Atha Tool Co. Maul 7lb —

This is an Atha Tool Co. (1884-1913) woodchopper’s maul, 7lb head, straight bit. The head is in great condition with some chips around the poll, no mushrooming, and a clear and deep Atha “horseshoe” stamp. Most maul heads look like they’ve been through a war long before they reach this age! The head has been thoroughly cleaned, sharpened, and fitted with a new 32″ ash handle.

$40.00
