And here it is a couple of months later. Wow. Highly polished. Any marks are the preservative that I didn't fully wipe off. 3 lb - 5oz on my scale. 6" from the edge to the poll. The eye is roughly 2-1/8" x 7/8" at the top. Now I just need to figure out the haft. Tuatahi shows a 23" handle on theirs. This needs something sexy. Hmmm.
I do have to laugh that the package was marked 'fragile' - it was very well packed - rubber edge guard, wrapped tightly in several layers of newspaper, then in a box with wooden spacers for support, a double layer of bubble wrap, and then the outer plastic shipping bag.

Yeah, I ordered one, too.
Payed at the end of March so I'm guessing it'll be a couple more weeks. Even though I'm pretty sure the handle will be too short, I figured I'd give it a try. Can always rehang it.
I look forward to more pics once you get a new handle on it and to hear how it performs.
