    Axe Making

    I ran across this video on another forum and found it very interesting. It shows the traditional process of forging an axe with a tool steel insert in the blade.

    Re: Axe Making

    That was very very cool Ted. Almost something spiritual about making something like that with ones hands. I looked up his site and saw other videos on how a couple of them make framing chisels as well as knives etc.
    Oh how i would love to mess with a forge.
    He sells those axes for few hundred dollars.
    Would love to own one.

    I saw one similar the other day one of the "How it's made" shows, quite a process to build one.

    Here's another video of axe making-- in Oakland Maine in 1965...shortly before they shut the doors.
