What process is that? Is that parkerizing?
Yup....I think that his axe would look great parkerized...as not to hijack too much.
def agree on the parkerizing but dont have a sand blaster . . . .
Take it somewhere and have them blast it.........shouldn't be expensive.
You can also do a handle form staked leather, I think that would be perfect for this axe
cant figure out how i would end it i cant like bend the handle to it wont fall off
you make make a hidentang end, weld on a threaded pice and put a but plate , and tighten the nut you can use a plain one and locktite
like cut a small bolt or something? and weld it into place?
that is right
have to try it out when i have some spare time project on hold for a bit
i wish i had the time to finish it but my boss/father-in-law went into retirement which is good for him and me but just buying a house and fixing that and running a resturant i have little time to do anything fun till my house is done (never ! ) lol. BUT i did get to use it cutting down some bushes in my front yard. allthough no handle on it for the short time i used it it was well balanced and wet like butter so it will be done someday
something for you to hold on, til you get some free time
Your little hatchet was originally issued by the Bridgeport Hardware Co. in 1934. It had hickory scales, came with a "genuine" leather sheath and cost $3.75. That was a lot of money in 1934. Nice job restoring it.
very nice i love the handle did you make it or buy it
its not mine(for now at least), this was forged by a friend who is a blacksmith
I agree withyou, but he does seem to have some rather odd concrete thinking regarding 'gmo' foods/crops. The rest of his stuff is golden though.
I have the exact same hatchet. My rubber grip is still in good shape, though, so I'll be leaving it on. Most of my red paint is gone, though.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
You've done a very good job restoring that hatchet
But this pic with the (bloody) red blade and the family photoes in the background...
... maybe it's just me, but it reminds of some horror movies.
But yeah, great work
