Wonderful presentation.  I'll bet that a personally hand made tool makes the work that much more pleasant.

A handle is made of ash wood, but the rest? Pins? I'm not a native speaker so haven't got it. Thank you in advance for an explanation.

Instead of using a iron rivet to stop the pole from splitting (making a weak spot) why not just whip the point where you want to stop the split with a string of natural fibers and fix the whipping with some glue or lacquer.
