Title: Axes, Hatchets and Tomahawks
Post by: KiLRoy on February 01, 2020, 12:32:14 pm
Hardy pray tell - whats going on with your axes? Where do they come from, differences, use. But most importantly where do i order :laughing4:

I am drawn to Scandinavian and Native american axes.  I know about nothing about em though.  Would like a utility camping ax for light/ medium wood chopping, branch clearing and general camp use.  Some simple utilitarian, but with a bit of fair if you know what i mean. Some beautiful but practical.  And protection on the handle for all my misses.  Small, light..

Please share the knowledge

Ok - Short story. My grandfather believed that every man should have a good knife and a good axe. His axe was strapped behind his seat in his old Land Cruiser and I got to know from a young age what worked and what did not, as I tried my hand at making my own out of old leaf springs etc.
I would make the following suggestion: Buy either a Cold Steel or CRKT axe or tomahawk as a starter.
I like the tomahawks as they are relatively light, They chop & cut like an axe, but they have the classic look of hickory wood, and it is also a fantastic weapon. You can then modify, and detail it as you please. Leather is seriously cheap, as is the other stuff that will eventually find it's way onto the axes or tomahawks you modify.
I regrind mine, as I do not like the makers mark on the blades. I also use perma blue after the grinding to give the blades the used, fallout look.
I often burn the hickory handles to achieve the same weathered look. I will pm you the link to the supplier - let me know which shape you are interested in, as I have tried them all, and can save you school fees.

Im strange...

Folders i will buy

Fix blades only hand made - i dont have many, actually only 3, but all hand made - from here or other places - https://www.sharpedge.co.za/custom/handmade-knives. For utility knives go to a lessor known craftsman.  I think the prices are a steal for proper handmade knives.  And you support the craft



Axes, i will prefer hand made. - dont know much.  Please tell me more.

Sure, I understand. Unfortunately, I only wish I could have been a blacksmith. Hein, I think you must get a blacksmith to create the steel head for you. Not sure which steel (Damascus, Tool steel etc) you are going to use, but I understand that it would either be a Viking or Native American shape. You can then specify exactly which grind you are looking for and then you do the rest yourself. The wood, leather sheath, handle leather, strapping, etc is the fun part.
I will upload some closer pics of some of the tomahawks in about 30 minutes as I am on the road now.

Hardy asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I told him that I really wanted Michael Kors Sporty Citrus perfume.
This is what He made me...
ďFor chopping Mopani wood on the bike tours, because the riders will be too tiredĒ - He said.
Canít blame him for being practical, I suppose.

Hardy pray tell - whats going on with your axes? Where do they come from, differences, use. But most importantly where do i order :laughing4:

I am drawn to Scandinavian and Native american axes.  I know about nothing about em though.  Would like a utility camping ax for light/ medium wood chopping, branch clearing and general camp use.  Some simple utilitarian, but with a bit of fair if you know what i mean. Some beautiful but practical.  And protection on the handle for all my misses.  Small, light..

Please share the knowledge

Ok - Short story. My grandfather believed that every man should have a good knife and a good axe. His axe was strapped behind his seat in his old Land Cruiser and I got to know from a young age what worked and what did not, as I tried my hand at making my own out of old leaf springs etc.

I like the tomahawks as they are relatively light, They chop & cut like an axe, but they have the classic look of hickory wood, and it is also a fantastic weapon. You can then modify, and detail it as you please. Leather is seriously cheap, as is the other stuff that will eventually find it's way onto the axes or tomahawks you modify.
I regrind mine, as I do not like the makers mark on the blades. I also use perma blue after the grinding to give the blades the used, fallout look.
I often burn the hickory handles to achieve the same weathered look. I will pm you the link to the supplier - let me know which shape you are interested in, as I have tried them all, and can save you school fees.

Ok, shot - send that pm plse.  So basically buy and mod yourself?  Wood handle replacing?  That kind of thing?

@Kilroy

I am posting a few links from a guy in the states who does custom tomahawks from either CRKT or Cold Steel donor blades.

Viking Valhalla


Cold Steel Spike Hawk


Cold Steel Norse Hawk


Knotted Frontier Hawk


Attached you will find pics of the donor blades with hickory handles.

The nice thing about these donor blades is the fact that you wont have to do any special heat treatment on it.
Hopefully some of the guys here will also try their hand at making their own axe or tomahawk.

PS - The guy's accent is a bit heavy on the ears but he does a great job :thumleft:

Baie goed - Die' Tomahawk is die perfekte all rounder.
Ons het Mopanie bo in Namibia, en die Hawk split, chop, strip etc soos 'n droom.
Ekgaan vir jou een stuur om te probeer. Besluit of dit vir jou werk, en bou daarna jou eie. 
Title: Re: Axes, Hatchets and Tomahawks
Post by: KiLRoy on February 02, 2020, 05:14:30 pm
My oningeligte gut feel.

Like die eerste finish meer.

Like die hawk so swaar as moonlik

Like nie te bree blade nie. Moet kan split

Like a nice natuurlike taper

Like defnitief die hamer aan die ander kant. Nie die spike nie. Ook nie niks nie.  Twee redes. - tent penne en ander jobs. Om bo op te slaan wanneer jy split.

My kop is watter indeemse hout ek sal ek gebruik vir die handle.  Fok dis nice...

Ok, mind made up. Gaan die hawks n gou gee.  Fok dis exciting.

Beide Hein.  Ek is liewer vir die kleiner handbyle waarvan die gebruik eintlik onbeperk is.  Jy kan hulle gebruik van selfverdediging, slag van karkasse, sny van groente, split van hout en so kan jy maar aangaan.  As jy hom net wil uitstal word die outjie mooi opgedollie dan raak hy eintlik onprakties vir gebruik, maar lyk mooi op vertoning vir jou versameling of by jou bar ens. 

Hier het ek byvoorbeeld een gemaak vir Alegro wat die byltjie net wil gebruik in sy bar vir suurlemoene sny.

Did Tomahawks is baie goedkoop in did States, ek koop n stel SOG gooi Tomahawks en speel met dit (3 in n stel) terwyl die ander ouens weer boog skiet of wat ookal.
As ek nou weer oorgaan sal ek weer n stelletjie koop en dalk n boog ook vor die reŽn dae wat ons nie kan werk nie.
Lekker van SOG is dat hy baie goed gebalanseerd is, en dan sy skerptheid behou vir lank.
Die een wat ek by die huis het kom van Iraq af, ek is baie heilig op die outjie en kap niks met hom. Ek het nie wapens nie en dit is my enigste lyn van verdediging as n skelm dit tot in my kamer sou kon maak wat ek hoop nooit gebeur nie. Ek weetnie of ek n man of n muis sal  wees die dag as ek in n hoek gedruk is en net n Tomahawk in die hand het.
Ons het in n marine basis gewoon en ons Psd manne moes verpligte saam hulle skiet oefening doen, en dan ook opleiding (close combat) met handwapens - Tomahawks en mes. Dis waar ek geleer het van die kwaliteit van SOG waarby ek sweer vandag.

Ek het lanklaas twee mense gesien wat mekaar se geselskap so geniet soos Louis en Nannie (Mnr en Mev Visarend) vir die wat hulle nie ken nie. Beide is lief vir staal, hout en leer. Nannie moer nie vir Louis te hard oor die hoeveelheid geld wat hy op messe en byle spandeer nie, solank hy so af en toe vir haar ook 'n mes koop, en 'n byl maak.
Louis het binne 'n week nadat hy by my huis was reeds twee mooi byltjies gemaak en dit gekomplimenteer met Nannie se leer skeppings.

Hein, ek dink jou liefde vir messe, byle ens kom al 'n lang pad. Ek het dit opgetel in die ander thread wat op die forum was. Enjoy, en weet dat jy nog baie byle gaan maak vir jou pelle.

Ek dreig al lank om met die leer ook te begin.  Kom ons kyk maar.  My liefde vir vuurwapens en messe het begin toe ek my eerste Man/Magnum gekry so in st4.  Meestal maar gedroom, maar ook darem bietjie gedoen.  Byle is n nuwe ding, alhoewel ek altyd sulke klein kampbyltjies gehad het.  Hawks is heeltemal nuut

Ja Nannie hou hom jonk :biggrin:

Ek skeer al jare met single blade ou masjiene en seep met kwas. My huidige een is. US made Guilette van so 1940 odd. 3de jaar wat Guilette bestaan het vlg sy reeksnommer. Niks fancy, net oud.

An armed response security guy and ex police officer told me there is new legislation wrt axe/Tomahawks used in either crime (gewelds misdaad) or self defense - he mentioned bows are also put under the spotlight.
Keep in mind axes are used and have been used for a number of years already locally especially on farm attack's and that I have sadly witnessed in the EMS.
It would be interesting to see what they stir up  >:(

Louis, vertel my bietjie meer van daai byltjie heel regs in jou foto.  Hy praat met my.

Daai is my 2de byltjie wat ek gemaak en en een van my mooistes volgens my.  Ek het ongelukkig geelhout handle gemaak en ek dink nie die handle is sterk genoeg gewees nie. 

Ek het intussen die spesiefieke byl se kop gebruik om vir Nannie 'n kampbyltjie te maak.  Sy besit hom nou en die byltjie het so effe 'n gedaanteverwisseling ondergaan.   :biggrin:

So lyk hy nou.  Ek gaan later, as ek mag, elke byl wat ek gemaak het se storie hier wys.

Some of the tools needed, with a grinder or two.  I even used the belt sander to help on certain curves.    My latest addition is a belt grinder made by a friend on this forum.    Sadly, since I got the belt grinder I did not have time to attempt another axe.   :patch: :biggrin:

Most probs got it up north in the old Caprivi region.  They use it there often for all sort of tasks.  Was always looking for one and missed and opportunity to buy one, thinking I would get another one further on, no luck.  Eventually got a similar one in Botswana.

Another secret.  I like restoring old potjies.  Jy weet potjiekos potjies.  Maar net Falkirks. Gee hulle gewoonlik weg. Als so 3 gedoen.  Dis weer tyd.  Ek soek oues.  Soek no1 driepoot, no 10 en 14 platboom.  Ek sukkel maar met die proses. Weetie of ek dit regdoen nie.  Aan die einde bak ek hulle in die oond met olie binne en buite.  Dan loop ek maar weer droog in die slaapkamer vir so paar weke

Sal n thread nog eendag begin. Nie hierdie een highjack nie.  Om n ou pot weer mooi te maak gee my baie plesier. Daar is net iets eenvoudig en nederig in n pot. Ek hou daarvan

O, hoekom ek dit noem. Dit laat my dink aan wat jy met hierdie ou geroeste byle doen. Dis werklik pragtig op n vlak wat moeilik is om te verduidelik. Lelike eend na pragtige swaan...

Dis nou presies waar die ding jou vang.  Ek het al vir ouens byle begin maak en soos ek werk met daai stuk metaal stop ek net daar en vat 'n ander bylkop en gaan aan.  Daai een waarmee ek begin het bly myne, ons het "geconnect".  kan jou nie vertel wat dit is nie, dis maar net so.

Mooi man Hardy - sal laaik om notes the exchange.  Ek sukkel om die pot weer Ďswartí te kry dieselfde as die res waar ek gegrind  het.  My een lieflingspot het ek in kak kondise by pantjieswinkel gekoop, sy rim het so 5mm diep chip uit gehad. Ek moes die hele  rim afgrind om die deksel te laat seel.  Daai rim is is nie so mooi swart soos die res nie. Tel ook makliker n roesie op.

Louis ek het n gedagte.

Jy bly mos daar naby Xhosa wereld. Daai madalas is koning met stick making. Gewoonlik met olienhout - wild olive. Hulle kerf oof daai diamond patrone.  Sal laaik van so hef op my byl?  Maak bietjie nuwe vriende dan kry jy vir ons n supplier of drie.  Ek sal ook laaik van n nice stick.  My laaste een uit olien gekerf op my vrou se oupa se plaas in kammieskroon. Wetie waar ek hom gesit het nie.

Or does anyone else know where to find/buy these?

San die handle bietjie paracord wrap.  Nonsense is net dat mens nie dan die kop kan afkry nie.  Dis nou terwyl en wag vir die olienhout handle.

Hardy, as dit oriaat is met Louis stuur ek my spaar handle af vir Joggie. Hy het dan n sample vir n olienhout handle as jy ook belangstel.  Dis mos maar standaard size.  Ek sal myne so 5cm langer verkies.

En natuurlik skerpmaak.

'n Tomahawk se kop is veronderstel om los te wees - sodat jy in die veld 'n ander steel kan maak as hy breek. (of so lui die legende)
Ek plak dit met 'n epoxy vas, nadat ek die kop losgetik het om van die swak gom wat hylle gebruik, ontslae te raak.

As jy jou tyd vat gaan daar bitter min skuurmerke wees. Onthou dat 'n well worn disc beter werk.
Yes, as jy klaar gegrind het, gebruik skuurpapier en water. 100 grit, dan 200, dan 400, dan 800 of wat jy ookal het. Gebruik baie water, en skuur proggresief ligter.
Jy gaan moer baie leer met die eerste een.  :thumleft:

Hein -  I tried the paint stripper method to remove the DLC coating of one of my stock tomahawks yesterday. I don't like it and I think it creates more of a mess than anything else.The grinder method works much easier and quicker. I cleaned it up and gave it an over-hit leather jacket with a leather wrap.This is the spike hawk and you will struggle to get a better close combat & self defense weapon.

NNNNOOOOO - That turned into a sticky mess.

Sandpaper - start with a very rough grit and work your way up. Boiled linseed oil works really well. - Raw linseed oil turns the handle reddish which looks shitty

Ek hardloop bloots net om die gemors af te kry.  As jy wil blinker maak dan rubbing compound / wax.

Decisions

Bench grinder - for rough grinding, cleaning, stripping polishing.  Which one?

https://www.adendorff.co.za/?post_type=product&s=Bench+grinder

Then after payday - Tampaní band grinder?

Thoughts?

I would not go with a bench grinder. Normal small hand grinder is more versatile imo. I know VA will disagree

No, agree with hand grinder and flap disk, the bench grinder is for the lazy people.   :biggrin:

Daardie klein hand-byltjie onder regs is nou maar net die oulikste ding met 'n lem!
Net die ding vir 'n hout-werkswinkel.

Is die vervaardiger se stempel daarop?

Ek dink daar is 3 of 4 van hulle.  Ek laaik ook daai kleintjies.  Weet nie of die stempels nog op is nie, gewoontlik is als toe van die roes en kom eers helder uit soos ek skoonmaak.  Dis gewoontlik waar ek dan sentimenteel raak oor hulle.   :eek7: :biggrin:

Hein -  I tried the paint stripper method to remove the DLC coating of one of my stock tomahawks yesterday. I don't like it and I think it creates more of a mess than anything else.The grinder method works much easier and quicker. I cleaned it up and gave it an over-hit leather jacket with a leather wrap.This is the spike hawk and you will struggle to get a better close combat & self defense weapon. This one is a give away to any of the members who wants it. Keep in mind that you would have to pay for the courier costs to your address..Who wants it?

Visarend and Kilroy excluded of course

On second thought.  Just buy the Tampan belt sander and go and visit Groenie for the head. Im after the milk, not the cow.

Bra Groen se ons moet die kop sandblast.  Hy sal dit vir sy pel vat. Toe bring hy bier uit en ons raak aan die kak praat.  So behalwe vir 3 messe se lanyards wat ek gevleg wonder ek waar die dag heen is want die bylkop is nogsteeds by my. Het darem skuurpapier, boiled linseed en flap disc gekoop.

Hardy sal beter weet maar sover ek weet word meeste byle gemaak van meduim na high carbon staal.   Wat ek ook sien is dat nie die hele kop gehaet treat word nie maar net die lem gedeelte. 

Soos ek werk met die ou byle sien ek dan ook dat die lem gedeelte die hardste gedeelte is, wat vir my se dis net daai gedeelte wat verhard is.

I don't like it and I think it creates more of a mess than anything else.The grinder method works much easier and quicker. I cleaned it up and gave it an over-hit leather jacket with a leather wrap.This is the spike hawk and you will struggle to get a better close combat & self defense weapon. This one is a give away to any of the members who wants it. Keep in mind that you would have to pay for the courier costs to your address..Who wants it?

Louis, vertel ons van die ontmoeting.  Gaan die man vir ons steeltjies maak?

Yip, die man ontmoet.  Hy was eers so effe skamerig in die begin maar toe hy eers sien ek stel basies belang in dieselfde goed as hy, toe is die gort gaar.  Moer nice gekuier en gesels en groot planne is gemaak.  Hy bly net buite Keiroad om 'n klein plasie so 20hektaar.  Het sy eie beeste, skape, bokke, varke, hoenners en die lot.  Die ou se kennis is verstommend.  Hy ken sy hout in rou en behandelde vorm.  Sy kierries is asemrowend.  Hy het 'n simpel lewe, geen komplikasies nie en doen omtrent als homself.  Van sy eie seep tot eie botter, groente, you name it, hy sorg vir homself.  Hy hou ook natuurlik van kosmaak en pekel sy eie vleis en maak bacon ens.  Ek laaik die man kwaai, ons het goed ge-connect.   

Hy het jou steeltjie gehou en gaan vir jou ene maak uit olienhout.  Hy gaan dan ook nog hout verskaf wat ek dan kan gebruik vir stele, olienhout en nog ander hout soorte wat hy opgenoem het.  Flippen mooi hout.  Hy het my gevra om vir hom 'n byltjie te maak.  Ek sal die week dit maak.  Hy kuier hoeka die naweek by my plek, so weet nie of hy al dan jou steeltjie gaan bring nie.  Sal by hom uitvind.   

Hy stuur groete aan julle se mense en hy het my vertel van jou k@k toe jy jonger was.  Ek moes hom egter reghelp en seg jy het nog nie verander nie, nog dieselfde Heinie.   :eek7: :lol8:  :lol8:  En natuurlik laaik hy sy bier net soos jy van joune.  Hy is nie skaam om sy dors te les nie.   :biggrin:

O ja, hy se julle moet kom kuier, maar julle moet voor die tyd laat weet.  Hy praat van voorbereidng van 'n spit ens, hy wil nie onkant betrap word nie.  .   :patch:  :patch:

Amper vergeet ek, hy restroureer ou potte ook.  hy was hoeka besig met een toe ek daar aankom.

I'm leaving tonight for the USA and will keep an eye open for nice Tomahawks and related items and post pics whenever I get to see them.

Tom, wanneer kom jy weer terug, en sal jy plek in jou koffer he wanneer jy doen?.

Ek kom 14 Desember terug, en kan n ekstra sak incheck vir usd 100 ekstra. Delta het ongelukkig nou hulle bagasie gewysig na 1 x sak van 23kg en een maal hand bagasie van 7k, met die opsie om n 2e sak in te check teen usd 100 met n maks gewig van 23Kg.
Ons kan nader aan terugkom tyd gesels en dan kan ons kyk hoeveel spasie/gewig en n besluit maak.  :thumleft:

Ek wil graag 4 knipmesse koop wat eers einde Oktober / begin November klaar sal wees. Reg so - praat later

Sy manier van sit met pyp in die hand, is nog net soos ek hom laas gesien het.

Ek kan nogal glo van die manier hoe die ou leef........................hy was nog nooit 'n stadsmens nie.

Hy het my vertel van daai en die Johny Clegg musiek.  Snaaks genoeg, hy het 'n besonderse uitdrukking op sy gesig gehad toe hy van die stories uit die verlede gepraat het, so al asof hy wil teruggaan na daai dae of baie verlang na daai dae. 

Jy en Oppie verduidelik presies soos ek die man opgesom het.  Ek is innig dankbaar julle het my op sy pad gesit.  Ek kan voel ons gaan groot vrinne raak.  Ons het rofweg 4 ure gekuier en toe ek en die vrou daar wegry het beide van ons gesÍ, die se mense is ons tipe mense.

Ek dink daaraan om vir my so klein full-tang kerf byltjie te laat maak soos die Esee Gibson axe.
Ek het klaar die Husky vir as ek meer gewig wil swaai. Hierdie outjie wil ek slegs gebruik vir "hewing", soos die Engelse sÍ. Kort kerf-kappe om 'n amper-haaks stomp in 'n skoon haaks balk te omskep.
Ek sien die Gibson is in 1095 staal maar die klein plat Gerber byltjies kom in 'n stainless van soort.

Is daar spesifieke staal opsies wat ek moet oorweeg as ek die stainless roete wil gaan?

Kry vir jou 'n klein byl kop en maak jouhandle volgens jou smaak.  Die 1095 carbon steel is maar 'n algemene staal wat hulle op byle gebruik en daai is meer as goed genoeg vir daai size byl. 

Hier is so klein kamp byltjie wat ek gemaak het, net die kop skoongemaak en skerp gemaak.  Hy is lekker dun, klein en lig. 

Met die stainless is ek nog effe dom.

Hardy, seker maar n hawk wat op die standaard steel sal werk.  Joggie maak mos nou vir my n olienhout steel vlg die ekstra steel wat ek gekoop het.  Maar na al my paracord wrapping gaan ek dit beslis nie afhaal om op die nuwe steel te sit nie. Eerder kyk vir n kop wat op die standaard steel pas. Kan mens dit los koop?

En btw, Joggie het nou n sample as jy olienhout wil bestel👍

Post by: Vis Arend on February 17, 2020, 01:50:12 pm
So our friend, Joggie, asked me to make him an axe.  His request was a small camping / throwing axe. 

No problem, I do have a few old axes I acquired recently.  I picked one more and less the size he wants.

I will take you through the process, the way I do / did it.  There is most probably other methods, but I found this to work the best for me. 

1st Step is to get the shape he wants, more or less.  I mark the shape on the metal with a perma marker.
Thereafter it is cutting time, with the small hand grinder and thin cutting disk.  I cut the axe head into pieces and to the required shape, more or less.   :patch: :biggrin:  I also keep a bowl or bucket of water nearby, the material must not get to hot.  Cut a piece and dip the material. 

Once I'm done with the cutting, it is more grinding, this time with the grinding disk, those fat little ones.  I grind aggressively all the rough pieces almost smooth and almost to shape.  Now it's time for the flap disk, 40 grit.  I use the flap disk to shape further until I am almost satisfied.  This is just a further process to smooth all the in-perfections from the heavy grinding.     

Then I use the belt grinder with a 100 grit belt.  I shape the axe head to the dimensions and shape it must be.  The belt grinder gets all the angles right and you have much more control over how much material is taken of.   This machine is just magic.  I also add whatever other shape I want to the axe head with the belt grinder. 

I was happy with the shape and needed to get rid of the rust from the axe head.  If it is heavy rust / dirt, I normally use a 40 grit flap disk to remove it.  This axe was not to bad and I used the bench grinder with the heavy duty buffing disk / roller to clean the axe head.  It cleaned the head perfectly and I liked the end results, so there was no need for the flap disk. 

Now it was time to get the old look back.  Here I use gun blue, smear it over the metal and let dry for a minute or so and then rinse with water.  Now I use a fine grit sandpaper and sand most of the gun blue off, but only lightly so that the gun blue still stays behind in the grooves and so more. 

Then I use some gun oil and smear the axe head with it and let it rest for a while. 

The axe handle was left over piece from an old pick handle I used previously.  I think it is Red Meranti.  I shape the handle to fit the axe head, smooth it a bit and applied linseed oil to it. 

I cut a wedge to size and fit the axe head to the handle, glue the wedge and moer it into place. 

One axe made for Joggie, hope the man will like it.   
 

Phodies to follow showing the process. 


1  Shape marked
2  Remove old handle
3  Handle removed
4  Cut to shape
5  Cooling down
6  More shaping
7  Getting a smoother edge
8  Shape is almost there



Title: Re: Axes, Hatchets and Tomahawks

2-5  Polishing
6-8 Gun blue to old look

Can you elaborate on fixing the axe head to the shaft please. I see a wooden wedge and wood glue.

Ja, I also used to do that.  There is different ways, but I find the wooden wedge to hold good.

At your handle tip, where the axe head will fit, cut a center groove the width off the axe head into the handle.  I use a meat band saw, but you can use any saw for that matter.  Make your wedge is the same wood as your handle or a harder wood.  Glue it and hammer it into the groove once you fixed the axe head to the handle.  Hammer slowly and you must glue it.  You can hammer and once stuck leave a couple of minute and hammer again until it will not go any deeper.  The glue helps as a lubrication and once dry it is almost there forever.   Cut the excess wedge  and wipe the glue that spilled.    You good to go.   

Other menthod is to hammer a metal piece in there, like a piece of flat iron cut to size, but I am not fond of it.  It is almost the same a nails.   :eek7:   :lol8: 

I made this axe and once I fitted the wedge, not waiting for it to dry or settle, I tested it by throwing it into a piece of wood to see if it works.  It held up.    :eek7:
 :biggrin:

Hope it makes sense.   :thumleft:

Daar is die link, dis eintlik vir 'n loopstok, maar het hom hier gebruik.  Ek het gewone 550 paracord gebruik.  Trek hom net met elke knoop moer styf, hy klou dat hy kak.  Ek het hom probeer draai om die handle nadat ek klaar was, no go.   
As jy bang is hy klou nie gebruik daai swart tape wat jy kry vir elektriese draad, daai een wat nie gom op het nie, hy is amper soos lap maar klou op homself.  Draai hom eers onder op die rou handle dan die paracord bo dit, hy sal nooit gly nie.

Gister vir die eerste keer my hawk gebruik. Baie maklik sekelbos gekloof. Meestal one shot met min force.  Lem is baie skerp.  Ook so gewrig size takke van bome genoei. Hulle is nat en sukkel bietjie. So paar keer my grip verloor as ek bo my kop donner.  Die strap het dan goed gewerk.  Kon die brandewyn ook gewees het...

Nee, die man gesels lekker en se hy sal olienhout vir my kry as hy nie het nie.  Hy wil ook graag my byle sien.  Smaak my ons gaan meer as 'n naweek kuier.  Sal julle op hoogte hou as ek nog lewe na die naweek.   :patch:   :lol8:

Weet dis nie byle nie, maar wil dit hier wys. 

Kieries wat ek by Joggie gekry het wat hy natuurlik self gemaak het met olienhout.

1ste foto wys die twee saam.  Die een links is 'n loopstok, die een regs die knopkierie, m.a.w. die moerstok.   :biggrin:

2de foto die knopkierie se kop
3  Die patroon op die knopkierie

4  Die loopstok se kop
5  Die loopstok se patroon.

Die swart is houtskool gemeng met uitgekookte, ongesoute, dierevet en dan aan die patroon gevryf.  Die res van die kierie is ook met dierevet gesmeer.

Yip, we pay in the region of R800, vat inclusive,  for the same axe here, ad delivery and you pay almost R1 000.  The prize there seems to be R652, so about R150 saving exl delivery. 
And they are amazing little axes.   :thumleft: :thumleft:

Anyone got one of these?
I used one (not  mine) once , boy that one was strong
expected the wood to crack after some serious chopping - but nothing , no chip marks either

would like to know what wood they typically use (for the handle) if anyone knows?

HEWING Axe

I'm posting this just as a subject of interest.
Whether home made or factory produced at least 100 years ago, they all seem to measure 11 and a half inches across.
Specifically designed to work logs to create a straight edge or planks for your log home.
Largely used in Northern USA, Canada and Alaska.
The blade had a straight edge on one side and angled on the other.
The handle had to be angled away from the log to avoid injury to your hands and legs.
The handle design worked very well as it stopped you wrecking your knuckles.
The example I've shown in the photo is set up for a left handed person or left hand work and has been estimated to be about 120 years old.
Title: Re: Axes, Hatchets and Tomahawks
Post by: Tony the Boney on April 02, 2020, 08:27:32 am
You really had to be an artisan to work one of these.
BTW., the wood in the 1st picture is Black Cherry and the thinner log is Pin Cherry.

You get them up north west (Caprivi) Namibia and also Botswana.  I have the smaller one that they use to make their mokoro's (dug out canoe) and then also the bigger one for chopping trees and the like.  Blades are made from leaf springs yes.

Any advice on who can help make a nice wooden handle grip for a one piece forged steel camping hatchet
 Got from my late father and the old rubber grip has disintegrated. Looking at something simila to wooden knife handles.

I have had this tomahawk tool laying around for a number of years, rescued from some dump and wooden grip long gone. I think it was primarily a de-crating tool with an integral claw and hammer. Well it has been restored to its former glory, axe sharpened and new wild olive grip handle fitted. I love the patina and need to work it a bit to get some back where by necessity it was sanded.

Changed my Chogan Tomahawks axe handle, which was a hickory handle, to a wild olive (olienhout) handle.  The handle was supplied by our friend, Joggie.   :biggrin:

Did some wrapping and leather on the handle and the wife made me a beautiful sheath for both the Chogan and the Kangee Tomahawk.   Pretty happy with both.
