This Kent pattern head is of the well known and prestigious Elwell company.

I put a 30 degree hollow grind on it using the diamond setup on my @tormek_bushcraft I could tell it is well heat treated steel of great quality.

-

I cleaned up the poll, got rid of some rust without getting into the patina and oiled the head.

-

It is hung on a great Swedish haft from hickory, carved and roughed for better traction when carving, finished in thinned linseed oil.

-

Of course I made one of my classic masks for it in German harness leather and all brass hardware.

All edges are hand burnished and waxed.

The retention strap has a second setting to keep things tight when it gets worn in.

-

About 650g, 10cm of edge and 30cm usable handle. Great allround carver.

-

Ps: not the prettiest hanging job but she's straight and tight which is difficult to achieve with this short eyes
