I have recently discussed that my collection has grown too large. I have a lot of money tied up in my collection and it takes up a ton of space. I want to upgrade the rest of my life and that requires I make some hard choices and unload some of my prized possessions. Please help me raise some cash and make some room so I can move into a better place. You, yes you, can make a difference.
I have for sale a Windlass Steelcrafts / Museum Replicas War Axe
This axe is something I've had since the early- to mid-90s. It's been long discontinued. It's a neat piece and of a style not generally seen on the reproduction market.
Ornate heavy steel head with reinforced blade and four-sided sharpened back spike; langets extend three-quarters down the length of the hardwood handle.

Overall length: 25.5"
Weight: 2.2 pounds
Width of axe head: 3" x 5"
Back spike: 3.5" long
I've given it a gentle artificially aged / distressed look by applying surface scratches and scuffing, patina, and browned areas. This is all on the surface and can be removed with Scotchbrite if somebody should want to do that. This piece gives a nice impression, but if one to actually want to hit stuff with it, I'd suggest replacing the haft. It has the typical Windlass wooden haft, which means that it's not nearly as sturdy as it should be. This piece is not edged like a regular axe, but has a strongly reinforced edge making it more of a hammer.
MY ASKING PRICE: $140 or best offer
