Good for you folks. Hell of a tool the axe.
I think I'm at 16 or 17 now.
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.
Sorry to tell you this but he told me he has never sold an axe from his stash!
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.
