  • Description: An early Colonial era hewing axe. This piece is quite unique as it is still mounted with an original handle from the period of use. The handle appears to be hickory, 22" long and is offset approximately 3" on the butt end from the head. The axe head is approximately 12 1/2" by 8". The head appears to be blacksmith fabricated out of iron, dating from 1750 to 1840. The heads are often found but seldom found with an original handle. A great display piece showing its obvious age and usage.
