It is marked "DEINCH" though the more clued up will soon work out that's all that remains of MADEINCHINA.
Still, it looks good and it's a bit of fun.

Someone has obviously heated up and beaten out the eye of the axe to create their very own Norsemans axe, it's on a four foot long ash helve so it makes a great walking stick.

Ive had those old diamond brand tools before, the padlocks were total rubbish but I've still got a couple of chisels knocking about, the best you can say for them is that they're OK for the money. I expect the temper was ruined when they heated it up to beat the eye into a round shape for the round helve.
