axe sheath

4

So here’s that hawk mask that I recently finished off , its a basic friction fit sheath .

Made from 4.5 mm wet formed veg tan leather which was then distressed on the workshop floor .

 Old copper was then shaped and hammered into place , then drilled and  riveted with copper saddlery rivets before being aged with brass black .

 The leather was then double dyed dark brown and then light for an aged effect before being rubbed back with wire wool for a scuffed effect.

Lightweight

Warnings: none

Words: 847

Summary/Imagine: Imagine Dwalin carrying you on his back, a human, and saying that you are lighter than his axes + Imagine refusing to hit Dwalin while sparring.

Gender: neutral


Sweat dripped down your back, soaking your tunic as you maneuvered around Dwalin. His shoulders were tense, muscled arms rippling in the morning light as his fists tightened around his axes. Though you were looking to improve on sword fighting, he insisted that he fought with his axes. You had rolled your eyes when he said that your enemy wouldn’t put down his weapon to pick up a sword when fighting you, so you needed to get ready to face anything. He was right, of course, but those axes were far too intimidating…

GB SFA Kydex mask .

 Its been awhile since I made up kydex masks for some smaller Gransfors Brucks belt hatchets  but wanted to make up a prototype version for my own small forest axe as well .

This Proto version has x3 points of retention , the first  the kydex mold itself , secondry retention comes in the form of a self tightening screw allowing the user to set the required retention and 3rd in the form of a Mil-spec shock cord loop with ITW Nexus hardware.

 I plan to make a few more versions of these including a full survivor model and will probavbly make a leather version in the same style for those anti -plastic kydex haters out there .

Survival Hatchet.

 Whilst I had the Technora 950 out to wrap up my AK knife I thought it may be cool to wrap up the haft of my Gransfors Bruks belt hatchet too .

The small axe lives in my Kifaru E&E pack and just wanted to see what add-ons I could add to the existing set up to make it better .

I wrapped the haft in over 200 inchs of the technora 950 cord from twinlineusa.com (many thanks Sync_below) giving a great grip but also a load of 950 lb breaking strain cord .

To the existing kydex mask I added a fire- steel toogle to the shock cord retention system , a Photon freedom Micro with 360 degree rotation and one of my Mini MK3 double sided Glint &Glow markers in 3M orange reflective and cyflect reverse .

 To the technora lanyard I added a mini Go-tube from snakeDr/ oscar delta which is perfect for stashing small SERE / E&E kit in this case a micro fire-steel/ needle  wrapped in several feet of micro cord ,  x2 swan Norton scalpels blades wrapped in waxed brown tinder paper , x2 Hammero tinder card circles, a baddest bee fire fuze sealed in heat shrink and a 10 hour red mini chem light .

 Apart from the obvious benefits of the axe with increased range, cutting/ chopping  power, use as a hammer  etc , there’s the added benefit of using the technora as a friction saw that will cut through wood , there are now also 2 ways to make fire , x5 forms of tinder and x5 lighting / signaling options .

Custom Axe mask .

So here’s that carbon fiber pattern Holstex a thermoplastic similar to kydex axe mask that I recently made for a customer .

 There are 3 levels to the sheaths retention, first the close molding of the Holstex , second is the Mil-spec shock cord and cord-lock and 3rd a simple kydex hardware screw & post which allows the user to set the amount of retention / ease of draw .
