Toporo valašky

The handle is made of three planks cut into the basic shape. These planks are sticked conically together with a joiner glue and grippers. Then the rough shape was made by a planer. 

Afterwards it was ground, first by a dowlass to round edges, then by softer one to clean its surface. After pointing and grinding the cracks the Valaška was varnished.

The axe is made of steel plate of thichness 2,5 mm. First you need to make a paper model, which was tested out with the handle to see the final shape and proportions. Then you cut its cover and weld up (4,5 m in the crack). In the end the axe was filled by PUR foam so that it couldn´t sound in striking.
