This mallet belonged to my great grandfather, so it pained me dearly to hear the distinct crack of splitting wood while it was in motion.
during the hanging process of this champion pack hatchet i am constantly removing the head as i get a perfect fit. this time when i was about 3/4 of the done with the fitting, i heard that crack as i was removing the head. a deep crack running through both halves of the mallet.
THIS IS NOT THE END THOUGH!
tools are made to use
tools are made to be repaired.
maybe this weekend i will have some time to think of some clever repair + modification and then get this tool back to work.
