Virginia Pole Axe
The original was found 70 years ago in a 1750's fortified house in Virginia. The head without the handle is 1 pound. It is made from 6150 steel and is heat treated.
You just need to take a file to them once in a while to keep the edge sharp.
Dimensions: 5 5/8" head with a straight grained hickory handle length of 16" long.
This is the Virginia Poll Axe with some custom hand forging. The blade has been flared out. This was also a common feature on some axes.
