Tools could be awesome! I had an old axe which needs some repairs. It was rusty and the handle was broken, so I decided to make new one but in, better, original, more decorative version. I've created the carved Vikings style handle and then, after removing rust from the blade, I've polished it "to a mirror".
Now the axe looks really nice, works very well (chopping is easy, because the blade is smooth and sharp) and it feels very good to work with the tool which is quite original:)
