    Hello gents,

    Like most of you, I have quite a few axes/hatchets but these area a few of my favorites.
    Best,
    Rob

    S&N 3 1/4lb Jersey head. 28" vintage handle. I just tapped the butt to get the head a little lower, tightened wedge and cleaned up the head.

    KATCO 1 1/2lb hatchet. Tuned the head up and hung on a 15" handle. Handle fought me every inch of the way, probably should have scrapped it but I am stubborn. Weighs just under 2lbs as is.

    Collins Old Timer 3 1/4lb Connie on a HH. Handle started as an octagon then I sanded the upper portion smooth.

    Rogers 3lb Connie hung by COTS on a handle he tuned from a HH first turning back in 2014. SWEET axe to swing!!

    Bine Rovtar 1080 high carbon carving hatchet with ash handle and custom leather sheath. Literally breathtaking in person. It's my new favorite. It's a little roughed up in the photos because I used it for 4+ hours as soon as it came in the mail.

    How long did you have to wait for that? And do you use it or is it just a decoration? :D

    I ordered it March 2020 and it arrived last week. It will definitely be getting used, just haven’t had a chance yet ;)

    Fun to bust through these small, hard madrone branches.

    Any recommendations on what to do with that marred tip besides sharpen it up best I can and keep whackin?

    New to the forum and still trying to figure it out but here's a grinder mod of a Vaughan 22 oz half hatchet I made a couple months back. Apparently Vaughan's high carbon supersteel is 1080 so it's got that going for it.

    My first attempt at a cross wedge. Hickory split by red oak and flanked on either side by Baltic birch.

    I've also since rehung the Vaughan grinder mod and been trying my hand at leathercraft.
