Just let you know the axe and the wedge arrived safely thanks - an excellent service.
Modern design of a traditional tool featuring many improvements.
NOW AVAILABLE IN THREE VERSIONS:
SELECT FROM THE 'VERSION' DROP-DOWN BOX BELOW
The new BLACK versions have bodies made from a solid block of engineering polymer called Delrin. These are used extensively by Windsor chair maker James Mursell and his students.
Typically used after adzing chair and stool bottoms to complete the shaping and to reduce visible tool marks. At WOODSMITH we use them to shape shavehorse bodies making them far more comfortable.
Finished to a very high standard, one feature we particularly like is being able to drop the blade into the body when not in use, therefore protecting the edge.
Wooden body version is made from English hard maple, 190mm (7 1/2") x 64mm (2 1/2") x 25mm (1").
All versions have a blade with a 75mm (3") long edge made from A2 tool steel. Comes with an allen key to adjust blade height via grub screws
Sharpen the inside of the bevel with slip stones or emery paper bonded to a round dowel. Remove the burr on the flat side on an ordinary Fine flat stone then finish on leather, as always.
