This is a beauty that's hard to find. The axe head is deeply etched with fire motifs, oak leaves and acorn themes. So getting the engraved version of this private purchase piece was expensive at the time. I would say less than 10% of these axes are engraved. So how do you know it's a Horster? This is a known Horster engraving pattern. Truly a thing of beauty. The substantial head remains intact with the cap. The sides are adorned with two carry rings secured with two flat head screws. The lower end cap is decorated with three lines and also secured with a screw but this time a dome head. All the fittings are plated with some honest wear and there's a bit of age toning. The wood on this is also in good shape being painted with a thick black enamel. There's also little wee hits and marks that one expects for an original example that was worn. There are a couple places where the paint is worn and I have clearly shown these. Great example.
