    AXE BELL DISPLAY

    Thanks, my axe collection hits a peak every year during maple syrup season because during boils I like to restore and rehaft axes I've accumulated during the year. The number diminishes over the summer and fall when I give them away to friends and family. The ones you see on the new half bell...

    GEC's jigging

    I didn’t used to like jigged bone of any type because the patterns didn’t seem right to me - the modern machine made jigging always seemed fake and contrived in my eyes. But then I discovered old (80+ years old) vintage jigged bone. I have learned to love the random jigging of these older...

    Comment from the buyer of No. 2: "I received the knife yesterday and you were right, it is a very special knife❤️." These Sowell linerlocks are thin, balanced, spectacular and an incredible value. I've reduced the price on No. 1, won't go lower. Thanks, DAVID
