Dear buyers, up for auction is that PRIMITIVE,  MORE THAN 200 YEARS OLD, bearded HEWING axe head.

This beautiful genuine antique goose wing axe head dates from the mid 19th c. 

Fantastic shape on the axe head.

The axe head is rare because of the massive blade with right direction and the angle of the blade!!! - see the pictures...

The hewing axe is the preferred tool for

flattening the surface of round logs. In past

centuries, wood beams were often made by

splitting the logs with some type of mallet and

wedge, or glut. Then they were surfaced with an

adz or a hewing ax. When iron axes became

available, the hewing ax almost replaced the

adz. Hewing axes were frequently used to

roughly square the logs before they were sawn

into boards with a pit saw.

Goose-wing broad axes were made

in both left- and right-handed models. The

goose-wing handle was offset to the left or right

by fitting it into a bent metal tube forged to the

bit. 

Region of origin East Europe.

More than 200 years old tool!

Hand forged/ hand crafted.

Used for carving, hewing.

Old "bearded" "viking" design.
