I own this hammer. I can take more pictures if you are interested.

I think this one, made by Ritter Steel, is beautiful looking but absolutely horrid to handle. Don't buy it unless you don't intend to do anything with it but hang it on your wall -- it is very heavy.

The Windlas I had traded for is somewhat similar to that one. This is the Windlass 600756 model that is being re-released. Quite nicely ground and the face corners quite biting sharp. I had trimmed down the haft in a multifaceted fashion, added some stain and rust. I am not sure if this was a wheelbarrow refit or not but it has been slimmed down a bit.






The current offering from Windlass shows a shoe for the haft. I am toying with adding leather lace or cord but haven't gotten back to yet another project.. About two pounds six ounces and roughly 34" overall. It is not terribly unwieldy with less forward mass than small axes the same overall length.

Cheers

GC
