    Looks like a nice froe.

    A good pile of rust. My hunting hasn't turned up a broad axe of yet.

    Thanks everyone! And yes Jim, I was excited about that. They are usually over $125 at antique stores around here.

    Thanks Stew! It is a Richard Wilcox 10 inches across and quick release. Now I have to decide if it is worth swapping out my old Colombian. Tough Choices!
