A hello and a picture of my first RR spike hatchet

Looks good for a start! One suggestion though, if I may, is that you may need to dress your hammer judging by the sharpness of the nicks. It may be the picture or I may just be out to lunch but they look fairly sharp. By dressing your hammer and smoothing out the sharp edges they put on a new hammer, you'll notice a HUGE improvement in the smoothness of your hammering. Of course, hammer practice is key too so you're hitting it with all the face, not just an edge too but that comes with time and there's nothing you can do about that. Those sharp edges though can become a stress point for cracks. Keep up the good work though you're doing great!
