    Speaking of delaying our gratification, I've tarred my handle on this kirves of Finland strung up now curing in the hay loft. It might be handleable come spring-time with any luck.[​IMG]

    Almost have this one finished; 20191003_151416.jpg

    I was trying to make a slender one and I think I achieved a little too much success! She's a tad thin in the grip. I've got it farther along than this but I ran out of light. Looking forward to getting it finished tomorrow. I'll post it up! Take care!

    Got it finished! Quite a few photos with this one. I used scraps that were left from the 41" db haft I made for the plumb Puget sound falling axe.
    Here's my first pic; [​IMG]

    Here I had hung it and had just cut the excess off the swell. [​IMG]
    Here it is finished without oil; [​IMG]
    And all done; [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it. Even thought it's thin the swell is plenty large enough and it feels good to swing it. Also it has a full 2" eye! On a small hatchet like this!? It's awesome that thing is never coming loose! It's a good little chopper. Thanks for checking it out!
