    Not sure about technical name, but it's 4.25lb and it is a Plumb.

    I have found several, and currently have two awesome ones that I'm not selling and I feel exactly the same way.

    I did something rare for me and BOUGHT axe heads on ebay. I caught a rare deal and was able to get these 3 heads for $20 shipped. I think everyone else was sleeping. I thought that the double was a cruiser but it only looked small because the Flint Edge turned out to be 5lb.

    Worth it just for the big Flint Edge.

    Besides the pitting that flint edge looks to almost be unused! Lots of hardened steel left on that one!

    so here's that old splitter i was talking about http://imgur.com/a/Gqttm she found it on her trip up to pennsylvania, welded but, post revolution splitting maul. this thing is radically different from our splitters today, they knew what they were doing, short, stubby blade with a lot of weight. splits remarkably well for being a 237-ish year old design. now all i need is a poll-axe and i can go 18th century on those oaks.
    the stuff all over the carpet is where the dogs tore up some wool

    let me tell you something, boy oh by are these old welded bits hard. only one of my files, maybe a few small ones, can cut on them. harder than sagers, i never thought of really old axes of having this high of quality steel, more so than my legitimus, kelly or sager. these old masters knew their s***

    That style of poll axe is often called a 'killing axe'. Most date from the late 1800's or early 1900's.

    Looks like a true temper tomahawk in there, nice. Been trying to find one on eBay but they go for too much money
