Axe Quest II - The Head

The axe head I ordered from the states arrived last week and I should hopefully be able to get some tools to sort it out within the next few days.
My current thinking is that I'll need
- A flat file for the edge
- A round file to tidy up the eye
- Wet and dry paper to polish the head
- A handle, possibly a sledge hammer one to get the oval shape.
- A rasp to shape the handle
- Wooden and metal wedges to fit the handle
I'd ideally like to get some wire wool and linseed oil to finish the handle but it might not be that easy to find them.
