My Father’s finished axe on the right.
I bought the head from a friend of mine Ulf Eriksson, a Swedish Australian blacksmith who has an Etsy store here:

For most of my sharp stuff I go to him, with the exception of my sharp sword and spear as he doesn’t do those…yet…

He made my seax and my axe seen on the left.

Maybe one day I’ll be able to convince him to make a langseax like the one I use in combat.

Really appreciate everyones patience and understanding that artisan made items take time to create, leather in a lot of ways is very unforgiving a single miss strike of the hammer or hell even a too long finger nail gently touching the wet surface can ruin the thing before its dried and cured. I work as fast as i humanely can with 6 years of professional leather work under my belt. So i think the next time i get a complaint for taking to long i will challenge the person to make the item faster then me and just as nice haha hell i would probably offer them a job if they were able to do it!
