Whoops! I over-reached with the sledgehammer when trying to drive a splitting grenade into a log today and I’ve got a crack in the handle. It was only last year I had a similar problem, shortly after I inherited it, although in that case the head came off entirely.
This time I might see if I can glue it up (the split is along part of the grain rather than straight across) and also reinforce it with some bindings round the top. I also need to remind myself not to get carried away in using it – three well aimed taps are probably better than a Thor-like thwack, which has this consequence if I miss!
