This was an axe found by my grandfather many years ago. Looks like it got broken and reused. There is a definite flat on the top

Wow thats a real nice find
In photo 2 can i see like a groove/smooth part where the binding would have been?

Would you mind if i host them from the forums instead of clicking through to flikr?
I'll sort it if you agree :thumbsup:

Is that a preferred method for pictures? I know a lot of other forums prefer hosting

Yes it is cause it gives the reader a much better experience of the forum :D

Lovely find. I agree with Bruce about the binding groove. :thumbsup:
