The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.

    how about putting this head on a 24″ handle? I think that’s hitting a sweet spot you’re missing for a camp axe…similar to Hults Bruk Akka, 1.5 lb head on a 24″ handle.

    Update…I put this head on the 19″ slim hatchet handle from Whiskey River and I think I now have the ultimate canoe camping axe. Light and packable but heavy and wide enough for light splitting duty in the BWCA (cedar, spruce, pine, birch, fir). Feels well-balanced on its new handle.
