    Their redi-axe is a little odd but I like many of their knives.

    Thanks! Yes, it's probably my favorite gift from them. I was quite surprised and excited.

    Here you go. I thought something was wrong too when I first opened it. The eye told the story though.

    I suspect they may all be drawing from the same pool of experience. Marbles, bark river, hess. They all overlap in design and materials.

    finished up that cherry handle. I know exactly jack about logging, I've never even seen that tv show about it. Not sure if i will jump off with both feet first into this saw, rakers, setting degrees, specialized saw peening hammer, and all. I did however lightly file the edges using a file and a really bright light behind me shining on the tooth surfaces-just shining up the surfaces and not changing and angles. I honestly know that I DO NOT know anything about this type of saw. I have a fairly decent or working understanding of carpenters saws, even have a saw vise, tooth setter and file holding jig for maintaining them. IMG_20180103_203117373.jpg

    From what I've read, there is some history between them as far as experience and men but I don't think they're overlapping anymore.

    Most of you probably know this saw, the Agawa Canyon Boreal 21.
    It is a killer good saw!
    Comes with the highest recommendation from me.
    I really can't find any drawbacks in it.

    1.25lb ridged eye TT on a 24" West Woods, which Adam generously and unexpectedly added to a trade deal, explaining that it had a weird grain pattern but he figured I'd like it.
    He was right.
    IMG_20180108_212045.jpg
    The poll needed some attention, but a little file work took care of it.

    We went through a wild-land firefighter course years ago at our VFD. We took to calling them a hoe-axe and the instructor would lose his mind every time. Which of course, made us more determined to continue calling it such. Smart assed kids we were.

    Im going to say that's a beveled Kentucky pattern. Its got lugs, a narrower bit and I can make out the bevel well enough to see its not completely worn out.

    It's almost surely a quality axe. The pointed lugs and bevel lead me to think its one of the many kelly or true temper names, if theres still a stamp, or ever was. Just a guess based on odds, they made a lot of 'em.
    Plumb did too but almost always had rounded lugs.

    Also, get a good look at the mushroomed area, before you grind or file anything off. A lot of stamps are right there.

    Follow @Muleman77's advice. It looks to me to have an inch of bit left. Might not be the prettiest chopper in the shed but it sure looks to have potential.

    I'm new to hanging axes, I suppose this is how it's done? Nothing seems to be happening.................

    Kelly Flint Edge 2 1/4# head, WW 28" boys handle with a bit of stain and 1 coat of BLO drying above the gas logs. Perhaps showing an axe and gas logs in the same pic is blasphemous, but it does make a good drying spot and really gets the BLO to soak in.

    I see why axes can be addicting! Fun stuff, not only the doing but the learning. Super resource here on BCUSA.
