    Around 9.75" bit to bit. Weighs 3lbs 5oz. I put a file to one bit and it's skating so she's still got temper and it will take a good file to cut through the rust. If it was ever stamped it's long gone. Heavy rust and pitting but it will make a good user. Has a nice coat of pollen on one side and sports a high centerline.

    You must be a regular participant in this sub forum and post pictures once you have it sharpened and hung. That's all I ask. Shipping is free to anywhere in the USA. First qualified poster gets it.

    I am not vying for the head but I think the in-house giveaway is awesome.

    Great idea, Giveaways are a regular thing over on the Traditional Folding Knife sub-forum. I'm not after this one as there are others that can make better use of it than I can. I'll have to remember to do something similar one of these days. I have literal piles of good heads that need a little love.:thumbsup:

    If that was a boys axe or hatchet I'd be all over it.

    Great act of generosity here man, I hope whoever gets it really puts it through its paces.

    I don't see any markings. A wire wheel might turn something up.

    I am surprised there are no takers - it looks like it would make an excellent project.
