Forged my first Axe

Recommended Posts

My brother came up for the weekend and wanted to forge an axe.  I had a really old, large bush hog blade that my dad had given me so i cut off a section and forged welded the head after drawing out the metal some.  Came out ok and I learned a ton as this was my first attempt at any type of axe/hatchet.

Fantastic job.  Funny enough, I just found the very first hatchet I ever did any forging on; just a roofer's hatchet that I wailed on for a bit, but it was my first.

 

You always remember your first.
