Right handed small hewing axe
This hewing axe is forged from a single piece of 4140 steel. The head is approximately 7 1/2" from bit to poll, approximately 5 1/2" wide and sharpened with a single bevel. The bit is curved slightly in 2 directions to both clear the eye and to help scoop out the chips. It is hung on a 19" hickory handle that has been stained and coated in linseed oil.
