18th Century Halberd :
This is one of my prize axes an 18 th century halbred tomahawk or pole arm as many pole arms were cut down into hand weapons . A halbred is as rare as they come , and they are the prize of any collection . This axe is as good as it gets ! Forged of two peices of flat iron with the weld at the center of the axe as you can see in the pics , this is true 18 th century forging . This axe has A great dark patina with beautiful lines and file work . There is a markers mark of an anchor with in a jagged edge box . The measurements are as such from the cutting edge of the axe to the tip of the flat spike is 9 7/8 " , the spear point is 9 " and 2 1/4 " at the widest point . The edge of the axe blade is 4 " wide. The flat spike is 4 1/2 " long and 1 " wide . The base of the axe the " shaft " is 6 " long this is tapered the last 4 " to incert into the handle . This axe is perfect in size , shape , form , patina and forging techniques . This is as good as it gets !I'm only letting this axe go becouse I have too , I'm down sizing
