Bushcraft Hatchet

I forgot to take before pics, but i did take after pics.  i picked up the hatchet head at an antique shop somewhere a few years ago.  it sat on my bench until this week.  i reshaped the head and slimmed down an old axe handle for the haft.  the wedge is bodark.

it weighs 11 ounces without the mask.  shown with a gec redneck farm tool for reference.

God Bless Yall!
