I was planning on leaving it as is for the collection and not for use. But thank you for for the advice. Plus this one is a Chinese made example I'm pretty sure. But I liked the way it is zip tied to the original haft and has the label. Don't see that every day. I really hope to find a S&N sleeper pattern. They come around once in awhile but are usually pretty worn. About the size... Have you found much use for a medium size broad axe?
