Default John Neeman Axe

Thought some might enjoy this video of the making of one of the premier axes in the world - a John Neeman axe.

It a tiny company in Latvia. Very hard to get one . They only take orders they can fill .

I had considerable skill as a tool maker at making things from metal in machine shops.....

But this is talent... Always have enjoyed seeing things like this..

Thanks for sharing..

Holy crap! That's not a tool...it's a work of art. Over $400 for most axes. Not for the regular Joe but the workmanship and final product is a thing to behold. Hats off to the master craftsmen that still produce that thing of precision and beauty.
