    AP did my scandi axe and MM did my wildlife hatchet.

    I am thinking some of the guys specialize in certain axes, and these same few fellas make the standard shaped heads like the sfa, wildlife, mini, etc.
    I like Matthias' axes though only because the double MM looks pretty cool. :)

    I looked up A.S. in my booklet when I got my small forest. If I saw the correct guy, he looks like he could slap the crap out of me with his weak arm while half asleep.
