    This was my grandfathers hatchet/tomahawk I suspect from his younger days when he worked in the timber cutting industry in eastern Australia. I would love to know something about it. Trying to clean it currently to read the text which is on both sides of the head. The handle was not original as it looks very home made.

    Still can’t add the photo even tho I can see it in the preview.
    The head is about 125mm long, blade 84mm wide and head 60mm wide and has stamped lettering on solid part of head. It has 6 deep full length grooves from head to almost the cutting edge plus one very short groove. I can not find anything even remotely similar on the internet anywhere? Happy to email photos if any one thinks they can help.

    Yes. Very very similar however a hatchet sized one. It is in reasonable condition but not as good as this. I’ll try and post a picture soon.
    Thank you

    This one you've managed to load on pictures of is in much better condition than the example over loaded by cSa which has reached its limits of usefulness as an axe, now suitable for propping the door open.
