89 1/2″ overall when assembled. 65″ ash wood shaft. 24 1/2″ high x 9″ wide black finish 1055 carbon steel head with a fully sharpened battle-ready blade spike and hook. This ancient forestry tool was originally used by peasants to hook creeping vines and hard-to-reach branches, clear foliage and lop heavy limbs from trees. It evolved into a massive combat fighting weapon which was fast, agile and ferocious. The “Bill” could hook, entangle, thrust, stab, slice and chop with equal ease and oppose even heavily armed and mounted opponents.
