OAL about 11” and weighs 2#. Head is a little loose on the handle but the handle is in great shape. Just needs to be tightened. The birds head end on the handle looks cool and makes a secure and very comfortable grip.

    I went over lightly with a wire wheel. There looks like some solder drips on the underside of the blade. No idea how/why it got there. I’ve looked it over closely and there are no cracks (see close up pics). I’ve also used this adze with no issues at all. Previous owner sharpened the edge. It cuts fine but could use touching up. Cutting edge is about 3 1/4”.

    Asking $45 OBO shipped CONUS.

    Thanks.

Box turtle for pizzaz only. Not included on the sale. He happened to walk by while I was working in the woods today. Thought he was neat.

    That adze was cool! Glad someone got it. The turtle was equally cool but you shouldn’t eat them on pizzaz lol. I would have kept him as a pet!

    Thanks all. Adze is sold.

    And @Kelly W , @stillman and @Hawaii, I agree, that turtle was cool. I left him to his business but I'll likely run into him again. It's been a good year for box turtle encounters tis year. I've seen more than usual, including several that I've moved off the road. I found one last week with the reddest eyes you've ever seen. I'll find the pic and post it up for you to see.

    Something like that, huh @Hawaii? I thought maybe Zombie turtle at first. He was totally cool though. Didn’t try to eat my brain.
