Characteristic of this particular type is both the cutaway, slanted lower part of the socket, and the flange butt with a horizontal ridge; the socket and flange have a thick outline. Examples of this type have different blade shapes (see No. 513) that define them as chisels, picks, or axes, but the slanting socket and the flange define these pieces as belonging to the same group or type. The example here is an axe: the upper edge is horizontal, the lower curves up to the socket.

Dimensions:  length: 7 1/4 inches (18.4 cm)
