I have a 2 pound axe head (872 grams precisely; 1.9 lbs). I'm going to buy a 24 inch West Woods Axe Handle for it, but they are currently out of stock. Does anybody know when they will be back in stock? In the meantime I will clean the eye of the axe, as there is a bump on the inside. When I get the handle I will shape it and fit it to my axe. I will use the wedge that came with the handle. I will soak it in BLO first before driving it home. To drive the wedge in I think I will start it with a hammer from the top, then turn the axe over and support the wedge on a wood block and hit the handle to drive it in. Then I will turn it over again and wack the wedge a few more times. Next I will use the axe a bit, just give it a few swings and check if all is well. If all seems good, I will give the wedge a few more hits an then cut it off. Lastly I will soak it in BLO overnight in a ziploc baggie. Then I will clean the axe head and get the oil off. Lastly I will finish sharpening it to shaving sharp, oil the handle and the axe head and use it! Thoughts on what I mentioned, oiling the handle and axe head and any other tips and tricks will be really appreciated. Constructive criticism is welcomed. I am really excited to get this axe ready to be used again. I will post again when I eventually get the handle and hang it. Thanks in advance!
