I was concerned about the sun I’d been getting but the day dawn overcast and cool. Perfect. I could continue with the chore (fun one!) I’d been tackling.I was still swinging the True Temper axe I mentioned in a previous post. So far it held up.As I’ve mentioned, I used an angle grinder to rework the blade geometry. Here’s a closeup of the thinned edge.This is soft jack pine but check out the bite. This is how far I’ve gotten in one stroke of about 75% effort. I’m holding the limb for perspective.Like I’ve said, until I try splitting or chopping dry oak, the jury is out on how solid this handle is. I hope it lasts because I’m pleased so far.
