Kept myself busy on a rainy day doing these babies up.
Maybe I'm ignant, but what's the purpose of the notch on the underside of the hatchet blade?
As noted in the item description on the site, it's intended as a nail-pulling notch, as this is a carpenter's tool. However, for woods purposes it's great for lifting pot bails, hooking and dragging old barbed wire fencing out of the way (tons of it in the woods around old farm land up in my neck of the woods) and works great with a few duplex nails in your pack for very quickly putting together and breaking down field structures.
Most people never consider carrying a few nails. Depending on the length of your stay in the woods a few framing nails (3-4" long with a good sized head) can really come in handy. Easily removed from a tree when you leave. Just don't pound it all the way down.
That's what makes duplex nails great. The double thumbtack-like head means that you can pound 'em all the way in and it automatically still has a head standing proud to latch onto when tearing it down. They're commonly used for building scaffolding etc. for that very reason.
I like the axe. Be nice to see a video of it in use, hint, hint.
@The Warrior -- push him man, push him hard.
Hahaha--don't hold your breath! I'm not gonna' go putting scuffs on the merchandise. You'll have to trust me that the pattern chops well. I could do a demo with my Falci one, which is nearly identical.
FAIL. Not the same axe, haha.
Yeah, I know. Same pattern, though. The bit profile is the same, with the only real difference being that the Falci has a textured hammer face and a nail starter notch in the top of it.
I like that machete. How is the steel on it? What is it comparable to?
The steel is excellent. It's a proprietary grade, but they run it at 58 RC and it remains nice and tough.
I want to make me a knife with 5.5" blade with thin stock. I might get one from you just for that project. I just need to pull the trigger on it once I get the money.
Sorry to derail the thread- back to the off topic of nails...
I have been using "bushcraft nails" for lack of a better term, for a couple years now. Trees always seem to have a usabke crack to pound in a couple inches of twig. Unnoticable and biodegradable!
I have a couple smaller picture framing nails in with my sharpening stones to hold them in place on a downed log (tips from a Ray Mears video).
I like 6d duplex nails.
