    Axe head!

    Gday all I have been using a small Forrest axe/boys axe which is in between a hatchet and a normal axe so it was a homemade one it was a joy to use so I'm the hunt for a axe head not to fussed what sort of head as long as it's not a splitting maul head haha so if anyone has something a photo and price would be amazing would love a kelly axe head but will consider most !

    Changed my mind sorry the Kelly is a black eagle, I probably shouldn't sell it. The Plumb USA is 4 1/2 lb and pretty mint. You can have for $30 pp

    I picked up an estwing axe a while back and love it, single piece of steel for head and handle same as their hammers with a good rubber handle. Small enough for one hand up can use to if you need to get serious. Quite a narrow head though so no use for splitting
