The head looks good, so a bit of a clean and new handle it will be great
That is a beautiful looking Axe JBW Added, I hope you don't think I'm being rude but please don't over clean it
Actually thinking about it I would first use a scrubbing brush and soap, then see what it looks like after drying (maybe add a drop of oil when dry)
Thank you JI really enjoy reading about this stuff A few years ago I picked this one up and decided to use it with the old handle (very light head on a medium lenth handle), it broke after a few days, but I didn't lose anything trying the old handle and it might have been good

Vinegar also removes the rust. If washing with wàter, consider spraying it with WD 40 to displace the water, then use that drop of oil Sparky suggested.
