I took possession of a Gransfors hewing axe courtesy of Jon Warwicker.
Carving axe & Hewing axe.
I'd tried his out when we had a day on our plot a couple of months ago and found it much easier for roughing out bowl blanks than the carving axe. . . he also got it for a 20% discount!
Could the Gransfors standards be slipping? This new axe has a dreadful handle on it - a really rough finish with splintery patches. I may have to make a new Ash one.
