A lovely rustic 10 inch hand forged froe with Ash handles made using a pole lathe / shave horse. These froes are rustically made with genuine authentic character.
These froes have unhardened, high carbon steel blades ready for the large twisting forces which lay ahead. Froes do not require a sharp edge as it can result in the blade cutting and sticking into the wood rather than the intended purpose of splitting the wood.
Each froe has a slight curve in the spine of the blade which in the experience of the maker results in introducing a split far easier than a flat spine. The bevel is hand forged to shape and finished with an abrasive wheel.
These froes each have a rolled eye opposed to a welded eye making for a much sturdier tool.
The maker of this froe is a full time, experienced, green woodworker.
Size: 10 inch
