    Prost!

    Here's one I found a couple weeks ago. It has a unique opening that so far the only explanation I have received is that it may have gotten that way from being used as a wedge and is just deformed. That may be, but the reason I question that is it is perfectly symmetrical side to side and top to bottom. There is no deformation to the back of it with the butt being perfectly flat with nice distinct edges. If anybody has any ideas let me know. I would love to be able to date this. The pictures here are before electrolysis, I'll post some later after she's cleaned up.

    One more. This one is hatchet sized. First pic is right after I got it home and the second is after a little electrolysis. I need to seal it though. What's best, an oil or urethane?

    Great Idea!! Here is my first and only axe head, found just the other day. Its soaking in apple cider vinegar right now and I will post an updated photo when its done.

    TennesseeGal,

    I'd love to see a photo when it is cleaned up. I got two axe heads in two hunts here--one like you found and one like Dan found. I'll clean 'em up and get 'em posted.


    Cheers,

    Hey Dan! I'm not the expert here but I'm going to pass on what I learned from others here. I'm soaking my axe head in apple cider vinegar as directed by some of the more experienced relic hunters here. Some mentioned using a dremel also after the soak to knock off some left over stuff. I've been soaking mine for about 5 days and it has a way to go. I'm going to change the vinegar out tomorrow. You'll want to rinse it well with water and seal it after it dries. Someone recommended a product but I'll have to look it up. Do a search on TNet for axe heads and you'll find some posts.
