    Last count I had over 50 in various states of readiness. I like to hunt for old ones and restore them. I have a couple friends that also like old tools so we are always swapping and trading. I know a guy that's obsessed with axes and has a huge network of people he buys from. He told me at last count he was over 800!

    That guy with 800 axes sounds like someone I need to know when I'm looking for specific axes.

    The total number increased by 2 today at a small flea market. I picked up an unmarked hatchet and this Kelly Hammer Hatchet.

    Got two,my favorite is my Hultafors Hunter's ax which I keep quite sharp.My other is the Husqvarna hatchet.Only thiing about the Husqvarna it's difficult to get a real sharp edge on so I rarely use it.It came from Amazon with a so-so factory edge.I tried sharpening it on my WorkSharp knife sharpener and could still only get it not to my expectations.

    I have 14 axes, hatchets and mauls

    1. 3.5 Michigan pattern double bit bought new by my uncle in 1939-40

    2. Little cruiser dbl bit not marked but I am pretty sure it's a Kelly wood slasher. Eye ridges and red paint in the eye

    3. Council tool boys axe

    4. Modified harbor freight firemans hatchet

    5. Fiskars original 14 in hatchet

    6. Fiskars X-5 8 in hatchet

    7. Estwing dbl bit hatchet

    8. Vaughan 22 oz riggers hatchet

    9. & 10. Cheap harbor freight 1.25 lb fiberglass handle hatchets

    11. Cold steel Norse hawk on a 14 in handle

    12. S.O.G. fasthawk picked up on a gift card expecting a toy actually a decent tool as long as you realize its size limitations

    13. 12lb monster maul

    14. 6lb harbor freight splitting mail

    The harbor freight axes/mauls are better than many expect, you need to look at them and be your own quality control
