Broad Ax 5 inch Cutting Edge Offset Hatchet
This is a nice quality 5" wide at the cutting edge, broad axe/hatchet marked "CAST STEEL" on one side. As you can see in the pictures it is an offset axe/hatchet, set up currently for a right-handed user with the flush edge to the left looking down on the head in a work position. The hatchet length handle included is 16" long. The handle appears to be a newer replacement but fits very snug into the head. The handle is in very good condition, a few minor stains. The head appears to have had been stored in a somewhat damp area at some time in the past as there is some pitting noted, but no rust. We also note that there is two are (next to each other) where the cutting edge material has chipped off in sort of a flake amount that leaves there edge still rather sharp in the flaked off area since the sharpening stock is taken off the other side. I decided not to sharpen it any further than is now is, as it is a good user as it is. Overall in good useable condition!
