New axe, re handled and ground. It was really good to use looking forward to using it more. its a four pound ellwell so its got more umph than my other 3 pounder but isnt too wieghty like my 5 and half pound gilpin (also re ground and nice to use now- same shaft it came with which is bit too long but gives me a good big swing on it but still a bit heavy for a full day).

this tree went a bit badly, despite the lay of the tree being subtley the opposite way to which the main trunk leant, it fell back onto the back cut (rather than gob). The gob was as big as usual (just over half) but obviously not big enough! this is me looking a bit bemused, about to jump into the safe area to my left!
