Vintage tools - axe Y299
Up for sale is an early & unusual antique FRENCH PATTERN MINERS AXE.
Stamped with JB & what looks to be a hand plane on the blade. This looks to be a fairly early piece & was the only one in this pattern out of the 3000 tools in the collection.
Size - The blade is 68mm wide & measures 270mm long overall, it's an impressive piece.
Weight - 1.85kg
This axe is in authentic antique condition, a dark patina & some pitting as to be expected with a possible 18th century tool, a nice laminated bit on the cutting edge. This axe was part of the Longfils tool collection & purchased in France in 2019.
