Axe shape question
« on: April 16, 2018, 09:44:08 AM »
Sharpening axes the other day, double bit ones, and I have one that just doesn't fit with the others.  The blade is narrow from cutting edge to cutting edge but the cutting edges are super wide, looks like a fat pumpkin.  I have falling axes so I know there are certain designs for certain purposes.  This thing looks like a trainer axe because the blade is so wide you could never miss.  Any ideas what this is?  Any suggestions on where to search- blade forums etc.?

Sounds like an executioner's axe.
