    Ax restoration

    This ax head is from a 1855 home site. I am assuming it is from that time period. I put a store bought handle on it. I did remove the factory varnish and refinished it. The steel of this ax is 3X harder that the hatchet I restored. It was extremely rusted and pitted. The sharp edge must have slammed a few rocks and was flat in places. As I took the rust off at the back of the head there were two rows of manufacturer information but was not legible, could only recognize as letters. This will go to the owner of the field where it was found.
