    Default Axes, hatchets and the like

    Since knives has its own thread(s), I thought I'd start something for bigger wood-cutting tools.

    This looks quite nice-


    I was part way into building a shave horse in college before getting pulled into other projects. I went through a phase of trying to sculpt with one type of tool for a given project- I love draw knives.

    I know nothing about axes so maybe I'm stupid...

    Wouldn't it be more secure to mount the axe head the other way? Basically slide the handle through the axe head from the top? Seems like that would be a more secure way of mounting it.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm going to buy stuff from this guy cause...who doesn't need an axe?

    "tactical tomahawks"

    I had to watch that video just to see what in the world you were talking about.

    Here's a new twist on an old tool. The guy in the vid is pretty handy with it. I split a lot of wood every Winter..so who knows...maybe this tool has some promise...

    I had an awesome weekend in the woods with a load of small handcraft business owners, but most of whom work with wood making bespoke furniture.

    Having seen it in this thread, I bought myself a Gransfors Bruk Wildlife Hatchet; and also a couple of Crook Knives (by Mora and Hans Karlsson for those interested).

    with the help of a couple of master timber craftsmen, I was able to turn a small log into a wooden spoonl it took many hours and lots of blood and sweat (seriously, those knives are sharp as hell)

    I really enjoyed working with a different medium for a while, and while Steel will always be my love, there might be room for a bit more timber in my life.

    The Spoon was carved entirely with the Axe, the straight edge Knife and the Crook Knife.
