Deep, Crispy ethching on this early True Temper Black Raven Axe with all natural patina! Lots of life left in the overlaid bit.
Overlaid bits had better steel and hold a sharp edge better. I kept this axe in as found condition. Would make a great restoration or fine as is. Ready to be hung on whatever style handle you prefer.The Black Raven was a top of the line axe and demanded a good amount of coin back in the day. Second only to the Kelly Registered Axe. Cutting Edge- 4.5", Length- 7". PLEASE refer to pictures for best item description. Has slight mushrooming on the top around the eye and poll (see pics). The usual nicks, scratches, pitting, and dings associated with 80+ year old axe. CHECK OUT MY OTHER LISTINGS FOR MORE VINTAGE AXES, KNIVES, TOOLS & MORE!
