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!
