In a relatively quick and simple process, participants will forge a small axe from a hammer, working to their own design. Since the eye of the hammer head for inserting the axe handle already exists, they can move straight on to shaping the body of the axe, i.e. the cheek, blade, beard, shoulder and neck. The head of the axe weighs 1 kg. Participants may shape the head as they wish.
