True Temper Kelly Perfect.

Post by BigJesse » Sun Apr 09, 2017 7:41 pm

Picked this up at a flea market today for 6 bucks. I'll be restoring it and hafting it soon. Some decent rust to it but nothing that I can't fix.

Jesse, did you finish this project? I have the same exact head that I found at a flea market waiting to be hafted. Would love to see how yours turned out.
