Travis will demonstrate the forging and shaping of an ax head using mild steel with a tool steel insert for the cutting edge which in turn will be forge welded in place. Travis will also demonstrate how the eye is drifted so that a sturdy handle can be applied. This should be an interesting demo and one that several members have requested.
