Two Forged Axes

Traditional axes made before the 20th century were generally forged of wrought iron with a steel cutting bit welded in place.

The Trade Axe is an even older style, but was make in Europe for trade in North and South America until after WWII.

There were a wide variety of axe styles used at the time of the American Revolutionary War.  George G. Neumann documents a lot of these in "Swords & Blades of the American Revolution".
