War Trench Axe

This comes from my late father's collection. I remember him purchasing this axe at an estate auction in the early 1980's. If it could only speak. It's in the same condition it was when he bought it.

Thought I'd share. Sorry about the photo quality. I'm off to Morphy's Auction House and thought I'd post this before I left.

Quite frankly, Firemans axes, are longer and the head is shaped quite differently. This is often referred to as a German pioneer axe. There are multiple images which confirm this, all over the Internet. Perhaps me using the wording “Trent axe”, was improper. It is still a nice example, with original, gray green German paint. Just thought I’d share it.
