    You don't mess around, Scad.

    Here's my only HB. It was the Husqy hatchet rehung as a boy's axe. Sweet little limber:

    "The axe was the pioneer's most important tool; a man could walk into the forest with nothing but his axe, yet fashion snares to catch game, fell trees, and fit them into a cabin. He could even clear brush for growing a garden and by holding an axe blade in his palm, he could use the sharp blade in the manner of a knife and whittle with it."

    "In very cold weather Izaak would heat his blade before using it to make it less brittle; when he was through using it for the day he rubbed it carefully with fat. Axe handles often cracked or broke, but there was always a new one charring and seasoning close to the hearth."

    I like using this pattern for rough-shaping work and the factory handle was longer than needed for that task so I whipped this baby up. Hickory with black locust cross wedges. Still a bit of work to do finishing the shape, but it's close enough to be totally comfortable to use as-is now.

    Stickman - how do like that CRKT? Has the handle loosened up with use? Also wondering how much work the factory edge needed.

    I put this Hudson Bay model by Council to work yesterday. This little mule has definitely earned its keep in my gear pack.
