This is a well made 2 1/2 lb Plumb single bit head, fully restored and ready for another 50 years of use.
The head needed just a little touch up to the edge and is now exceptionally sharp with a zero ground convex bevel. The poll needed some work. It was re-ground and beveled nice and square. The haft is a perfect grained 28" single bit US hickory haft from house handle that's been slimmed down a bit for comfort. It's been selectively flame hardened and antiqued with a few coats of linseed oil for a firm grip.
The custom fit top grain leather mask, included, was hand cut from premium veg tanned leather then dyed and treated with Sno Seal. It's been hand stitched with high quality polyester thread and properly welted so it will last as long as the axe itself.
This is a well balanced axe would make an exceptional worker!
