This particularly distinctive billhook is a real testament to the versatility of the tool! The exaggerated long point of the "hatchet" face allows it to handle knife-like piercing and precision cutting tasks while the hooked side has a deep bill for slashing power. The blade is distal tapered for strength in the tang and lively balance, while the upper ferrule has a tongue that allows it to be suspended from the belt when both hands need to be temporarily freed of the tool. This example has been fitted with a custom sculpted ash grip with a strong "Coke bottle" shape. The end of the tang is peened over a hand-forged washer with simple decorative file work in a radial pattern.
A mighty tool able to wear many hats!
