    Just finished this up for a client. Originally I had finished it out with a curly maple handle, but the client saw another Damascus hatchet that I'd built, and asked for a similar handle. Although it pained me to tear out that nice Curly Maple handle, this one came out nicely. The head is muti-bar twist damascus. The handle is hickory, that has been heat blackened, then finished with 12 coats of Tru-Oil. Overall length is 16 1/2"

    Love the contouring on the handle and really everything else... beautiful work, Ed, as always.

    Wow, nice Ed, you really got that handle shaped nice and I would have never guessed it was heat blackened, it looks stained or dyed.
