Grimbo, what can I say. Thanks for the mention.
The first one I made about 20 years ago was exactly the same as this one you have made, but it was a full size felling axe and although it worked, I found it a little heavy.
The next one I made I used a hatchet, and I heated the head and hammered it down over the spike on a pick axe. This rounded out the eye and I was able to just drop a tomahawk handle in with no wedge required. It resembles an early German pattern hatchet, and I still have it and use it.
I applaude your effort cutting this head to shape, because I know how much effort it takes.
Well done.
Le Loup.
