council tool -"velvicut" hudson bay axe making video

Narrated by Council Tool president John Council, this video reveals a few key details (ribs inside the axe head to grip the handle); "just like it ought to be".

Have mentioned them before; Council Tool provide axe heads to Best Made and I believe also for newish marque in Montana called Meriweather Field Gear, who specialise in maple/walnut laminates for the helves. They use a similar process to produce eye-watering canoe paddles, w/ carbon faces for kayak paddles; as WhiskeyJack Paddles). Pretty stunning.

I'd be afraid to put one of those nice paddles in the water around here in fear of it coming back caked in gulf mud. Very nice stuff though.
