The second double bit


I finished the second double bit making.
Its head has to be made to local blacksmith.
I add some grinding for shape what I wanted.




Its handle is made of the trunk of juniper tree.
I select a knotty trunk on purpose.




Its blade is sharp as knife,
and good hardening.




Someone ask me
what are double bit's practicalities.
No.
My double bit is a symbol
that I point to the heart of forest.





Leather sheath and tassel




closer look...
sloppy hand stitchs...

  2. Practicalities : One razor sharp edge for cutting. One obtuse edge for knots and splitting.
    I still hanker after one, might have to make one too as a homage to Nessmuk. Meanwhile i will make do with my Gransfors Brucks Mini. :0)
