I started making axes like this in 2012 and am having a hard time keeping up with demand. The only change I made was in the leather on the blade. After I sew it in place I go back and apply a thick layer of Bondo body filler epoxy over it and it hardens like micarta.This would be great for a small survival ax, these table saw blades also work well for making knives and broadheads.

The only change I would make is to collapse the handle where the blade is first attached and THEN insert the nails so you can flatten the nail ends to turn them into “rivets” to make the connection stronger, otherwise they may eventually come loose. Even with epoxy.

I would also put the seams of the upper leather trim on the side of the handle rather than line up with the cutting edges so if you miss you don’t bump into the seams and break them over time. All in all a great project!

Now where did that old saw blade go.I’m just curious about the blades of the saw and why you didn’t heat treat the steel while I was stabbing.

The teeth of all circular saw blades are hardened steel. The body of the circular saw blades is non-hardening mild steel.Nice axe, but doesn’t subscribe due to weak jerky camera work. Sorry. Still a very nice axe
