Making a Hatchet with ALEC STEELE – Forging with a Sledge Hammer!

OUTDOORS
I head back to Alec Steele’s workshop to forge my own custom Hatchet. Alec taught me how to forge with a sledge hammer as well as how to put a handle on an axe.

Learning to forge with Alec has been a fantastic experience! We used 1055 steel for the axe head, and ash for the handle. Forging with strikers is something I have never done before, and getting to use the Sledge Hammer to hit red hot steel is just awesome! Alec showed me the whole process on heat treating the axe head, grinding the bevel with various grits on the belt grinder. For the handle he used the band saw to carve out a rough shape. Then Alec went old school and used a draw knife to shape the edges. He finished it up on the belt grinder. To finish it off we oiled it with linseed oil. Stay tuned on my channel as I head out into the woods soon to put the hatchet to the test and practice some Bushcraft & Survival skills using the tool!
