Aint that the truth. I think I spend more time filing than anything else making pipe axes.

I imagine the original smiths who made these were talented enough to have them pretty well finished from the forge and did minimal file work. Thanks for the nice comments, folks! See you all at the CLA!

Ooooh.  That is functional art that makes me say, "I want that".   Lots of hours in that one for sure.
