet. Not made in the u.s. but in China so that is a negative but still restored something that can be useful.

    It's an old axe head from Wetterlings. You can still see some of the golden color they used on this head.
    Weight 810g. I will use a 500 mm hickory handle for this head (shown in the picture).

    Job done.
    I cleaned the head, sharpened it and adjusted the handle to fit the head.
    Some closeup pictures. Have not oiled it (BLO) yet.

    That heavy head takes some getting used to, and if you're underhand-chopping big logs, the short racing handle will bark your knuckles on the bottom of the V. You'll throw some serious chips though.

    Finished this one up today. When I got it, it was a complete pitted rust bucket and the poll was beat to.........well, you know. LOL Gone about as far as I'm going to go with it, putting a haft on it and taking it to Bax40's and give it a good work out.





    Hint of things to come. Part of the fun, messing with axes is to try different things, good or bad LOL, so been fooling around with hafts. Skog re-works his HH hafts to octagon and gave me a little hint on a post to give it a try. The one on the far right is a little different...part octagon, about two thirds. sort of hard to see in the pic, but believe me it is very noticeable in person. Also been playing around with different dyes. Have a few more in the works! Thanks for looking!
