Yes, & cleaned up better than I expected. Better try not to kill him! Thanks. Not sure how old they are but would like to find out, trying to find someone who actually knows rather than guesses is difficult. A similar style albeit more modern looking can still be bought in old ironmonger shops, just for comparison I can take a photo of them if anyones interested? Thanks & sorry.... Regarding the adze, it's currently close to being clean after multiple vinegar soaks & scrubs & I'm really surprised to see it might be wrought iron, plus there is a faint stamp. Pics soon.
