    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.
