First, yes this was up at JS, It’s a Hibben Axe. Originally a throwing axe and hence illegal to posses in Victoria without an exemption (Now if they hadn’t termed it a throwing axe but as a plain axe it’s legal status changes though nothing else does. Politician is not synonymous¬† with idiot but this law certainly is damning evidence)

I’ve gone at it with a die grinder, opening up the original small hole to something you can put your finger in for fine control as well as deepening the hook (and allowing a better forward grip) and smoothing down some handle protrusions. I’d certainly not have done it with a file as it’s 440C stainless steel, it’s hard and takes a great edge.

A great little axe that’s due for some more attention when I can get a chance.

    Mr. Barnes stole my comment. But, it is still sweet.
