Hey there! I'm trying to find out dimensions of a side axe like Stubai. Just interested in the size of the head as this info is for a blacksmith, but the more details I can get the better. Does anyone own one they wouldn't mind measuring up? Blade length/width, back, head width, basically as much info as possible.

Cheers!

Hi Vassago - welcome to the forum.

Mine isn't Stubai, it's similar but German. It does not have the nail - pull slot in the blade. It did have the claw at the back but I cut it off; most people do according to Mike Abbot :) Best not to include one in the first place is my thinking.

The length of the head is about 7" at the middle of the blade, 6 - 3/4" here at the top.


The beard is just short of 5 - 1/2"


The eye is 2 - 1/8" long


(And 7/8" wide.)

The width of the head at the back is 1 - 1/4" (though it doesn't look it here because of the chamfers)


And the depth of the head around the handle is just over 2 - 1/4".


Hope this helps.
