    Pretty cool. Any idea of the history?

    Unfortunately no. Uncle Melvin who flipped homes passed away about 10 years ago. It was found on one of his flips. The handle to head area was elliptical.

    Well, then it's not an adze. In the first picture it looked like two separate pieces.

    Figured it out. Its a turpentine box head axe. Makes sense for this area. 1800s.

    Finding a couple cat heads in the barn should have been a clue. He had all the other tools .
