Hudson Bay pattern axe
« on: September 19, 2013, 08:32:36 AM »
I got to talking axes with an old timer at an antique store.  He said he had an axe old head he couldnt sell at his last garage sale.  I ended up buying three off him.  One seemed to be a pretty old Hudson Bay pattern axe.  Pretty heavily corroded.  I gave it a dip in vinigar to see if I could clear up the touch marks.  I didnt recognize the stamp, it looks like three 1s.  Look familiar to anyone?

Nice. Looks to have some good life left. Stick some wood in it and love the edge some. Probably make a fine companion.

Axes Rock!
