    It was definitely kind of the Spaniards lend out all those patterns to the world!

    550E is interesting too.
    Hairy Clipper, Fmont and Yankee Josh like this.

    550H whistles my kettle a bit. It represents what I know as a typical archaic Nederlands timmermansbijl, carpenter's axe, but it's called what they call it. Definitely a curious case because this representation[​IMG]
    of an axe with similar features also includes a time frame and guess what? it's right in the middle of the Eighty years War. Not until I saw this funny catalogue page did I even see a hint of a connection of these axes with the Spanish.
