    Love the restorations and the leather work. Good to have a hobby and maybe make some money from what you like to do or do you just collect?

    Most everything you see above was commissioned work! I have a habit of collecting as well

    Love your sheaths and etched finshes!

    I just re-hung this family Black Chief on its original haft. Goal was cleanup and put back into service, but I did re-profile the entire bit due to toe wear:

    Not a full on restoration but had to rehang this guy due to an unfortunate event at Bushcraft.

    I did tell @Patrick Rollins he could break it, so I got an 28”octagonal, hand picked boys axe handle and put this puppy on there.

    Now to start the process of treating the wood with BLO (once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year and it will be good)

    Nice job! That's interested that the stamp is so high, they normally do it dead center

    I bought the axe from a mom and pop hardware store in Bethune SC, never paid much attention to the stamp. They had 2 I bought both, gave one away.
