  1. Hey! That looks like a book worth buying– Thanks for the head’s-up.

  2. Glad you are updating once again, I look forward to more posts. I am almost half Moravian by ancestry (7 of 16 great-great-grandparents, all from my mother’s side), and am interested in what I guess could be called wood craft from the old country, and the related tools, including the oprishki featured on your blog. Another blog has a recent post about the Bohemian traditions around the Six Days of Easter, and included a early-20th century postcard of two young Czech boys jumping with their walking axes to celebrate Easter. It’s the third picture down. http://www.tresbohemes.com/2016/03/six-days-easter-based-bohemian-tradition/ I’m trying to gauge how widespread using the walking axe was across the Central European mountains.

  3. Glad to see you are back. Why no facebook page?
