Default Another Axe head

A recent post made me think of this. Bought from an old collector, a guy named Bruce Axt, some time ago.

Length is 8.25", edge about 5".

Nothing on the provenance.

Does not feel fake to me. Bruce had a good eye and felt it was authentic.

I find that inside false edge interesting. I wonder if that would make it better for raking a shield.
