    here's a pict of my axes and hatchets
    .

    the first is a tommyhawk i got fom oscar cronk many years ago. the next is a hatchet i used on the trapline. the next i'm not sure where or what it is. the next is a plumb. the last is a little broadhatchet.



    the axes from the left is my homemade hudson bay, then the next is a keen cutter with a piece of spring steel for a blade and the side is welded up with nickel rod, somebody had used it for a wedge and mashed it out of shape. the next i picked up at a jonesborough fleamarket, its marked kelly flint edge, it's my favorite axe. then there is the estwing, then my great great grand pappys broadaxe.


    i havent really used these much for awhile except for the kelly, ya know that gainful employment thing takes up a lot of my time, dang it.

    i have 3 kelly's all different shapes, i don't know the shapes by heart but when i need a confirmation on a shape i look no further than in our download section...there is a lot of axe material, and shapes have complex and difficult sometimes to remember names, have a kelly VULCAN hand made i dont give that for all the G&B shape collection, pic of it somewhere in my crook knife thread, got this dude on etched in my kelly http://www.yesteryearstools.com/Yest...Full%20JPG.jpg

    Gaga, that's a lovely, lovely beast!........The short handle/heavy head configuration is neat. Used to split firewood with an 8lb head on a short handle within easy reach.

    Wow Gaga, that German ax is a beauty! Here's a picture of my choppers and saws. The folding saw is a Stanley, then there's the military version of the pocket chain saw, the ax on the left is made from a sheet of 5195 high carbon steel and was made many, many years ago by my grandfather who worked in Pittsburgh at the steel mills. They made this steel for file companies. The old beat up Plumb sheath fits it like a glove. On the right is my trusty Norlund.
