Axe of Death
March 06, 2019

It was hot outside, too hot to play (in the shed), so he went through his files on that hot, hot, hot day.

This month’s tool, a nice little hatchet to help poisoning woody weeds, you might need a blacksmith, farrier or someone with an oxy set to make it. I have put this one to quite a bit of use.

You will need a ball peen hammer head (which you can pick up for a couple of dollars at antique and old tool shops).

Heat it and start hitting.

And more….. And more

Turn it around and draw the ball out to a point (good for getting through thick bark)

Clean it up, heat to non magnetic red* then quench in (cheap) cooking oil (*a magnet won’t stick to it)

Final clean, mount and sharpen and one handy little bush regen tool.
