This is my first one so dont be too critical i can all ready see a few things i would do better next time. Steel from an old scrap i beam and wood from a broken shovel handlehttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/29/a8uqypun.jpg

OK...needs a sharper edge. The way it is now its just a piece of metal on a wood handle. I'd place a couple of bolts/rivets thru the handle and into your blade to hold it in place when striking. Other than that I like its originality.
I made a couple throwing axes similar to this...
Similar to a Viking hand axe, I'll get pics of mine asap
My first attempts...
Crude, but I bet they'd get the job done ;)

I didnt use any rivets or bolts because i thought it would look cheap. I was kinda going for a very basic old school thing. However i did drill out a hole and run the paracord through it. Its pretty stable when rapped with the paracord. I should have taken a pic after it was fine tuned. The blade is really sharp now

Awesome points for being basic and originality

Very nice. Track of the Wolf seems to have tomahawk kits the heads handles on sale most of the time. Have thought of giving one a try.
Got this in a email today.

i bought kit from knifekit.com and stained the handle, put an edge on the blade, and wrapped it with paracord. pretty handy little tool for $35.00
