The sap is down and the days are short so it must be greenwood time! For sale is this vintage side axe. The head is a kentish pattern and is currently handled for right-hand use. It can be rehandled for left-hand use as the head is symmetrical front to back.
It has very much been a working tool since I've owned it and has been ground and sharpened accordingly. Ive used it for dressing hewn logs. Its also good for green woodworking applications and has a comfortable weight to it. I suspect it was originally designed as a barrel makers (coopers) tool.
