    This is just a beautiful axe.
    I always find myself hanging a little longer on your picture here when I come check out this thread.
    I don't have a DB of any kind yet but on the look out with my ear to the ground.

    We vacationed in Germany back in 2008, Munchen - Oktoberfest, to the Bavarian Alps to Dachau, pre-children...
    I fell hard for Spaten and have been searching for Lowenbrau here in CT recently with no luck!

    Today's revisit to these two handles for reshaping work is capped and continued with a Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon tonight.
    I like to drink my wine from this canning jar when out in the garage...it drives my wife nuts so I know I must be doing something right.

    I wish I had a Dunkel straight from Munchen now

    Hang it or flip it, 2.5lb cedar pattern. I've had it several months and can't make up my mind, surely more beer will help me make the decision.

    Equally, or more so valuable, though.:)

    The Flint Edge doesn't have near the value of a Black Raven today. The old catalogs had them at the same cost. They're probably the same steel.

    I kept this one over a really sweet Perfect (which I flipped). It's almost unused and on its original handle. I've always loved western pattern double bits. The long toes do it for me.:D

    The edge angle is 25 degrees at the very edge rolling to 22.5 degrees 1/4" from the edge. That's just how I file my choppers. This one is in my to-do pile for the time being.

    This is the hardest thing that I drink. I've never had a beer.

    I use it to hold wood longbows when I'm building them. It clamps vertically instead of horizontal like a normal bench vise. It also works great for axe/hatchet handle work. A friend made that for me. He makes a larger version and sells them. I requested the smaller size and find it much more useful for what I do.
