    Whilst out camping this weekend I finally got round to starting a new handle for this Axe I'll post some pics/video when I get a chance. It's a fairly simple handle (based around the GB Wildlife hatchet size/shape), not finished yet but most of the shape done etc. Just needs whittling down & finishing.

    Well, once again I would like to thank WoodTroll (Tom) for the Axe head he gifted me, you can see it with the broken handle in my first post.

    I've finally remembered to take photos of it now re-handled!

    It was a fun project, made the handle out of Ash and two Oak pegs in the top. I've kept the barbed metal ring from the original head ready to put in my Oak wedges if it needs it, but it hasn't yet, so here's some pics:

    Good job there Ashley. Been wondering about making a new handle for my little hatchet. But that will be a project for rainy autumn days :-)

    Looks great mate. Love the used quality of the head itself. I'm always getting slated for having a rusty/blemished/tarnished/grotty looking axe
