Hey Ray, here's a pic of that monster with the "fullers" I was telling you about... 23 inches OAL, 16 inch blade from 1065 with cord wrapped integral socket handle. It's about 2.5 inches wide at the widest part of the blade.

Thanks Ray. I started with 1/4 thick by 1 1/2 inches wide. It tapers down from 1/4 to about 1/8 inches thick towards the point... didn't want it too heavy. I used my new hammer on it quite a bit.

Is that hammer any good? :D Where is the Beast going to be living? For some reason I see it really being used.

Any word on when the new hammers will be ready?

Lorien, Glad you got on the right track. I keep thinking you get lost on those other forums. :D While I was in the shop earlier you actually crossed my mind. Must have been that Canadian connection....... 2thumbs

Tai, what new hammer did you get? I remember seeing a picture of you loading up your 500pounder some time ago.

Thanks folks!

Ray, the hammer was great!

The guy who this monster is for definitely plans on using it.

I'm not sure what the exact weight is, (don't have a good way to weigh it),... but it feels good in the hand.

Nice chopper Tai! It has a look that stirs my primitive favorite brain files. Got a little of the philipine kampilan look, only shorter. They used lots of rattan and braided fiber wraps coated with resins on the handles of their using blades. Kept wood handles from splitting out, and gave a good grip during heavy and rather messy use. I have an old french heavy machete that's similar only has a wood handle.:cool:
