    What do the engraved notches stand for? Cords?

    Ooops, answered my own question.

    Nice photo.

    Well, I've got to hand it to you, that wooden handle looks a lot better after 15 cords than mine did after just 3. Although that tape gives me a clue that it isn't 100%. In fact, I can see a big split coming that looks like it underlines the word 'Butcher'. I used mine until almost skewering my right hand when a big half inch x 2 foot splinter came flying off!

    I bought a new 8 lb maul since I wanted a fiberglass handle and a larger mass than the 6 pounder I had just destroyed.

    Wood Butcher is a catchy name BTW. And I like the notches. I was hoping they represented cords and not bodies. ;)

    Man Butch, your kinda freakin me out.

    I'm with Mo, that handle would have been long gone if I wacked 15 cords with it.

    Sharp crew here to pick up on the mocossins in the pic!
