Description: The hand forged head is 52100 carbon steel with an antique patina. The head has been sculpted with a triple chevron and carved hammer. The right side is engraved with "L.C. Hansen In the year of our Lord 2009" (don't ask me why it says 2009 and not 2008!). He has inlaid an 1869 nickel into the blade. On the left: "What we do in life echoes for eternity". The head has a tapered leading edge and heal. The haft has a single pewter collar and an antiqued titanium end cap and permanent plug at the top.
The head length is 8 1/2 in. and the cutting edge is 3 1/2 in. The haft measures 21 1/2 in. long. This piece is very sturdy and well weighted for chopping as well as hammering. Exceptional work throughout!
