    Default Refurbished Vintage Axes

    My 15yo son recently refurbished his grandfather's camp axe and rigger's axe with new ash handles (hand carved from a victim of Emerald Ash Borers).

    Sure. If anyone has old axe heads they'd like to donate to a budding teenaged craftsman or would be interested in having him re-handle something, shoot me a PM.

    Your son might enjoy watching Ben Scott on YouTube. Plenty of opinions and he mumbles a bit, but he loves axes.

    I thought I'd be opening a thread on where to buy or sell axes and was curious about what kind of nonsense the vsalon would get up to. Instead I find this much much cooler thread. Thanks for posting.
