I found a head and had a broken handle lying around idle. The head got Vikinged with an angle grinder. Also the back was cut off and a piece welded into place to suit a smaller handle. Careful not to heat the edge. Some shaping of handle with drawknife & rasp. Hickory, I think. Beech wedge. Tattooed with soldering iron. I love the heft of it in my feels perfect.

Great save and a great job on the tattoo “too”.

I like the idea of modifications for the way you wanted it to be.

Nice job sir. That will go on for a few more decades now.
