    Hello everyone I'm new here and somewhat new to axes. I'd like to say that if any of you were bidding on that Plumb Victory Hatchet with the three nails in the top that ended Monday night, it's gone to a good home. Unfortunately the handle, which I believe to be the original, is pretty much shot. I'll try to save it if I can, and I'll DEFINITELY post pics when it's done.

    Default Here's my new hatchet

    I picked it up this week and originally it looked alot like the Ambu's red one on page 226.
    Mine is a Union tool co. made in Charleston WVa. I made the handle out of a hard maple 1x6 I cut the rough shape with a jig saw and finished the rest with a flap disc in a makita angle grinder. I also scraped a little bit with my pocket knife towards the final steps of fitting the head onto the handle, and of course some hand sanding. the finish is minwax stain(multiple colors) and the head was soaked for a few hours in diluted B.L.O.after it was attached to the handle to allow the wood fibers to soak up and swell.

    Default here's another hatchet

    heres one I found a pic of on my old photobucket acct. It used to be a rigging hatchet I cut off the hammer poll, and reshaped the blade to give it a "beard allowing you to choke up on it for close-up work,this one sports a store bought handle.

    I hope my photos don't hog up too much bandwidth,is it better to upload them directly or put the link from photobucket?? I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to computers.

    'Kelly' from my grandfather George, he'd be happy to see the clean up, new handle, shoulder wrap, and use in the snow.

    Is there a link somewhere on how to do this wrap? it seems it'd be a good way to keep some paracord at the ready,and at the same tiime protect the handle.
    I have also thought about wrapping that area with some steel tie wire to accomplish 3 things ...1 add a little weight to the hatchet 2 protect the wood 3 always have a few feet of snare wire handy.The wire I like to use is rebar tie wire sold in rolls at the local building supply store. I keep a small roll of it in my toolbox and some is usually in the console of my truck too.

    I learned the '4 bight turks' from "stormdrane"

    his blog and MANY tutorials are located here: http://stormdrane.blogspot.com/

    he gets full credit for teaching me that wrap.


    that particular knot is here: http://stormdrane.blogspot.com/2012/...g-4-bight.html

    David is the man...that last linked tutorial is a good one. Just stop it every once in a while and look tomake sure you are getting the same thing and also if it is going too fast you can stop it to catch up.
    he has helped me out of a lot of jams.
