I wanted to mix things up from the usual building projects, so decided on this axe head which had been rusting in a small pile of tools that we inherited when we moved into the farmhouse.
Another thing I wanted to change was all the timelapses as I realised I was becoming too dependent on them.. really happy with the result - seems to have a much nicer pace and it's more detailed. Let me know what you think!

I love to see old tools restored. Imagine how many stories they tell. My grandad made a lot of his own tools.

This was my first video from you I watched and have not regretted subbing and anxiously waiting for your build projects. Honestly my favorite things are when you use the jointer cause it's just so satisfying.

The axe head certainly has a beautiful design. A job well-done, although I would have thought buffing or oxidizing the area you painted black would have been preferable. In day-to-day use I would think the primer and base metal would show through quickly.

I'd suggest in the future that you use rust converter instead of paint, you'll get a nice dark color and it'll make it look ancient. I'd also suggest using something like swel-lock instead of epoxy, that way if you the handle breaks you won't have to chip out the old epoxy. All in all I'd say you did a great job and didn't overcomplicate it. Also, are you choking up on the ax during the upswing? If not then you're wasting a lot of energy on the upswing. Keep up your can do attitude, and remember to work smart not hard and you'll get through life just fine.

A few things I would have done differently, I would have put linseed oil on the axe and not painted it as the paint will wear off and I wouldn’t have put epoxy around the eye mainly because if the handle breaks but the epoxy if still strong that’s gonna be a bastard to clear out but at the end of the day you took some rusty old axe head and turned it into a useful tool good job mate

As we can see in this video, an axe doesn't have to be perfectly polished to work very well. This is a nice work possible to do at home !

I saw someone restore an axe it had similar rust corrosion he welded the pot marks then grinded it he also heated it up before putting the handle on but he was a blacksmith so he had the gear to do it , you done an excellent job. I've been watching all your videos just amazing work you and your dad do .

That is most likely a German or Austrian axe judging by the shape of the eye. You wont find that handle in any U.S. hardware store. You did a good job. I have an Ox head axe and hope I never break the handle.

What´s the problem ? If you break it my mechanics V will make you a new one:-) But seriously where is the problem with carving an axe handle yourself? By the way -you have the best axe handle materials available on this planet in the US : Black locust, hickory, orange osage. The more expensive Ochsenkof handles are made of hickory, the regular one from european ash (the excelsior variety).

Fun fact: The type of the axe is called Dane Axe and it was introduced to the region by nordsmen. Some call them Vikings but that is a wrong concept. Quite astonishing the type of axe head is still widely used daily.

Well, that was different, I assume you just decided to go against the usual way and do it in your own style....well done, but if you actually use this axe please be aware that epoxy is quite brittle and may crack when subject to shock and since you didn't put any steel wedges in, it may fly off and hit you on the bonce.

Для расклинивания топорища лучше использовать 5 клиньев( центральный клин и 4 боковых). Для подгонки топорища удобнее использовать рашпиль по дереву,нежели рубанок. В ролике топорище слишком свободно входит в проушину топора, при такой посадке топор начнёт слетать с топорища.

Why do something to save work? I thought that was the whole point, ie. to work at it. If you are wanting to save work, just go buy a new ax.

Well ! It's your axe, but you turned a nice antique axe head into something that just came out of the Gamme Vert store, at least you have saved it for future use, I found exactly the same in the bonfire site here in the Lot, a quick soak in Phosphoric acid and it was rust free but still looked good, You cant win them all!

I always see these and they do a chemical rust removal and then use a wire wheel or sandblast. What purpose does the chemical rust removal do on a simple object like the axe head? I understand on a more complex object because the chemical rust removal gets in the nooks and crannies facilitating taking it apart, but can't figure out why the do it on these items. I usually just hit it with a power washer to knock the loose stuff off then put it on the wire wheel. Comments please!?

The only way to learn is to try. Pick one you don't love and get to work on it. You can do it with hand tools just takes longer. The old saying "The master has failed more times than the student has tried" applies.

Not only does it make it harder to re-haft in the event of the handle breaking, few modern adhesives available wholesale are able to withstand the shock of heavy use (like with an axe) for very long, unless they are purpose-designed.

I happen to be the 'aluminum handle freak', and am somewhat hurt by this comment. However, I have to admit that it really does look a bit shite now, especially as I had to use it on a rather chunky carcass recently which left it badly stained.. Coincidentally my fat pig of a wife was 'up on blocks' the week I made the video (ie she 'had the painters in', or 'was in a 'blobstrop'), and was nagging at me non-stop to the point where I lost it and dealt with her, then threw her in the cellar. Judging by the unpleasant atmosphere seeping up into the kitchen from down there, and the serious fly infestation as well, the warm weather is having an unfortunate effect on her.

I don't mind the aluminum handle video. I recall the guy stated it was not intended to be used for actual work. It is for decoration and a novelty item. The question is where the hell do you put it?

well a huntsman couldnt have done it better :D so "nice" job... from a knifemakers standpoint i would have liked a tricker warning... you didnt remove the pitting in the wedge witch will bind up on wood... you painted the axe in stead of giving it a heave acid bath to develop iron in the +4 stage (black) that stops rust perfectly... and then given it a couple of coats of good oil... and dont epoxy the handle on... its just lazy... do it right for god sakes...

Who was the original manufacture of the axe head??
Andy McKenzie
Andy McKenzie 4 yıl önce
First: The axe looks beautiful, and the handle fit looks just about perfect! Thanks for the video! That said: Your use of epoxy made me cringe. The only reason you were able to restore the axe is that the handle had been removed, or that you could have removed it if there was one. The epoxy goes a long way towards convincing someone down the line that repair or restoration isn't worth the effort. Gluing -- even epoxying! -- the wedge in place is fine, but using it to connect the wood to the iron is likely to be a problem in the long term.

Hmm... very unlikely the temper would be affected with an angle grinder, unless it was getting excessively hot. Hence why axe makers grind the finished bevel and edge after hardening and tempering.

In my experience it depends on what kind. I find the 5min ones break like glass but the longer it takes to dry the more resistant it is to breaking
immasurvivor 4 yıl önce
I guess softer ones work better? Since the impact wont shatter it?
Demon Axc
Demon Axc 4 yıl önce
@immasurvivor they way I look at it is because it takes longer it leaves it more flexible then the quick drying epoxies. And it will also fill any gap or crevice as it has more time making a better bond
