I like working with steel and try to keep honing my skills and make a few knives every now and then

recently I made a couple bushcraft axes out of a plow disk. It seems like I spent as much time on the

handles as I did on the axe itself. Anyway this is a four part series this is part 1.

Bushcraft axe making

This is a four part series on bushcraft axe making on how to make a full tang high carbon steel survival axe. This axe making tutorial will take you through the steps of making two axes from start to finish.
A plow disk will be used to make the axes because this metal is high carbon steel and will take the abuse and stand up to the test in the field.
The plow disk I will be using for this project is 3/16" thick and is a sod disk you can find thicker disk and they are called rock disc and are used where there are a lot of rocks in the field being plowed. The thickness of the rock disk is 1/4" and is equal to O1 steel or 1095 as far as carbon content and is just perfect for making bushcraft axes with full tangs.

If you like the axe making video please check the like button. If you watch all four parts of the series I think you will like what you see.

This is a light weight axe that is perfect for bushcrafting it's not the only axe you will need but a good lightweight ax for hiking a long way and not being weighted down by heavy gear.

Thanks for taking your time to watch this axe making tutorial.
