Vintage carpenters axe hatchet hammer custom JESSE REED baseball bat handle
Up for grabs is a cool old carpenters style axe head I had a little fun with and made a handle for........ This is a very old head and is made of killer quality steel, the waffle pattern on the hammer face is still in good shape and the cutting edge is beyond sharp...... Now back to the business, This hatchet is approx. 14 inches long and roughly 1 1/2 pounds total weight little over that..............
I cleaned all of the loose dirt off of this head to expose the natural steel and polished the razor sharp cutting edge and left all of the other age marks and patina in her... There is faint traces of a makers marking but I cant clearly read what it says.......... This hatchet is extremely sharp and great care should be used when opening the parcel when she arrives, I cant stress enough that this hatchet not a toy.................All in all this is a very cool hatchet that feels good in the hand and has a great rebound......... The handle is all hand made and hand turned by me here at the world famous "Uncle Pimpys Axe Palace " here in Springfield Oregon, home of the Original baseball bat handled tools..... This handle is made out of one solid piece of Hickory that I carved some of my signature half round beads into the wood in the grip area, I also blacked out the beaded area for a nice contrast.................. I set the head using both wood wedges and epoxy and got a nice tight fit that looks good on both the top and bottom.............. I sanded the handle silky smooth and then used several coats of clear enamel for the final finish..... I do combine when ever possible.... Cheaper on you and easier on me.... Look for "Uncle Pimpys Axe Palace" on facebook for more pictures and other odds and ends.... Thank you and good luck....... AND REMEMBER FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK, I SALUTE YOU!!!!!!!!
