Nice haul, Kirk, nice haul.
That head may not be a problem. What I've seen of shingler's hatchets, the
axe side is skinny and then flairs out quickly for the handle hole and
hammer side, and that sudden flair seems like it would 'catch' on the wood
being worked on. I'm used to axe cheeks that widen gradually.
Whether to bother putting a curve on that blade is beyond me. As always,
more research is needed. Go for it.
