In very good condition overall. Clean stamp free of rust and pitting. Weighs approximately 3.5 lbs. 10 inches long from bit to bit and the bits are 4.5 inches wide. On the backside of the axe is marked “Wear Safety Goggles” and an “M1″ stamp. The axe is pretty much ready to go with a handle it just needs to be sharpened.
Recommended handle blank 28-36” long straight double bit blank preferably ash or hickory unless it is going to be used as a wall hanger or show piece! In which case curly ash, Osage orange, or black locust would be unique.
