Camping axes by timjo Camping axes by timjo
I had a forging course in February, and I made there couple of these little cuties. Small axes for cutting smaller pieces of wood for starting up a fire etc. Small and lightweight enough to carry into forest with you.

The handle is birch, the blade mild steel with carbon steel edge.
Made using only "traditional" blacksmithing techniques, meaning the eye is punched and formed to shape and the carbon steel is forge welded to place. The bottom one has a small welding defect, not visible in the photo.
Length of the metal part about 11 cm, handle about 28 cm.

A very nice axe. The form almost remembers me of the Franconian throwing axe. The Franziska.

Thanks :)
Yeah, there's some similarity in the shape, altough it's completely unintentional.

Cool. Terien profiilit ovat semmoisia, että nuo toimisivat varmasti aika hyvin myös heittokirveinä. Ja etenkin tuo alempi, koska kärkikin kaartuu juuri otolliseen suuntaan. :)

Joo, jotkut kyseliki noista koululla ku tein, että onko ne heittokirveksiä... tosin terän pitäs vissiin kaartua enemmän ylöspäin ja kahvakaan ei oo ihan oikean mallinen siihen.
