I need to see if I can find a before pic, but I got sick of the sticker residue on my hatchet, and used the wrong goo gone stripping the shit lacquer finish too. So decided fuck it, stripped and sanded down to 400 grit, coated in BLO. The shit paint was chipped and trashy so I sanded it all off the blade and brought it to 400 grit, then applied super blue to the blade.
Now she's sharpened up and ready for some wood. >>1465066
Very nice! Just ordered my first over $100 axe today (19" Gränsfors Burk). Very excited to unleash it on some wood>>1476854
Have a council railsplitter Pulaski head on the way. Will need to make one of these for it. Where do you get you leather from?
