That's magnificent! - Curly Maple is hard to beat, Steve.
Throwing axes are different than combat Tomahawks. The weight and balance is different, my son in law throws axes in competition. His axes seem top heavy to me.. I’m no expert he is.. fun activity though, like big darts.OP's tool is beautiful.
While on the subject, ever try throwing them? A few times I've gone to arcades where you can throw them. How hard can this be? Right! Darned hard to get them to consistently stick, in my experience.
Very Nice...I'm partial to small Hudson Bay axes....
