In the fall of the year the trees are dropped, and in a rough way each handle is shaped by a tool they call a froe.
Perhaps the most striking features of the froe Islands are their sea-cliffs.
The trees are chopped in the fall, and then by means of a "froe" and axe each handle is roughly blocked out.
A couple of years later they paid a visit together, an enjoyable and profitable one, to the froe Islands.
These are four feet in length, split with a froe six or eight inches wide, and half an inch thick.
The trees are chopped in the fall, and then by means of a ‘froe’ and an axe, each handle is shaped out in a rough state.
The froe is held by the handle with the left hand and hammered on the top with a mallet held in the right hand.
