Welding a Bit into the Type M Axe

Flat Feature Welding

I just welded a large, finely-layered, shear-steel bit into the Type M axe I have been working on. These pictures show the bit after it was fixed into a cleft in the wrought-iron axe body, then again after the welding was done. The edge is a little over 8″ long.
