Whilst in Zakopane there was a festival for the long May weekend at the foot of Gubalowka. On the couple of days we were there not only were there a number of puppies in the street for sale (Agi fell in love with all of them I think ;-) but also a blacksmithing demonstration. One smith was particularly interesting as he wass forging axes and using a drift to put the eye holes in. They were very thin and light axes and fairly expensive - about 200zl (about £40) - compared to the price you'd pay for most handmade things in Poland. I didn't get one as I bought a traditional highland style ciupaga axe (pictures to follow) earlier in the weekend and I've also just recieved a small hatchet in the post (another future post) I'll leave you with a Polish axe smith and his wares.
