  • Cashmere Estwing Hatchet Axe Restoration - Wait? Cashmere?!

    I got this Estwing hatchet axe off Ebay with the intent of putting a new handle on it. I also had found a nice cashmere wool scarf and a Kys-ite tray that I thought together would make for an awesome and unique handle. I feel like it all turned out awesome and it is super grippy and smooth at the same time. I hope you like it.

    Thank you all for watching. I apologize for the imbalance in the audio in places, especially when I have power tools going. I have since learned that I should double check the audio balance before uploading. Again, thanks for watching and don't miss my other videos.

    You introduced me to making micarta. Never thought about it before. Having seen you lay it up, I wonder how it would look in the finished product if you alternated with contrasting colors every two or so layers? Dang it! I don’t need another project/interest plaguing me! Thanks for the prod into something else!

    For $30 you could buy a new Eastwing hatchet that would weigh the original...

    Dude, either talk or use power tools or talk while you have the volume of the tools turned down. Good videography. Terrible audio balance.

    While I like your restoration and new handle I think this style of handle would be better suited for a knife handle. The original leather on the handle was meant to absorb shock while chopping. While I haven't held or used your handle I would imagine it transfers more shock to the user.

    This is craftsmanship at it's best. To make a handle out of scarf is amazing.
