Dear buyers,

Fantastic shape on the axe head.

The axe head is rare because of the massive blade with right direction and the angle of the blade!!! - see the pictures...

The hewing axe is the preferred tool for flattening the surface of round logs. In past centuries, wood beams were often made by splitting the logs with some type of mallet and wedge, or glut.
Then they were surfaced with an adz or a hewing ax.
When iron axes became available, the hewing ax almost replaced the adz. Hewing axes were frequently used to roughly square the logs before they were sawn into boards with a pit saw.
Goose-wing broad axes were made in both left- and right-handed models.

The goose-wing handle was offset to the left or right by fitting it into a bent metal tube forged to the bit.Hand crafted.
