    Very old looking hand tool. Hand hammered. Pretty heavy in weight: 3 kgs. 14.3" Long. I came across it on a flea market in The Netherlands.

    Any info about its age or use would be great!

      Possibly a brick layers hammer, the flat end for chipping off excess lumps of baked clay from new bricks.

      Thank you very much, Irishcollector! Your suggestion certainly sounds plausible.

      It looks like a twybil.
