A-23C; The British Belt Axe is very similar to those issued to British troops during the American Revolution. The pattern was used by both sides, and examples have been found in the camps of both British and American forces. The head weighs about 16 ounces and has a 3 1/2" cutting edge. It has a pronounced poll, which was coming into favor at this time. (A poll is the thickened part of the head opposite the edge. It helps to counter balance the weight of the blade, and strengthens the back of the head for pounding.) The axes comes with a 18" handle
The replacement handle is the "A-TD" style listed below.
