    85346355-3E76-4501-B1ED-61120E198551.jpeg So I’m new to Bushcraft and the journey is leading me in so many directions. I gave this small project a whirl and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
    I’ve done some sanding of handles and polishing a Husqvarna Hatchet but this took a little skill I didn’t think I had. I’m looking forward to some others

    Very nice looking saw. Any build pics?

    I like the corner stove setup too. Gave me some ideas for ours. :dblthumb:

    I think you're modest about your skills. That is a fine-looking saw.

    I also think I like the looks of the wider handles. Does it feel right in hand?

    It does feel good, especial when I rounded the edges. It sits comfortably for sure, for me anyway.

    Thanks
