Feeling nostalgic.... Found it in an old

This may be my oldest handmade sculpting tool.

I made it when I was around 18 years old.

The blade was forged on my homemade brake drum forge out of an old saw blade.

The Osage Orange handle came from a fallen tree in Texas. The rivets are brass rod. The branded GDO logo was hand " carved" from a piece of aluminum scrap.

Why? I had little $ and specialized tools weren't available. And why not order off internet... It wouldn't exist for decades :-)
