    Where's the mob at? !!!


    Took my time with this one, got that perfect fit. 30" handle, beats me on the head weight, most likely 3 1/2lbs or so. I gave it a short vinegar bath to get the rust off. I left the pitting patina. I like character. Perfect alignment.

    80 grit. Keeps the grip purchase nice. Any higher and I think it gets too slippery in the hands.

    My collection isn't as big as people might think lol. I have given a few away to friends, sold off the double bits last year so I could buy my camera. Everything I am doing now is staying in the collection though. I want to build it up. I had to buy a wood crate to start storing them in.
