Tap Handle #181: Wychwood - Hobgoblin English Ale Ax

Tap size:  11" tall x 6.25" wide
Rarity:  Very Rare
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

Originally this tap was entry #6 on my original wishlist. I was thrilled when I was able to get my hands on one. It's not very detailed, but it doesn't need to be - thematically it's one of the coolest taps in the collection. It could have presented mounting issues due to the width of the ax, but in this case it's a non-factor - you'd have to mount it backwards, with the sign facing away from you, for it to be a problem. Speaking of the sign, it has a really beautiful label on it. The tap isn't quite scarce, but it can be hard to find, and it is definitely expensive.
