Update: Council Tool FSS Boy's axe in use

Hey folks, Just thought I'd do an update on the Council Tool FSS(Forestry Service Edidtion) Boy's axe.  I just couldn't come around to the lacquer handle and the painted head.  So now the handle is sanded and oiled and the head is clean.  The way I like them.  Well I've used this axe a bit since getting it and I'm loving it.  Here it is in use on a  dead standing oak about 6-7" wide.  This axe bites deep and holds it's edge well.  It's the best 3/4 axe I've used. 

Here's a few more shots of the axe after paint and lacquer removal

Thanks for looking.
