Product Reference: CL-210
Made in Austria by Leonhard Muller & Sons forge which is over 300 years old (imagine that for a second or two!!).
This item normally comes with a lovely polished head but this particular head has got some superficial tarnishing. Rather than send it back to Austria we are saving the travel miles by selling it 15% below normal retail. We are also telling the forge off.
BUT - The head doesn't stay polished for long anyways as you start log chopping so we are not sure why they polish them in the first place. Mind you, Uncle Albert polishes his head and the glow doesn't last long there either.
Heavy - you have to have muscles like Fraser to use this beast.
160mm cutting edge (6")
800mm (31") hickory handle
These tools are from either
A collection of tools recently acquired by Classic Hand Tools from a customer who has decided to condense his big arrmoury of hand tools to more closely reflect his future workshop needs
From shelves and boxes we have cleared so that we can increase the distance between workstations at Classic Hand Tools (particularly Fraser's)
Slightly damaged/soiled or old stock we need to say goodbye to.
We may use the following grading system (as used in antique tool auction sales) to further inform you of the condition of the tool
G.... Good (usually means it has been used but in perfectly good working order)
G+ ...an improvement on G, usually just cosmetic
G++....used but in very good condition.
F-....very small cosmetic blemishing
F... as new
We do, if anything, slightly down grade the condition of a tool so when you receive it you are not disappointed!. You do have our no quibble return policy to rely on.
