Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I've recently took possession of my grandfathers old axe and I'm planning on doing a faithful restoration at some point soon. I've not seen a small axe like this before with the blade on one side and a pointed pickaxe end on the other. I was hoping you all might be able to tell me what type of axe this is? What would it typically be used for? I appreciate there's not much sense of scale in the pictures but it is a smaller axe, definitely more hatchet sized, designed for single-handed use.
