This is a vintage antique believed to be a farming tool of some kind. It is a very large quarter inch thick handforged sword with a 22 inch long blade razor sharp and over all length of 30.5 inches. Handle is definitely made for 2 hands made from one peice of wood full tang blade. I have restored the blade and had come out like new! Fully functional blade solid sharp and ready for anything ! Splits wood like butter better then my axe. Please email me with questions this is a one of a kind blade.
