My first hatchet - gnarly W2 edge

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

this my first axe/hatchet project.  It is mild steel with a W2 bit.  My forge welding skills are crap (especially in my gas forge) so I TIG welded the bit on after a failed attempt, thus the marks (I'm pretty new to that too).  I kind of like it rustic anyway.  I normalized once in ash and quenched once in warm water, then let the colour run back up the piece and cooled it again.  Seems to work (no immediate chipping yet).
