Large Osage Orange Bois d Arc handle chopping axe. This was made by me with lots of time and care put into cutting it just right with perfect finger grips. The finish is over 10 coats of gloss polyurethane over the handle and the head. The edge is clean and ready for chopping or hang it on the wall to admire the good looks of this beast. The head is over 7 inches long and a cutting edge of over 4 inches. The curve in the handle was designed to make this a two handed axe. One hand in the finger grips and the other on the curve of the handle. The axe is over 23.5 inches long and weighs just over 4.5 lbs. The handle is .75 inches thick at the grip and 1 inch thick at the head. Very cool axe.
