I need a shovel more than an axe right now.
It ended up 24.5”. I tried to make a “mushroom” of the swell but didn’t want to just waste wood. The way it is shaped, the extra is out of the way and feels pretty solid.
I don’t really know what is considered standard length for them.
They aren’t native here but from pictures/descriptions they seem to get handled short for hatchet/building use (16-20”) and up to 28” for more general purpose. This one you can use one-handed if you grip it about a third from the swell. It feels like a boy’s axe but a couple of inches shorter.
