Simple, straight forward and all natural. My conditioning wax is simply beeswax and Douglas fir infused olive oil. 1 oz tins are perfect for your pack or in your pocket. Use it on your axe or tool every now and again when it starts to feel a little dry. Get a good knot of it on your hand, cream it up to a paste consistency and apply to wood, metal or leather. Let set for 15 min then wipe away the excess. Great for keeping your handles, leather and steel in good condition and protected against the elements.
I am the sole proprietor for the Belfield Axe & Tool business. I run my restorations out of the shop attached to my home here in Medford Oregon. The majority of my pieces are sourced from local yard sales and other local picks. I do occasionally purchase through eBay and have also picked up a few from a local scrap yard.
The handles I use for axes and hatchets have been primarily store bought handles that I’ve customized and fit to each tool. I’m in negotiations with a local mill to start sourcing hardwood blanks so I can start to make handles myself.
I also make a conditioning wax that is included with the purchase of any of my axes or tools or it can be bought in individual 1 oz tins.
I am the father of two beautiful children and the husband of one gorgeous wife. I work full time and do this when I’m home and everyone else is asleep. It’s a passion that’s really grown on me and I am so happy to bring things from forgotten in a barn to chopping through your wood pile.
