    So I'm looking at wood carving axes..
    Just wondering what everybody else who carves, favors?

    I'm right handed but I don't know that I want a dedicated right hand carving axe just now.

    Hults Bruk Jonaker Hatchet 1lb 9.4in Handle
    This axe is currently in stock at a store near me. They told me the Gransfors carving Hatchet they can order for about $200.

    Affordable options?
    Custom makers?
    Thank you...:57:

    I have used the Wetterlings wildlife hatchet for the most part. Great tool

    Who knows about Wolf Creek Forge? I've heard of Lisa's work but don't know much about her axes? I've heard and seen of her strikers too.
