I am preparing for the 1883 era black powder hunt coming this week..here is a viking type axe I am working on, hope to forge weld it tomorrow so I can take it on the hunt..a knife to process a carcass as well.it nearly is completed...I will be using Borax to forge weld the spring steel inserted into the ball peen hammer frame. The reason for inserting a piece of spring steel in a ball peen hammer frame is to have a sharp and hard edge on this axe...
