Plumb carpenter's hatchet from the vinegar bath

Pulled this plumb carpenter's hatchet from the vinegar bath to find excellent temper and zero structural weaknesses.

the vinegar is weakening and every new tool submersion makes a great brutal landscape.

vinegar bath the plumb carpenter's hatchet came out of .

after the bath i give a quick "rough" polish. this rough polish will inhibit rust until i am able to work on it again and provides another perspective of the tools characteristics. this perspective more often then naught gets me excited to continue on.

just starting to show the beauty of its age.
 the next step will be to re-establish a proper bit angle, do any bit to cheek transition profiling, sharpen, fine polish then final hone.
