Ahh the joys of wood working :D

Its an unusual pattern, it looks like it would deliver most of the shock of impact right to the top of the haft?  It must be hard on wedges???

It’s not wedged yet Mate, got to thin it down some (it might still turn into a pile of splinters :))

Thanks Guys  :salute:

I tried to use a hole saw to begin with for the bottom curve, hole saws are great but it wouldn't touch the steel so I drilled a row of holes then used a 4" disc cutter, then again with the disc cutter for the top curve  :tu:

They would probably be too expensive,
All those broken and burnt drill bits (and there were a lot  ::) )*, discs and belts don’t grow on trees

*It was quite interesting drilling from the eye to the bit feeling the steel getting harder  :)

And a drop of glue



Added a leather thong
