Iron pick-axe: with a vertical copper alloy socket, closed at the top, and a long, thin iron blade. There is a stylised bird's head on the front of the socket beneath the blade and a projection at the back with a square hole. There are two circular holes at the bottom of the socket, presumably for attachment of the axehead to a haft.
