Working with Hands - James E. Price

  Embellished Axe  

This axe could have remained plain like most axes but the maker wished to embellish it with
his artistic touch.



The decorations are deep and must have been punched while the iron was red hot.

It has an applied steel cutting edge which measures six inches from front to back. It is a hewing axe and is decorated on only one side. This fine piece of art in the form of an axe originated in Bulgaria.

I have been carefully cleaning it and will haft it for use in woodworking demonstrations I do for Ozark National Scenic Riverways, National Park Service.
