Awesome process pics! I must ask, where do you get your inspiration from? Clearly it's something of Norse origin, but what feeds that fire? 

 

I know some people draw their inspiration from novels, movies, videogames, history, etc. Mine tends to be a combination of all. But I'm very interested in what inspiration helps you design and forge these beautiful axes!

Again, very nice Chris!

Thanks for posting!

I am thinking of trying a tomahawk from a rasp that a friend gave me and I was wondering what pitch to turn on the handle.

Hi T. J. you certainly can heres a couple i forge a while ago and a rasp knife to.

not sure what you mean  about pitch .

I meant the taper of the handle.

Hi T,J. watts .

None of mine are round or turned . 

I use  tear drop shape i prefere that style instead of wedging .

try Kane  over there they sell drifts 

 

. Heres  a view of a rasp folded , welded and the tear drop shape  not sure of how much degrees  tho .
