So what do they call the style of the smaller one in this picture? My grandparents had one in with the garden tools and I remember chopping on tree roots with it as a kid.  I thought it was super neat that it had a hammer poll on it. I guess the notch is for pulling nails?

Some folks call them carpenters hatchets, shingling hatchets, I call them hammer hatchets. I also call them harder to get your hands on. I smile sometimes when folks are surprised I cut them up. My feeling is if it needs a little mod to make it better for today, so be it. I try not to get too sentimental.

Post by: Zeus on February 05, 2012, 09:04:15 PM
I wish I'd remembered to snag that one from my grandparent's house when I moved. (I do get sentimental, lol!) But it was ground down way short. It must have been sharpened on a bench grinder so it lost a lot of material from the edge quickly.

I like those little hawks you made by modding them though. They look like they would swing a little faster and be more handy.

Flint hand axe, approx 250,000 years old that was found locally to where i live, this particular one was shown to me when i paid a visit to one of our small local museums to study the flint tools, the Curator went and got this out of storage so i could have a look at it, but the best one is this

Paleo tools are awe inspiring... especially after one realizes the tremendous amount of skill and knowledge required to make good tools. I struggle to get a passable knapped edge on anything in my electrically lighted garage in the summer.... imagine the conditions 485,000 years ago!

I've handled medieval manuscripts and was impressed with the history in those objects, and I can only imagine the sense of connection with our prehistoric ancestors one would feel  handling those stone tools.

Thanks for sharing!

I live not that far away from some Neolithic Flint Mines and to this day i find Neolithic scrappers and flakes in the garden, last one i found was dated to be 6000 years old, it blows my mind to think that someone 6000 years ago made and used this and here i am all that time later holding the same tool, i dont care what anybody says, you get a connection with the past with things like that, let alone something nearly half a million years old, i wonder how many of our present tools will be around in half a million years time?

Yep knapped stone tools are fascinating. I had the privilege of helping out on an excavation a couple of years ago and found a few beads and a projectile point while screening dirt removed from the excavation. Of course everything was cataloged and photographed and all that jazz.

Plumbs are not too awful rare, ones in as good of shape as yours Kep...may be (nice axe bro). They were produced during a time when "made in the USA" really meant something. Here are a couple I had handy.

Wow, that's a hefty markup!  It's probably the customs tariff or something that drives up the price. I shipped a knife to Canada a while back and customs charged my customer $40.00 to get it out! If you do everything "by the book" it's prohibitively expensive.

LOL. I have a closet that is getting to be very full. I've stopped buying axes because I have no where to store them. It is funny, here in NY, the first thing people think of when they see an axe is "Hey, that guy must kill people". No one ever thinks, "Hey, he must chop a lot of wood". :)

Oh.. Oh.. that King's Forge is purrrrty! Where did you get that?

I got it from King's Forge: http://kingsforgeandmuzzleloading.com/page9 (http://kingsforgeandmuzzleloading.com/page9)  I replaced the original handle because it was super thin and flat.  It was also just pressure fit.  I replaced it with a piece of a warped axe handle that is wedged at the top.  The overall length is 10-1/2" and it weighs .81 lbs.  I think it will make a nifty bag axe.

Damn nice choppers guys 


Here's a couple of mine and a couple I am slowly redoing  for a  friend. Hoping to  get a  raw branch of ash from another friend to carve up a handle for  the big old plumb that belonged to a friends father. I have no idea how old it is but my  friend is mid 50s and he said his stepfather had it  long before he was  around so guessing has to be near  60 plus years old. The hammer hatchet was also his stepfathers and I am going to restore it  to

The  hawk is mine and also a pic of the one gifted to me  by upthecreek :)


Big old plumb handle bout 36 inches long guessing she's gotta be a 5 pounder she's heavy but damn fun lol

Digging that Husqvarna/Hults Traditional Forest Axe (2011/12 model).  I wonder if Husqvarna is going to come out with a mid-size between that and their hatchet, a la GB SFA... Either way, sweet axes at a great price.

I doubt it. Husqvarna does not seem to have it's heart in the axe business. They are a huge company. If you want something in that price range, and are willing to do some work, you may want to check this out: http://woodtrekker.blogspot.com/2010/11/cheap-alternative-for-gransfors-bruks.html It has worked very well for me.

Thanks Trekker.  I actually read that blog entry quite some time ago, and thought "Man, that would be sweet, but I just don't think I want to do the work!"

I really enjoy following your posts/blog, though.  Good information from a guy who's clearly use a LOT of axes.

I dig the Revolutionary hawk as well.  It's made in India, so it may be hit-or-miss on the quality, but mine is pretty decent.  It chops as well as the others, but it also weighs a little more.

Half Axe's half axe:

I had the head forged from 5160 steel to my specifications by a guy in Maine about five years ago.  Shortly after I received the head, the guy went out of business, citing health problems, and so I have no contact information for him.  It's too bad, he did a great job for me.  I've included the original design specification in the pictures.  I used a small hickory pick-axe handle to make the handle for it.  It was a little bit like work using a hand rasp to shape it to fit.  I made the bit sheath and belt hanger.  Handle OAL is 22 inches.

I have the water bottle, small first aid kit, a psk, fire kit in the compass pouch, I carry my phone and a bandanna in the black pouch on the back, the mora, the hatchet, and a coil of cord. It weighs about 8 pounds loaded. My camera will fit in the front too.

ive had a couple of people ask to see my felling axe in the past, so i thought id add it to this thread, made by Elwell with 4.5Lb head, i have no idea how old this is, but is aint a young un for sure, ive not used this for a little while (chainsaws are so much less effort) now and the edge could really do with a damned good sharpen looking at it, might do that tomorrow :)

That's the near bottom slice of a big ole oak that fell last fall and took the power out for about 3 days. It's about 5 feet in diameter and we figure it weighs 3 hundred pounds. Great for tossing axes at!

well..it's a true temper black raven and as collectable as it gets. Funny...I was just wondering if you want to edge it. I just want it super cleaned. Not ground..if that makes sense. The edges, rough wacker vs chopper, are quite plain. I really don't want much metal removed, but I know you could shine it right up!

These are a couple of axes I made.  Of course, they're a bit smaller than your normal axes.  I made them in a jewelry class I took a few years back.  Both are sterling silver.  The one on the left was made with a piece of square wire that was twisted for a handle area.  The bit and spike were cut out of sheet with a jeweler's saw and then soldered on to the wire.  All shaping was done with jeweler's files and sandpaper.  The axe on the right started as wax, then cast in silver.

Here is an older Council tools boys axe I ran across at a yard sale for 3$. Compared to a new Council tools boys axe. Compared to the one I did yesterday. The Councils are 3 1/2 lbs overall vs 4 3/4 lbs for the chopper. The Councils are 27 inches overall length vs 30 inches for the chopper. A 3 1/2 inch cutting edge vs 5 1/2 inch cutter for the chopper.

Here's my first ever Axe hang and restoration(If you can call it that)  It's a Dunlap which isn't glorious by any means but makes a great first axe to hang and practice with.  I actually like it so much I take it on trips when I need a big axe.  The wood wedge is piss poor but the metal wedges are doing their job as it hasn't came loose at all.  So until it does this is how it'll stay.

Specs:
3.5lb head
33 inch handle
4.5 inch edge

Thanks guys

When I hang an axe I just care that the head is straight on the handle and that it won't come off...This was my first one and it was awhile ago.  The neatness of the wedge's has gotten a lot better since this one.  But like I said.  It hasn't came loose yet after a few years of use.

This one is going to get pounded on in an attempt to fix it. You can see the eye is crushed and it's bent like a noodle. Going to get the eye fixed, the head straightened and sharpened up.

Just a thought, but that "bent" axe, even though the hole for the handle is distorted, may have been an attempt by someone to  make one of those axes used to square logs (I can't  remember the name, but  I think it is something like a Hewing Broadaxe) The ones that usually have a "bent handle" for doing the sides of the logs they are hewing..


I dunno..I think they only have one side of the edge sharpened also tho. Some of you folks know better than me. But I just thought to mention it to see what was said. I'm still learnin'..
:)
Title: Re: AXE, SAW AND HAWK PORN
Post by: rogumpogum on April 17, 2012, 12:39:22 AM
Yeah - I think the bent one is bent on purpose for hewing. I have another somewhere with the handle still on it that's curved.
Title: Re: AXE, SAW AND HAWK PORN
Post by: easy_rider75 on April 18, 2012, 08:46:00 PM
It may  just be a hewing  axe  cause the  hatchet ya sent to  me has almost a similar curve to it not as drastic  but still  more of a curve  then most  do.

Anyways this is the Craftsman Bax-40 sent me a few weeks ago just started  sanding  it down tonight will be taking it to my  buddies grinder  doing a serious reprofile on it she's a butter knife but has  good potential then I may try and carve up  a new handle go threw his woodpile see if anything is wroth trying

I do throw it, I also have an H&B Forge hawk I bought around 1990, it gets thrown more than Edgar's. Edgar's holds such a fine edge for such a long time It gets used more for camp chores.

The first Cracker House I lived in was back in the early '70s in th Jonesville  Settelment about 15 miles or so from Gainsville. We just bought on built in 1886 you can see it and the 21.2 acre property in this link.

Well I was at the surplus store yesterday. They had a 10% discount on everything but vehicles and had free coffee and cake. (How could I pass it up?) Sadly I came home with two more axes for the pile. I doubt I will ever use them, I'd have to break some twenty axes before I get to these, but I couldn't let them sit there all alone.

(http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac262/sfc1620/IMAG0284.jpg)
Vintage Gr?nsfors Bruk and S?ter Banko. Still in the original protective oil paper. Excellent alignment and good grain, and I firmly believe axe handles where better made a few decades ago.

(http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac262/sfc1620/IMAG0283.jpg)
I also picked up a saw from the "Orsa" company. I love them and have two just like it, just none in this condition. You usually find them at farm auctions all rusted up. With proper care and sharpening it can evidently last a life time and then some.

Oh, $10 each for the axes, $5 each for extra handles (not shown) and $4 for the saw. (Before the 10% discount....) :D

Whoaah! Sealegs!  $10 Each & a 10% discount. For $9 you couldn't get the  handle around here let alone the head too, on a "cheapy" type axe. Let alone a higher end make one...


Great deal on every thing! I don't even thnk I have paid less than $25 for a handsaw either.


You made a great find!

I must say, since I have been following the boards,flea markets,auctions, etc looking for axes. This bundle is the all time best I have ever seen especially  for that price.  Great score! I like the Banko with the lugs.

Yeah they came cheaper since they aren't army surplus, civ.defence stuff is usually a bit cheaper.

Still spent over $150 though. Zink pails, more saws, winter clothes, wool blankets etc. Burn the receipt and try to smuggle it into the garage past the wife. :D

Does anyone remember a product, it was a hatchet head, that you carried in a belt pouch, it was threaded so you could just screw in a branch from a tree to use for a handle.  I have forgotten the brand name, but it seemed like a very handy item.

I don't remember the name either, John. But I am pretty sure that the fella who came up with the idea was from Virginia. If that would help in your search. It was carried like ya said , in a holster or beltpouch.
I would like one of them myself. Wished I had done so long ago.

it's pretty weird. it was a hatchet made by Ames (True Temper) but then plumb put their sticker on it and sold it as a "sport axe"

here's an ebay link (http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-Plumb-sport-axe-hatchet-original-handle-sheath-ames-/160794681073?_trksid=p4340.m185&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC.NPJS%26its%3DI%252BC%26itu%3DUA%26otn%3D5%26pmod%3D350508082794%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D8179612059569092486) showing the pics with both the Ames stamp and the Plumb sticker.

Thnx! I am familiar with Ames/True Temper & Plumb( my first hammer was a plumb, still have it).
Hadn't ever seen that red one before that I could remember, but it seemed a bit familiar. To my knowledge I just can't place, where I might have seen one, but I think I may have, since it is quite different & really caught my eye.
Thnx again!

lol.  You're too much and you didn't need to do anything in the first place.  I'm just a sucker for axes more than any other tool. I'm definitely looking forward to making over the Garant for my main user in the 3/4 size.  I suppose I'll post a thread on the makeover just for fun.

Is there any holy grail axe head you're on the lookout for?  I'll keep my eyes peeled for you on my local searches here.

I haven't had much time to shoot stuff. I have been doing more longer actual trips, which means I have to leave the camera gear at home. If you have an idea for something you would like to see, I'll be glad to do it. I also got a lot of (http://bladesandbushcraft.com/Smileys/krystl-white/censored.gif)ing from some people at certain places about the videos, so it kind of put me off to the whole thing.

As for the videos, I was thinking about some carving or shelter building with just an axe and a knife. Basically, all we can learn to do with a small forest axe or a scandinavian forest axe :P

Ha, I actually made a video about that, but it was during the winter, and there was too much wind noise to hear what I was saying. I'll try to redo it.

The ones I use are:
1. Older model Husqvarna hatchet
2. The cheap alternative to the small forest axe that I made out of a Northern Tool hatchet (don't actually use it that much, but if I needed an axe that size, this would be it)
3. A Council Tool boy's axe
4. A vintage full size Plumb Jersey pattern axe (don't actually have much of a reason to use it these days)

Post by: OutdoorEnvy on June 07, 2012, 03:23:47 PM
Cool.  I had a feeling you'd say the Husqy hatchet.  I think it'd be cool to put that hatchet up against a little Norlund hatchet.  I'm trying to find one so if I do one day maybe I'll send it to you for a hatchet battle showdown of sorts.  haha.

Yeah I love the Cheaper Alternative to the Gransfors project axe idea of yours.  If I didn't already have a Wetterlings LHA I would have bought the kit you're selling already.  That really is a handy size axe.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on them.  The swedish fans would hate hearing you prefer the council boys axe over the gransfors sfa.  lol.  But a great axe is a great axe and deserves to be used as such, regardless of maker

Here's a few pics of the almost finished Collins boy's axe.  I just need to clean up the rust a little more and put a final edge on it.

I like to coat the wood wedge in a mixture of wood glue and a little wood filler, this of course helps secure it and I use a steel wedge.  If there's any cracks in the haft from the steel wedge the glue mixture will do it's job.  I've never had an axe head slip using this method and since my axes are users that's how their hung

I have a full size axe and a pulaski that were my dads, a Gerber camp axe 18" it's good for making fire wood smaller but sucks for carving. I also have a Riflemans Hawk I was hoping to use for carving and what not but no go, It needs to be heavily modified for me to really like it, so I wanna sell it, I got too much other stuff to do. Now I have a nice hatchet, a Condor Woodwoorker from Woodstrekker, I used it a bit earlier this week and I think it's going to work just right for what I need. As soon as this blasted rain stops I'll really put it through it's paces.

These are not new pics, but they're new to here.  Hope that works for you all... ;)

I love my Canadian Boy Scout hatchet.  It set me back a fin.  A fiver.  Five bucks.

(http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u496/kanukkarhu/boyscoutaxe.jpg)

Here's most of what I have (besides a coupla yard and truck axes).  The saw is now OD green, BTW:

(http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u496/kanukkarhu/axesandsaws.jpg)

Katie the Wonder Dog sniffing the pee at the end of the log, which I had cleverly kicked some snow on... to no avail, obviously.

(http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u496/kanukkarhu/IMG_6509.jpg)

I have a couple others - a poorly modded shingling hatchet I botched, a Hudson's Bay Norlund waiting to be hung, and another German made hatchet which also needs new wood (I disremember the name right now).

Pretty much it, I'm afraid!

EDIT: Oh, one last pic - Trailblazer saws are made in Canada.  Didn't know that until I bought one.

Finished one up tonight and committed blasphemy, yep, painted the handle!

This is a Mann Quikcut, Connecticut pattern.  This head was given to me by a forum buddy on bladeforums.  The handle was 36", but I sat the head down as far as I could.  Got it down to 33.5".

Here's my new Plumb hatchet.  I got it last week on ebay, head only.  Of course I didn't take one shot of it before the refurb.  It was the typical rusty, crusty, old axe head.  The poll was a bit mushroomed, but that seems to go without saying.  I fixed the poll, sanded it clean, sharpened it, and put a new handle on it.
(http://i1042.photobucket.com/albums/b422/GrowlingBear1/PlumbCarve01.jpg)

Did I mention that it was a hewing hatchet?  Now I just need something to hew.
(http://i1042.photobucket.com/albums/b422/GrowlingBear1/PlumbCarve02.jpg)

Also made a mask for it.  Thick leather with a nice coating of Howard's butcher block oil with beeswax.  It took a nice color.

I refurbished one of my newly acquired Swedish surplus axes from Sportsman's Guide.  I received two HBs and one Sater Banko.  I decided to do the SB first, since I did an HB last time I got one.  The head weighs 2.57 lbs.

Here is as I received it:
(http://i1042.photobucket.com/albums/b422/GrowlingBear1/SGSwedeAxe02.jpg)

Stripped and sanded the head:

Put it on a boy's axe handle from House Handle:

I took the hawk with me today and threw a little bit while I was out enjoying the excellent weather.

As far as axe pron goes this is a bit on the low-budget amateur end but I thought I share it none the less  :P

My fledgling collection.

Hultafors. I want to do some work on the edge so it has more than the thin portion sharpened. (Was my first attempt with a round stone)

(http://i882.photobucket.com/albums/ac30/ecross88/PIC_0260.jpg)


Found this axe head in an old abandoned shop on my friend's parents' acreage. No markings on it, and it is quite heavy; the handle I used is a little short for the weight but it still cuts like a beast. That is fuzz from my carpet on the top of the head, and the half black portion is the line where the CLR came up to. (I only had a bit left and was trying to get the inside of the eye)

Found these two in the shop as well. Cleaned them up a bit, but I don't have handles for them yet.

(http://i882.photobucket.com/albums/ac30/ecross88/PIC_0252.jpg)

Hults Bruk I got at a flea market for $15. This was the fist time I hung an axe, and I have to sharpen it still.

Fiskars splitting axe. I prefer traditional axes, but this things splits very well and takes a beating.

Awhile back I posted some pics of a Council Tool hatchet, it was for my brother, he liked the hatchet and it performed very good but we both decided it could have a better look and I was bored so I stripped the paint off and tried the mustard patina and decided while I was at it to put on a better handle.  Nothing too fancy here but it's a slight improvement.

Here's my first double bit resto.  It's a Dunlap I got on ebay a while back.  It weighs 3 1/2 lbs.  The profiles looked pretty good so I just sanded the marks out a bit.  I still need to make a cover or two.  I'll have to look around for ideas.  Here's what it looked like when I started:
(http://i1042.photobucket.com/albums/b422/GrowlingBear1/Dunlap01.jpg)

It got a 30" handle that I stripped, sanded, and oiled.

Here's a True Temper hewing hatchet.  The grain on this handle was as perfect as I've ever seen.  Got this hatchet head at the bottom of my father-in-law's toolbox that was his dads.  It doesn't even look used, anyways so it was free to me, handle $3.  Not too bad..

  The first three show the Biber Classic from an Austrian maker,  then I put it next to a 2 1/4 pound True Temper Flint Edge for perspective.  I haven't used the Biber yet but I'm sure the balance will take some getting used to.  I've always been a bit leery of this pattern but I got a pretty good deal on the bay.

  Come to think of it Mueller does make a "scoring axe" with a similar pattern,  it's just much bigger at 6.5 lbs with a 10inch face.  It has a big price tag too at 600$.  I got this little Mueller off the bay for 60$.

Ray Mears Wilderness Axe and Council Tool Velvicut Hudson Bay Axe

I've had these for a few months, but they haven't done anything but sit in my basement. Once it cools down some, I'll be trying them out.

I've never seen one either, but an official 'scout' axe and an official 'Boy Scouts of America' axe are differently colored horses, too.  I am NOT putting your axe down, either.....just something to be aware of if bidding war situations occur on things like this :shrug:

The shape of the poll is what I find really eye catching on this one.  I have never seen that before.  Cool find :thumbsup:

I initially thought the same thing at first glance. Then I noticed the crest on there, sure looks a lot like the BSA patch on my old shirt. Or at least like PW's icon.

Cold Steel Trail Boss

I got this from Woodtreker, and it being a Cold steel product, I'm sure he modified it. There's no paint, the edge is nice and thinned out, and it's sharp as hell----very un-Cold Steel like.

This dirty girl ain't no fancy pants axe, but boys, she knows sure knows how to take care of business. >:D

I haven't been real impressed with Cold Steel's offerings as of late. It's nice to see them all "cleaned up" and sharpened properly. Looks like a useful tool. I think those hawks they sell would do so much better if they'd just leave that damn paint off. It's the first thing everyone here takes care of.

I'm new to this thread and I don't know squat about axes, but those sure are purdy Creek.

I see a hammer poll and a nail puller on two of them, so carpenter's axes I reckon.

Funny who ain't axe collectors. I'm shoveling my man cave into shape and ran into this jewel that belongs to Wilderbeast! He's has another down there that he will share soon. I know he has a cool hatchet. I snapped this cruiser with a Wetterlings SFA, His 3/4 axe is cooler than the Wetterlings. The cruiser is a fine example with a lot of life left. I think this chopper shares a position in the family tree somewhere...could be wrong. 3 3/4 pounds of wacking goodness.

Does Keen Kutter have anything to do with Winchester Repeating Arms Co.?  Sure looks like the style of lettering Winchester used :shrug:

Larry, I picked that saw up at a garage sale about 15 years ago and I've never used it.  I don't think anyone has.  It appears to be unsharpened.  I wonder if it's useable as is, because I'd love to try it out one day.

Yea the outfitter gets their saws professionally sharpened every season.  Regardless cutting up to 3' dia deadfalls got old real quick!  Even with a sharp saw.

It probably needs sharpened and does not look like it has much set in the teeth either. Could get both at rthe same time if you can find anyone who knows how

If got a nice TT Kelly Works KP like that and a Flint Edge. Neither are hafted though. I've had both for almost a year now... I should be ashamed of myself.

Yeah Snow & Nealy would have been my guess too.  Collins made some hudson bay designs as well, but their mm is usually pretty obvious unless it just looks that used and worn.

In going to say S&N. Some of there's weren't stamped. Collins axes were and I've never heard of a Norlund not being stamped.

I have been experiencing some serious cabin fever! I HATE winter! Despise it!

To break my melancholy, I decided that we needed some kindling! I broke out my newly acquired Wetterlings Long Hunting Axe that I got from fellow member ODE!

This is my first +\- 19" axe and I LOVE it! It seems like the perfect length for me!

Here is a Glamour Shot of it with the heavens shining down upon it!

My third TT Kelly Perfect (#1 is on loan to a friend). They are my go-to trailworking axe.

36" ash handle brought down to about 34"s.

(http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa413/cooperhill1/100_9365_zpsc3d05555.jpg)

A nice little (unusual) carving axe. Hung on a 19" ash handle. The half poll makes it look like it will be nice for close work.

I've got a nice TT KP that is in damn near pristine condition. I've had it for over a year now, but I'm yet to hang it.

What do you think...
32" straight octagon, 28" beautiful vintage handle, or 32" octagon curved ???

BTW...
I have all three ;)

thanks. I think 32" curved. I had one on a 28" and it felt too short. Don't have many on straight handles. Like the curved fawns foot for chopping/bucking. I used a spoke shave to trim the handle eye and shoulder. Makes real quick work of hanging. I followed Memphis' lead on bringing the entire shoulder down and not just gouging out a spot for the lugs. Makes for a nicer fit.

Post by: Bearhunter on February 28, 2013, 02:17:04 PM
Thanks Coop:)
I was leaning towards the 32" curved myself.
I do the same with the shoulders. I find it looks much better and is more practical to just bring the whole shoulder down.
It just makes sense to me :)

They do sell them yes, but it's just as easy to make one.  If yer like me, and not to particular about it - you can just chop a handle
worth of wood off a stout branch and use that.  It's gonna get tore up at some point any way right? 


I can tell you now with first hand experience - That froe will bust up some wood!
Thanks again UpTheCreek!

Here are a few projects that I want to get to as soon as things warm up a bit!

One if the hatchets is the very first hatchet that I bought as a 10-11 young lad at a fire companies flea market! The other hatchet was my grandfathers and it was in his camp that I bought. I sold the camp but grandpops little hatchet came with me! The double bit needs a good sharpening and some handle work! I might make some pants for them!

Picked this Walters up in CT for $10 last weekend. Rehung it on the same handle despite there being several metal wedges in it. I used techniques shown by creek and others on saving/re-using an axe handle. No work done on the head, just a bit of reprofiling/sharpening. Faint signs of original yellow paint.

I oiled these 2 this afternoon. I finished them last week. I really like the octagon handle profile leading into the head of the single (true temper on left) ....axes rock!

Well here's a lucky score.  My in-laws were buying some stuff at an antique store and they know my love for axes so they got the guy to throw in these two axes they had with the stuff they were buying.

SAAAWWEEETTTT!!

First up was a fairly worn True Temper Full size double.  It's still got some good life left though.  At the least it would be great for busting up stumps and roots, etc...

Handle unfortunately is just too far gone to be usable

(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8124/8641136476_6998f39f68_b.jpg)

Next up is a full size KeenKutter, it looks like someone restored it not too long ago.  They did a decent job.  The handle is still fine.  Just some sanding and a good oiling is all it needs. Length is 32 inches.

Here are a few projects that I want to get to as soon as things warm up a bit!

One if the hatchets is the very first hatchet that I bought as a 10-11 young lad at a fire companies flea market! The other hatchet was my grandfathers and it was in his camp that I bought. I sold the camp but grandpops little hatchet came with me! The double bit needs a good sharpening and some handle work! I might make some pants for them!

One of my first projects. I re vamped my trail hawk. The patina on it looks awesome IMO. Pics just don't Do it justice.
And that's a sanded handle with three coats of boiled linseed oil.
I'm gonna make a mask for it now, but it won't look as good as the one above. Man! I love that collar on it.
It putsine to shame, but I'm learning. This one looks tons better than factory, anyway.

This one belongs to a friend of mine , it was his grandfathers and had been rehandled by his father with a hand made handle about 50 years ago .
It's a Blenkhorn & Sons they made here in Nova Scotia from 1871 to 1915 .

Thanks .
He also has his fathers Blenkhorn db , it's alot more worn from the grindstone as it was his father's delimber and notch cutter , he cut timber during the winter and farmed in the summer , I'll put some pics up when I get them .
His father prefered to make handles out of yellow birch because he claimed it it gave him the balance between springyness and toughness but also made many from ash as well .

Funny you should mention yellow birch. My ex's father was from down the South Shore near Barrington and he told me that when they went into the woods to cut pulp in the winter they'd often rehandle with birch. I'd never heard of it before but am interested in trying it out sometime.

Not an axe but a woods tool all the same. picked up a vintage Maine peavey for $17 and a vintage handle for $12. Restored them and viola. Need a bigger bolt on the peavey but works great.

This is what about $80 will get you at the surplus store.

(http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac262/sfc1620/20130821_154301.jpg)

Hultafors army axe (SFA pattern) and a civvy defense Agdor of the same heft.

Two light weight belt axes, one S?ter Banko and one Wetterlings Ex Yxa. Both are .9kg heads on short hafts.

Last is an Agdor (Hultafors) heavy belt axe. I really only went for two belt axes but they let me back to the store room again. Now to hide them from the wife along with the other ones!

Btw. If anyone ever wondered about the axes with a hole in the blade, it's only for tying on the mask. No other mysterious thing about it. Finally had it confirmed today and felt like sharing!

They is called "Rabbits" when they came from the dockyard  LOL
I should have put something there for scale , the smaller one is no bigger than a pack of smokes , he'd put it in his pack when hunting , make a handle from a sapling when needed , it would skin , cut , slice and chop .
A "Rabbit" made for when he was snaring rabbits LOL

I bought the Condor from a member on another forum a while back. He had already done some work on the edge so it came to me sharp. I love it so far and used it quite often last year. It keeps a good edge and i like the size, too. I recent got the Scout Hatchet as well and it is a great little hatchet.

well that's pretty cool you've got stuff like that locally.  I get lucky sometimes but it feels like it's been awhile.  Then again Oklahoma was never a logging state loaded with goody axes from the good ol days.

I got this little Norlund Hatchet in yesterday. I was immediately impressed with it. It had a major problem though.

It was as blunt as an apple! I mean NO EDGE.

This afternoon, I decided to try and remedy that. I took the file to first. Holy smokes..........the steel was HARD. I really had to work at it. The file had a hard time biting in! I finally got a somewhat decent edge and bevel going, so I took it to the stones to try and clean it up. This little bugger is TOUGH! I don't think that i have ever had such a hard time sharpening something! I finally gave up because my arms felt like they were going to fall off! I took it to the strop to polish it up a bit. I still don't have it "sharp". It is an ok edge, but far from where it should be!

I gave it a quick sanding and a drink or two of BLO and this is where it stands now.

I know the usual lurkers here have probably seen my thread on this one already but it's too cool not to put here too :)

Plumb Cedar axe - 1.75lb, about 4" edge, OAL is just over 18 inches.

Finished hanging this one this afternoon.  1945 Sager...........so it doesn't have quite as many stories to tell as Creek's do.

(http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p632/imnukensc/IMG_1085_zps1176c2a3.jpg)

Some funky quench lines on this.  Maybe a mistake when made?

(http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p632/imnukensc/IMG_1084_zps894a55e9.jpg)

36 inch House Handle still needs another coat of stain and I need to dress up the edges, but they're in very good shape.

(http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p632/imnukensc/IMG_1086_zpsd884e4cf.jpg)

Sure didn't need the pin, but what the heck.  I'm pretty happy with this hang.

I finished my chores after work yesterday and my Bride was away today so I decided to do some antique store cruising!

At my first stop, I found a very nice Plumb Boy Scouts of America hatchet for a good price. I decided to pass on it, since I already have one that I fixed up. I left it there and figured that I would stop back on the way home and if it was still there, it needed to come home with me!

It made it home and here it is!

I almost bought this little belt axe. I have never seen anything like it. It is marked US.

What is very intriguing is the eye! Look at the crazy two eye setup! I am kicking myself for not snatching it! Maybe I should call them and see if they will hold it for me! Pretty cool!

Neat stuff, Mr. T.  That's a nice old Plumb BSA hatchet you snagged.  I've never seen an eye like that double one, either.  Closest I've seen to that is the Marbles type head with a triple type, but they were connected and not separate.

Creek,

I have researched it just a little bit. I don't know if this is what it really is, but start here on your search.

M1910 Belt Axe  or US Army Medic Belt Hatchet.

One of these showed up on another buchcraft type site. It was brought up that the head may be attached with dowels instead of being carved like that.

Neat little tool!

I'll do just that MrT! Thank you for all your efforts on this project. I carved the shoulder just a tad, wacked the haft a time or 2, noticed the 2 eye sockets kinda popped out, tapped them back down and it's a tight seat. We'll see. Thanks again.

The top left one is a Warren 4#/ Center one is a no name)at least I haven't found any marks yet)/ Right one is a Mann, Mann, Knot Kipper Approved 4#

The Bottom left has no markings but looks a lot like a Plumb that I've been seeing.  The Bottom center is a Keen Cutter 2.2 Cruiser and bottom left is a Plumb 2.2 cruiser.

I just got this sweet little True Temper boy's axe.  Looks like the original haft and very little wear on the head.

I like that! I love the old handles. They seem so much more 'elegant'... Unless it's just me.

My Wetterlings hatchet after I shaved the handle to suit me and a Swede hatchet that I made the haft for a couple of years ago , the first haft was a fail because it was too round and felt like the axe wanted to rollin your hand with every strike .
Made it from birch , still going strong :)

Creek, 

Did you ever figure this one out?  I think it's a Marbles, but I don't know what model.  Does yours have a number stamped at the bottom of the poll?  Here's a couple pics of a Marbles #4 Safety Hatchet made between 1911 and 1915.  Except for the guard built into the handle and the metal wedges in the head, they look very similar to me.

Nuke, mine doesn't have any numbers that I can see. No markings whatsoever. You may be on to something though. It sure looks alot like that. how wide is yours head edge to pole? Mine doesn't have metal pegs. Of course someone could have added those along the way. Appreciate your help.

Sorry if I misled.  I don't own a Marbles.  Wish I did!  Just happened to run across this thread on another forum and thought they looked very similar.

Is that what I think it is?  peaking out there - in the top right corner of the photo?   :thumbsup:




I have an old Marble's No 9 axe that has the double holes; but they are NOT separate holes, which is why I didn't think it was one.  The link to what SharpShooter wrote makes me think otherwise now...  and in my experience, he knows a whole lot about Marble's (old) products.


I think it's a pretty cool little axe either way.

Thanks on the kind words for the helve , it's a test so see how well it will stand up , I made it from a piece of birch that I split out with wedges and it is quite comfortable in the hand .
Funny thing is that after it dried out it didn't really fit the head that I made it for so I was a little bummed out after all the work .
A little later I found this Swede head , it fit it perfectly .

One man lance tooth I just picked up.  It'll be a birthday gift to my dad soon but I'll enjoy it for the time being.  I've never used a saw of this style, but it sure cuts like a dream.  With a bit of sharpening and polishing it'll be a fine quality tool.  Reminds me of the one Dick Proenekke used in Alone in the Wilderness.

Nice creek!  Tell me about a couple more of them.  Both on the top row right of the picture, the first one beside the picture with the dark brown handle, the other one is the third one over from the picture.  Those look really good!

Thanks creek!  I remember that Plumb you did just a little while back.  That's a nice one for sure.  What's the one to the right of the Wetterlings?  I'm just curious is all.  They look good and the handle shape on these look real good.

I hope you people are happy.  When I first caught the bushcrafting bug and decided I wanted to learn how to be a proper outdoorsman, I thought it was all big  knives for batoning and small knives for carving.  A few months lurking around here, and I've put a cheap Fiskers hatchet through my thumb, and I'm debating whether or not selling one of my kids will net me enough to buy the entire Gransfors Bruk lineup with a nice antique boys axe to boot.  Creek, you must have more $$ in axes than the GDP of most European countries.  Super jealous.

Some trail work, felled this dead Scarlet Oak that was leaning and too close to a regularly used marked path. Axe is a full-sized 3.5 pound Connecticut pattern, unmarked. It was my uncle's until I inherited it earlier this year and restored it. The cheeks are slightly convex (presumably an older model) as I found when taking measurements with the caliper. The edge is filed around 28 degrees, probably closer to 30, because most of the trees here are hardwoods.

My modest axe family...Big boy on the left, reserved for trail maintenance, Gr?nsfors Bruks Small Forest Axe, and a Cold Steel Frontier tomahawk I recently acquired. I also have a True Temper Kelly Works Flint Edge Michigan pattern which I need to hang.

Alrighty, pics as promised  :cheers:

Earlier in the month I purchased a carpenter's hatchet/half hatchet on ebay...it's a Stanley Handyman in very good condition, still having the original factory bevel, and cost me only $10. The head had some minor surface rust, so I decided to just use sandpaper and WD-40, which fortunately left much of the patina intact :).

(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeStanleyHMCH1_zpsc6ejyqad.jpg)

The handle is a leftover piece of hickory from a larger axe handle. I could have simply bought a hatchet handle from the hardware store, but there's no reason to spend around $10 on that handle when I can recycle some wood, and spend a few, gratifying hours crafting my own.

I've done a bit of research, and my findings indicate that the Handyman line (which also included planes, screwdrivers, as well as other carpentry tools) started in the early '50s and ended just before the '70s. Some have stated that the Handyman series were cheaper and of lesser quality than other Stanley products of the time, but I have found no evidence from the Stanley company confirming that. From what I have found, Stanley responded to the demand of DIY tools after WWII by introducing a line of products that were still of high quality, but also affordable. To my knowledge, all of the Handyman tools were made in the US.


(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeStanleyHMCH2_zpspowhuukr.jpg)

Finished handle is just over 15.5 inches. Here it is compared to my Gransfors.


(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeStanleyHMCH3_zpscqtooah7.jpg)

When I received the hatchet head, the eye contained some remnants of what I believe to be the original handle, plus a bonus step wedge, which I decided to not include in this handle. I used a scrap piece of hickory for the wooden wedge.


Re-working with a file, and then sharpening to a keen, wicked edge probably took a little over an hour.

(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeStanleyHMCH4_zpsfzsmuc6t.jpg)

The sheath is quite simple, just some brown leather with a welt, saddle-stitched, and designed to be a friction fit. Originally the leather was a much lighter brown, but a linseed oil and beeswax treatment enhanced its character with deep, rich tones :).

Now I have a dedicated crafting axe for other home projects...not bad for $10  :banana:

Agreed. On the whole, I don't think that Stanley tools today are quite up to the quality standards they once were. But at least they have lasted this far, and still continue to innovate. Their US made products, especially the Powerlock tape-measures, are top sellers. They've come a long way from a small factory in New Britain, Connecticut. And if I'm not mistaken, they now have a museum there :).

Looks good NEB. I always like to see what guys have on their work bench too.

I don't know for sure, Handyman hatchets and hammers might have had slightly different shape heads, but most of the savings was probably in less grind and polish, a lower quality, and or round handle v. Octagon, and more of a one size fits all in weight.

The Handyman line appears to be limited to tradesmen's tools, and Stanley's axe selection was rather limited. The Jobmaster series appears to have come at a later time.

Mine had a slightly uneven grind, but nothing that a file and some time can't fix ;).

Still has original factory grind, and the temper lines reach slightly over 2 inches behind cutting edge. Weighs 3.5 lbs exactly, length from edge-to-edge is 10.5 inches. Axe has beveled cheeks with ridges in the eye. Cost me only $20.80 with free shipping on ebay. Should make a mighty fine user  8)  :choptree: :chopwood:

I think you were more correct before, not tradesman but diy, suburban home mechanics- a cheap plane to fix a door, and stuff like that, as electric hand tools become entrenched in pro trades.

Now you have to find a tree big enough for that DB

Double-bit continued....


(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeDB3_zpswg72eb74.jpg)

This axe had a few chips in the both blades, including a rather nasty one that took some time to fully remove. But it helped that I upgraded to Bahco files, which seem to last longer and cut much faster than the newer Nicholsons (made in Mexico) I had been using in the past.


(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeDB4_zpspv2slqwr.jpg)

With both edges re-profiled, it was on to the sharpening stage...this didn't take very long because the factory bevels were in such good condition. I probably spent no more than 1 hour fine tuning both cutting edges.

For the sheath, I didn't have the option for a "full face" cover due to my leather supply running low and limited, so I improvised.

(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeDB5_zpsqikk09yl.jpg)

(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Ceardaiocht%20agus%20dulra/Tua/AxeDB6_zpsiy0eip5g.jpg)

All the leather used was originally white...I dyed it "saddle brown". I followed up with some LL Bean Boot Guard, which I use to condition all my leatherwork. Some folks like Obenaufs, which is fine, but I cannot justify it's ridiculously high price when it is functionally the same as what LL Bean offers. In any case, I am quite happy with the sheath...probably saved $25 by making my own.

All that's left now is to put on a fine handle. I went to my favourite small business hardware store in town, and they were completely out of double bit handles. But being great folks, they ordered one for me...it should arrive later in the week.

Took awhile to find a decent handle, but the owner of a local small business hardware store was kind enough to order one for me. The hickory is mostly heartwood, which I prefer. It came a little thick, so I spent 3 days leisurely shaping the helve with a four-in-hand and spokeshave to fit my hands.

The round steel wedge came from the good folks at Beaver Tooth Handle Co. in a set of 5...it is their "medium" size.

We finally have a new trail monitor over at my local woodland, and unlike his predecessor, this man actually cares about his job. A day or two ago, he was kind enough to leave me several 6-7 ft sections of a fallen White Oak (that had suffered severe oak borer damage), which came down recently from all the wind after the nor'easter. He clears most everything with a chainsaw, but he also knows that I'm fond of axes  >:D

So today I took my restored double-bit out with me, and found the cache of bucked White Oak logs  :banana:

I'm really liking all the axe pics, but I really have to ask....

Creek, is that a rabbit in the pic with the double bit by the sink?  It looks like a furry critter paw I see....

The only reason I ask is I was at a customer's house the other day and their rabbit followed me around like it was a dog.  Usually they ignore you or get a little timid.  Thought maybe yours thinks it's a cat. 

Or maybe I'm just a little crazy.............. ................... ................... ................... ..........AND seeing things...

Post by: OutdoorEnvy on February 21, 2017, 03:45:52 PM
My understanding is the non spiked two piece or collar only setups are Cant Hooks, some have a toe piece for the end of the handle.  The one piece units with the steel sleeve and a spike on the end are Peavey's.

That was a good read wolfy.  Thanks for the article!  I was on the lookout for either one.  First one I came across at a reasonable price was going to be mine.  I just want a big log roller so either should do the job for me.  No joke on the handles.  They are pricey but it will be added to my House Handle order I've had piling up.  Need to get one the way.

yeah I'm going to try that first and see how it does.  If I come across a toe I'll grab it.  If it seems to need one I'll probably look to make one somehow if the end of the handle seems to get tore up and stuff.  I think it'll work fine though.  I'll just be rolling big stuff to saw up.

I think you'll find that you need SOMETHING out there on the end.   Just the end of the wood handle will not only get chewed up, but will have zero purchase against the log.  My cant hook will even slip on deeply furrowed cottonwood bark occasionally. :-\

If I made one how far out from the handle would the protrusion part need to be?  seems like thinner would bite better but I don't know on the length.  I've never used one so it's hard to gauge it.

I think it's only about 1/2" - 3/4"......probably closer to 1/2" if I remember correctly.  I can measure it when I go back out to the farm, but I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow.  It's kind of a semi-sharp protruding chisel-like lip.

Figure I'm going to chop the brand new handle out of it. Will make it easier.  I'm going to craft masks for this one. That is my motivation. Then I can mask the hatchets. We'll see.

I had just a little time today so I pulled this one off the wall. It is one of my favorites and I consider it one of the most valuable of my meager collection. Made when manufacturers over seas were trying to be as good as those in the USA. Still has original haft and man is the steel hard as my head.

Ready to chop.

Lookin' good......I like that crooked knife, especially! :thumbsup:  Did you make the handle AND the blade, too? :shrug:

thanks for the comments Wolfy... The crooked knife was made by Nick Dillingham of black thunder studios. I have made crooked knives but being I've attended some of his classes I figured to get one he made.

   HB doesn't get the respect it deserves in the US.

   In my view, they are every bit as good as GB, and better than Wetterling. Just my opinion.

I'd dare say as fine an axe maker as there is in the world Punty. I like those two. I think they've been in business for 500 years.

thanks for the comments..That's a couple of nice heads, Dancan

The HB was made from a head I picked up at Smillies flea market in north carolina. The tomahawk came from (if memory serves) oscar cronks trapping supply out of maine, seems like a million years ago now.

I guess photobucket is fixed. The site looks different and works today!

Here is the big Norlund. 5 lb head on a 36 in haft. 6 1/2 lbs is one loverly package.

I don't put much of an edge on my splitting axes , just enough to get the job done .

It's just old school Finnish design wolfy. Axe with built in haft protection. These are hard to come by in the states and I paid accordingly. You can search their culture and glean the importance of these tools to their way of life. I'm going to restore this one and swing it. A nice addition.

Was out for my first bowhunt of the season.  The Council Tool Velvicut Hudson Bay has found it's way into the pack...I'm liking this the more I use it

That's a neat one dancan.  You don't see those much with the heal point like that for moving and lifting the wood.  Very cool!

I have to admit that it's the first one I've ever seen. :P   Looks like a great tool, though!  :chopwood:

Like a picaroon attached to a splitting maul.
Cool.
I live in the same place as DANCAN, but his persistence in checking out yardsales pays off.

I bought a Craig Barr spiked tomahawk in the white. I polished it, blued it and made a handle for it out of curly maple, with a moose antler tip and a curly koa butt. Decorated with domed brass tacks, it is a working useful tool. I used it to skin a bison that I shot in 2012.

I purchased a Viking style axe head from Adam Thiel in Hungary, I handled it with a nice piece of curly maple, and secured it with a thin wood wedge, the head is not drifted. I found a Medieval leather smith to make the sheath. It has a Damascus cutting edge, the rest of the head is hand forged, with a poll hammer head. Handy and functional.

I confess to sneaking in to view a bunch of your photos, Jeff. :-[ ........MAN, you've created some absolutely gorgeous stuff that I covet immensely!  Is that a sin? :shrug:
