Different models of the double bit axes have been popular in the US since the last quarter of the 19th century because of it's balanced feel and versatility. Typically, one blade was sharpened to a finely honed, narrow "felling edge," while the second blade was ground slightly blunter, and used for knots and cutting near the ground where a finely sharpened blade was more likely to be damaged.
Today, the double bit axe is used as a Throwing Axe for timber sports. The head weighs 3 lb and the face of the bits are about 6". The Throwing Axe has a 29" straight hickory handle.
