Carpenter's Axe #370

This is an 18th century style carpenters axe with an as-forged surface on the axe head.  It is hand forged of mild steel with a high carbon bit forge welded in, like the original axes of the period.

The handle is fashioned from hickory with a linseed oil beeswax finish that has been heated to cause the finish to penetrate deeply
