    I got a 6 lb. flat head in 12-18 and have been using it during the wood cutting season for splitting oak. It works well for this. But the head is not 6 lbs. only 5 lb. 10 oz. . The fireman’s axe with the spike is likely 6 lbs.. Then don’t use the poll for the least amount of tapping on a wedge as it’s not heat treated and will mushroom. Thus, I have to carry another ax with a heat treated poll to drive my wedges.
