Manton Planters Axe
Kevin's Campaign Furniture Collection
This is an exact reproduction of an original tool popular in the Eastern English colonies during the Victorian era. It has a hand-forged Damascus steel blade, brass head, solid rosewood shaft and brass end with a pointed steel tip. The blade is quickly removable and can be rapidly placed in one of several different configurations for chopping, hoeing, pruning, weeding, planting, or use simply as a walking stick. The flat brass end of the head can be used as a hammer. The shaft marked in centimeters on one side and inches on the other was used to quickly measure the depth at which crops were planted. Equally at home in the hands of a woodsman, gardener, horticulturalist, camper or hiker. 36" long.
