I first saw custom axes from a local shop Georgecraft Woodworking posted by owners on the local Woodcutting Boys Facebook page. Each one I saw was more beautiful than the last. I searched for and contacted Gerorgecraft via Facebook Messenger enquiring about purchasing an axe.
At the time he had none in stock so I placed a custom order, a process no more expensive than purchasing one in stock. I picked out my axe head shape and Mr. George sent the sketch to his blacksmith who forged the head using a beautiful and one of a kind Damascus pattern.
Walter George then custom fabricated the hardwood handle and set it into the axe head. The finish was Ebony at my request and made for a stunning finished product.
Georgecraft also performs final sharpening and fabricated custom sheath to protect the sharp edge. All in all it was a fantastic buying experience and an absolutely beautiful one of a kind finished product that will be very well looked after!
