    Modded my Husqvarna forest axe and Gransfors Bruks American felling axe. Torched the handles, oiled, then whip wrapped overstrike collars. I made the collar on the husqvarna larger to aid in choking up on the axe for different grips.

    One picture with flash, one without.

    That's an awesome idea. It looks really good to boot.

    There are pics of this in the today’s carry thread, but wanted to post a couple here as well. Knife on right, five posts back.

    I've said this before, but I do believe that's my favorite one of yours yet. Is that olive wood?

    Thanks. The scales are olive! It has become one of my favorites to work with.

    Built this (except for the lashing rings) simply because I refused to pay 450 dollars for a commercial one.

    $450??? Must be lots of insurance for liability. That is just a few pieces of aluminum.

    Agreed. At least from a consumer standpoint on my part. Olive wood just looks inviting. Has the appearance of being smooth as silk.

    I agree.
    It has that feel in hand as well. Works nicely, but requires new/sharp sandpaper.
