    One more pic of the Champion. Starting to get attached to this... the slim 22" handle seems to give it perfect balance.
    Glad I burned my pal's initials on the bottom of the handle or I'd be sorely tested!

    I did a half hatchet on a 24 inch handle. They do indeed feel lively. The lightness always surprises me.

    I've decided to pull the Plumb Victory off the 18" riggers handle and try it on a longer haft.
    I never use a half hatchet, but maybe I'd find a use for it if it was longer.
    Yes, it's an excuse to play with axes, but I'm preaching to the choir here so why not?

    image.jpg 2.25lb GBA. Almost ready for a handle. I'm thinking of a 24" handle. Possibly going to try and make it from scratch.

    First time bucking while standing on a log and the largest log I've ever bucked.

    Do the work, make the mess, get the results. Plumb boy's head hung on a Tennessee hickory house axe handle. I think this will be my new woodcutters belt rig axe. Unknown boy's head with bevels hung on homemade handle. This thing was so pitted and beat up, i cut just over a half inch off the top and bottom and ground quite a bit off the faces. From 2.25lb to 1.5lb. Looks a little rustic to me almost, needs to get a patina again. Falls city Kelly axe, just shy of 4lb on a 28" council tool handle. Things a beast. I have a plumb thats about the same length and weight, this might knock it out of my saw box for a bit. Hanldles still need oiled and then sheaths to make.
