This is a big 10.5 lb. American hewing axe that I've been slowly working on. It's marked "Beaty and Sons - Chester Pennsylvania". The cutting edge is just shy of 15inches. The handle is an unfinished 40inch brush axe handle from HickoryHandleStore. M3mphis; the dimensions are 1 1/8 by 2 3/4 by 6 inches (for that big Jersey you're trying to haft). I haven't hafted this type before, anyone got any experience with these?
