Crescent bit spike axe

This is something of an experiment with the spike tomahawk style.  It’s a bit more massive than the others I’ve made with a curved bit that looks like it was meant for business. The tomahawk is hand forged from mild steed with a high carbon bit forge welded in.  The handle is of hickory with a beeswax linseed oil finish.  The bit of the axe measures 3-3/4in, the axe head measures 9in from the tip of the spike to the bit and it is 22-1/2in overall length.     (#291)
