As I continue down this road of green woodworking, I'm at the point where I need
to get a decent froe. Now, perhaps I'm really bad at using the google machine
but I can't seem to find a decent froe at a decent price. Searching on the ol'
electronics-bay.com and etsy also doesn't seem to turn up much. I don't want
some rusted, mushroomed "antique" nor do I need (read: can afford) a handmade,
bespoke, artisan-made froe. I'd like something that will simply and reliably
split blanks out of green wood for several years to come. As much as I'd love to
drop $195 on a froe made by our highly-respected Swedish brethren, alas I cannot
justify the expense. Our valley-dwelling Canadian brethren seem to have a nice
one they are selling for $56 but I was wondering if there wasn't a nice, well-
made froe that someone is making and/or selling for less. Any and all
suggestions are appreciated.
I'm a simple man. I like pretty dark-haired women and breakfast food.
