Item C9 - E. Broad & Sons (St. Stephens, New Brunswick) 3 1/2 Slick.

Elisha Broad began making shipwright tools in St. Johns, New Brunswick in 1862, and by 1883 had been joined by two sons to form E. Broad & Sons in St. Stephens.  They made fine axes, adzes, chisels, slicks and other ship tools until about 1900, acquiring the Douglas Axe Mfg. Co in 1885.  This slick is a fine example of their work, having a clean and shiny long blade that is 3 inches wide, with flat sides and a blade that is 10 inches long to the shoulders, and 15 inches long to the top of the socket.  The decoratively turned ash handle is probably a replacement, but is perfect, and results in a slick that, overall, is 34 inches long.  It would be hard to find a nicer one.  Fine.
