Little sneak peak at the next custom in the works. This is a full submersion acid etch, on a @worldaxethrowingleague Ace of Spades, cleaned up with only the finest belts from @red.label.abrasives. I think I am in love. 😍😍😍

Freshly oiled axe handle. This restoration turned out great. Looking forward putting this to use!

Old axe head restoration and re-handling.
It’s a full-sized double bit Western / Lippincott and was covered in dry tar. The handle that came with it was also largely covered with old tar and was rotted. I was happy to see after the tar was removed that there were no cracks in the head. It also has very nice bit edges with no major chips or cracks. Fun project and now I have a great full sized double bit axe in my collection!
#Billnäs #hewing #axe, model number 32, name of the model "Luulaja" (Swedish: #Luleå). 1940s. Luulaja / Luleå is a former Swedish city and now the center of the Luleå municipality. This axe model was presented in two sizes. This axe in the photos is a larger version - model number 32/2. Cutting edge - 160 mm / 6.3 in, weight of the axe head - approximately 1700 grams / 3.75 lb. #finnishvintageaxes
Re-laced the collar on the axe this morning. Tied it off with two tight square knots and trimmed the excess lace off. Looks much better like this. #axe#axejunkies#axerestoration#antiquetools #leatherwork… https://www.instagram.com/p/B6W-tRVHSd1/?igshid=iw342lawcj1o …

These Walters axes for the @bearded_portager are sanded and ready for handle finish. Hope you all enjoy your weekend safely folks.
Another angle of the Homestead restoration. This axe was actually part of a trade deal. Cash talks, but I am always down for a good ol fashioned swap. Don't be afraid to make me an offer. 😉

A fresh coat of oil for this old Hults Bruk before some new leather

Hults Bruk axe with unusual 'H' stamp. From what I've gathered this was only used between 1900 and 1910, over a 100 years old but is still in great shape!

ATTENTION!!! Search crews have located STEEL under the RUST!! #AxeRestoration pic.twitter.com/31HZR30GgB
Birch bark surrounded the rotten remains of the handle. That probably helped to keep the eye in a relatively decent condition.
Bath time. #electrolysis
Half Hatchets are a great balance between form and function-and totally underrated. I'm really surprised that they aren't more popular in the bushcraft scene. The dead straight handle on this one makes it a great thrower, but it can still perform a variety of tasks.

Traditional to the max. Homestead Boys Axe on a 24" hickory stick. Love the look of the patina and a clean edge.
My favorite Snow and Nealley axe. They’ve never been known for their hangs or handles in my opinion and went through a pretty crude era. (1980’s) This one however is as good as they get. (1940’s or 50’s?)Original S&N no. 1, 28 inch octagon handle and a 3 1/4 pound wedge head. American S&N heads have superior steel with a perfect hardness to hold an edge and rarely ever chip or crack. You don’t see a lot of cheek stamped Snows. I will duplicate this handle as it has the perfect size and feel with curves in the right places. #snowandnealley#bangormaine#maineaxe#perfectaxe#axejunkies#axeaddicts#oldaxes#oldtools#axerestoration
My second axe restoration done and I’m quite happy with the shape of the handle and the over all result :) The head is an old and very rusty Mustad Banko Norway found in the garage at the farm and the handle is from an Ash, also from the farm. #axerestoration#woodcraft#therapy
Before and after wirebrush. Old Säters bruks axe. Will make a great bushcraft axe.

Todays flea market find. A #gransforsbruks axe for 30 SEK (3 usd). No mushrooming on the poll. Only needs a fresh wedge, sharpening and some light wire brushing.
