Default 2 hatchets I cleaned up.

Had 2 hatches sitting here, that needed to be done up a bit. The one on the right is the argos axe, stripped the paint off the head and sanded down the shaft then danish oiled it. The left one is a fiskars axe, same story,cleaned off the black paint on the head and sanded shaft then danish oiled it.

I like them, they look so much better now than they were off the shelf. Just need to sharpen them and then make leather covers for them.

Best axe i ever used. Loved the head weight and shape. It got preference over the granny B's i had.

Nice work Mike.
