For a similar example with this form see figure 42 on page 52 of "Tomahawks and Frontiersmen Belt Axes" by Hartzler and Knowles. The heavy steel head measures 6-7/8" overall with a 2-3/4" blade with crescent 3-1/2" cutting edge. The cross section is flat and rounded at top and bottom of both sides. The heavy 2-3/4" spike tapers to a sharp point. The accompanying tag from Peyton C. "Bud" Clark states "Spike ax - Exhibit Loan at Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center in Washburn, North Dakota (Fort Mandan). From Ed Steerman Collection, Lewiston, Idaho." The associated old haft measures 19" overall and has an old red painted surface. CONDITION: Head retains a dark heavy patina. Haft shows some losses to paint and appears later than the head. A very nice spike ax with museum provenance. DMG
