It is quite shiny, and a pain to photograph in a way that accurately conveys its appearance. I suppose that it could be bronze or even beryllium, but the color and high polish suggest that it is brass. Overall length including the handle is about 28-3/8. Length of the brass portion, from the sharp edge to the far end of the socket, is about 14-1/2. Width at the sharp end is about 3-7/8.
It weighs 4 pounds 6.4 ounces on my postal scale including the handle. Condition of the blade is good, with a shiny or glossy finish, and with quite a few casting flaws and scratches in the shiny surface. Putting a straightedge on the back yields a gentle S shape, touching in 3 places, with no gap more than about a 16th. Condition of the handle is very good, although it is rather large where it enters the socket.
There are some minor scratches and dings in the wood. I sell what I enjoy, and I collect antique woodworking tools and I enjoy photography! The queue is overflowing with tools right now, as they seem to be finding me faster than I can list them. So please keep watching my postings as I have LOTS more to list!
Searching my listings: I have lots to see! That will lead you to my extensive system of categories. You might ask: How can I know when you start new listings? Descriptions, and auctions with pictures only of the left side because the right side was trashed. I come from the handshake school of doing business, and hopefully you are like me and understand what that means.
What goes around, comes around. However, that doesn't mean that I won't make an occasional mistake. Please don't ask, the answer is no.
I package well, and have a great track record. I use the US Post Office for everything.Every year the US Postal Service raises rates in mid to late January, and this year is no exception. So I wont do that for you, or to you. PACKAGING: Please check my feedback -- I package well. I hope someday I will meet some of you as we trudge the happy road of tool collecting!
