Since my property burnt a few years ago, I have had to cut down 100s of trees and chopped them up for firewood. This caused me to buy several modern axes to help in making firewood and getting a little exercise in. This has progressed into an interest of antique axes, so I just bought a couple:
The one on the right is a Zenith Double Bit has been marked repeatedly with FS for United States Forest Service dating to 1910.
On the left is a Clean Cut hatchet Sold by Dunham, Carrigan & Hayden Company, who were the leading supplier of wholesale hardware and mining supplies out of San Francisco between 1888 to 1927.
I think they are cool and will get used... anyone else collect axes?
