Wimpole Lathers 29-03-15 Elm bark stripping trip.
Someone had just bought this axe from Robin Wood for £35!
It looked cast steel with an insert for the cutting edge. Not sure that I am correct however!
Having said that The Ford Motor Company make press cutting tools by MIG welding HSS onto mild steel.
And off to the woods! I did not join them. Am waiting for some feedback from Simon.
He tried to strip bark last week at Sutton Ho but it was lacking sap!
