That head had no marks not even the Circle N I hear about. Nice steel with a sharp ring to it when a file hits it. There was some red paint. This head is just over 4 pounds. The handle is a 30" Handle House 1630 AA grade Hickory with the octagon option. I flame harden/burnish myself as I am adding a mixture of Tung/Linseed/Teak oils with a couple of waxes [Bees cut lightly with Lanolin] all heated to a fine cream paste. I flame heat the handle, then rub the wax cream on the hot wood. Wait till it cools off and repeat until all pore are filled. If done right you get get the cream to penetrate when you rub it on and once again when hit with the torch [although some will burn off] to reheat the handle. At that point I use a little Teak oil with steel wool and go over the handle to remove rough spots or wax build up... Here in the Redwoods they did something similar with Neats foot oil /Bees wax as a way to treat the wood and keep a grip on the axe.
