    I think a good axe is an important part of ones kit, especially when your AO is forested. However, I haven't yet found an axe that suits my needs. I tried to get by on a crappy walmart Pack Axe, but if I ever needed to do any real work, I know that it wont cut it (literally). I'm probably...

    First I was thinking of buying Fiskars, but this one had just as good reviews. Also, the Trial Boss has some serious Viking look and style, the Fiskars is maybe also good, but I wouldn't be too proud to own one of those. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_3n3ol0MbU :)

    I picked up an Ontario SPAX 16 from a milsurp store the other day, and I am trying to determine if I should put it in my Car's GHB. Background: My Truck's GHB does have an 18" camp axe in it, (the kind from home depot), so it doesn't look out of place. It's accompanied by a chainlink saw...
  4. Site Information & Suggestion Box
    I don't think anyone has ever minded the banner ads that help pay for this site, but these new AUDIO ads have got to go -- I can't imagine anyone wants Axe Antiperspirant advertisements blaring from their computer speaker constantly whenever they visit this site! :mad:

    Here is a Cold Steel Rifleman's Hawk I modded. Just figured I would share it. I did some filework on the head as well as a lemon and mustard patina. I wood burned the designs portraying Apache Indian designs from my personal research. All finished up with some gunstock stain and polyurethane.

    I don't know if this has been answered yet and if it has, please direct me to the thread but i'm going to make this short and sweet. My wooden axe handle is always slick and slippery when i sweat. No matter how much i sand it down. How can i improve the grip without affecting the look of...

    I have been working on this ax on and off for a while, I based it off a viking style "Boarding Ax" Cut out with a plasma cutter I used scraps of 1/4" steel left over after up- armoring MTVR's and I believe r234 round bar for the handle, I mainly use it for demolition and it has smashed...

    Since it seems that you and many of the others are quite knowledgeable about pretty much everything, i have a question to ask about vintage/old axes. Figured id ask about one of these Axes I've come across and actually have in my possession at the moment. I can not find any information on it...

    Hello all. Some of you may have seen this axe I recently made in my introductory thread, but I was able to make the sheath for it today and get some better photos of it so I thought that I would share. The sheath is 8 ounce leather.

    So, a long time ago i picked up this Normark Hunter's Skinning Axe: I have babied it over the years and except for a couple of instances of using it for light wood work it has been primarily used to process small game, ie: removing feet , head and tail, even once to help to skin a deer. I...

    Hey everyone! I've been a member of these forums for a while now, lurked plenty, and now I figure it's time I put a little product review out there. Living up North its challenges, and when you're outside when Fahrenheit meets Celsius (at -40 degrees) you most definitely need to find a way to...

    Just picked this up for $25 including shipping on Ebay. I don't know too much about axes as of yet, but did I get a good deal? I believe this is called a half axe, as it has a 24 1/2 inch handle. You can use it one handed but it is also fine for chopping and falling trees. I believe the handle...
  20. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I've had this posted in the blades section, but think it's definitely appropriate here. I took my old, worn & well worked Lowe's Kobalt Hatchet ($14) and used it to practice my restoration skills (in case I come across a nice vintage piece in the future). I sanded, stripped and cleaned...
