Thanks for looking and your comments.

Well Lookout Mr. cause here come the questions!!!

So . . ah . . I guess that means some one else makes those beautifully delicious grained wood hafts, right . . care to share the name W us? Hmmmm?...
Regardless, it works for you, the head looks awesome too!

How do you make a useful cutting tool from Wrought iron, I always thought that it wouldn't work well for that?

Ok Mark i will start with the last question first it's closest:p.

If you look at the photo you can see the dark part where the edge or bitt is, this is a piece of 1080 forge welded in the center of the two ends of the wrought iron which gives you a hardenable edge.

Not at all i found the source of these hafts on the forums by info shared by others they are expensive but my clients deserve nothing but the best:rolleyes:.
