If I knew that lefty I would sell him my recently re-steeled, by the expert tool smid out of France, Bernard Lucas. Some nice Uddeholm steel forge welded on the traditional hewing axe of southern Sweden with its original birch handle beautifully mounted which I have thinned down the way I like it so much. There is little to no finish work on the back saving so much time and effort at the lapping plate, simply hone and go.
