    Miniature carpenter's axe?

    A friend found this item while digging in his own backyard.I suspect it was part of a sculpture since it appears to be a bit small to be part of a child's tool set.It has an oblong hole for the handle as well.Nothing else has turned up.

    It might be a "salesman's sample" of a shingling hatchet

    Looks like a roofing hatchet.
    Hammer
    Nail puller
    Hatchet for cutting / sizing wood shingles
    also used to trim edges

    It's 2 1/2 inches long.

    I agree. Maybe a sample or a pre-lawyer toy.

    Re: Miniature carpenter's axe?

    Hmmmmm..... looks familiar!

    I have one made of lead, 1 1/2 inches, lost between the late 1860s and probebly no later than 1910, found in Montana.

    Mine has the words "WASHINGTON HATCHET" on it.

    It also has a small hole where a handle might have gone...

    Souvenier? Sample? Toy?

    Thanks Montana:
    Doubt that what he has is any different than yours,with the exception that the lettering has eroded away.I will have to search the name and see if I can find out more to tell him.

    A few things out there.It apparently is the head of a souvenir " Washington Hatchet" as used by George to taunt them tree huggers.And here I was thinking that we could prove that lepricans lived there.

    Re: Miniature carpenter's axe?

    I thought I had seen the hatchet before.

    Check out the third pic down in this recent thread in Todays Finds
    http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,178573.0.html

    I presume that's the 'full size' model
