    One more pic of the Champion. Starting to get attached to this... the slim 22" handle seems to give it perfect balance.
    Glad I burned my pal's initials on the bottom of the handle or I'd be sorely tested!

    I did a half hatchet on a 24 inch handle. They do indeed feel lively. The lightness always surprises me.

    I've decided to pull the Plumb Victory off the 18" riggers handle and try it on a longer haft.
    I never use a half hatchet, but maybe I'd find a use for it if it was longer.
    Yes, it's an excuse to play with axes, but I'm preaching to the choir here so why not?

    image.jpg 2.25lb GBA. Almost ready for a handle. I'm thinking of a 24" handle. Possibly going to try and make it from scratch.

    Do the work, make the mess, get the results. Plumb boy's head hung on a Tennessee hickory house axe handle. I think this will be my new woodcutters belt rig axe. Unknown boy's head with bevels hung on homemade handle. This thing was so pitted and beat up, i cut just over a half inch off the top and bottom and ground quite a bit off the faces. From 2.25lb to 1.5lb. Looks a little rustic to me almost, needs to get a patina again. Falls city Kelly axe, just shy of 4lb on a 28" council tool handle. Things a beast. I have a plumb thats about the same length and weight, this might knock it out of my saw box for a bit. Hanldles still need oiled and then sheaths to make.

    This thread has languished recently; I think we've all been posting pics in the Edged Tools forum instead.

    My newly acquired True Temper world's finest hatchet. You can tell it has a little mileage on it but I think it's got a lot of life left. Bonus from the skinniness of the handle I would guess it's probably original looks like someone re-wedged it in recent history.

    Hi, I just joined this group but I already recognize several names!

    Thought I’d share this interesting Black Raven with you guys here. It has H.S. Newins name embossed on the back and after some digging I was able to discover that H.S. Newins was one of the pioneers of forestry in the US!

    Born in 1887 he was a professor at several universities starting at Oregon in 1919 and died in 1963.

    I don’t know the story behind the professors bad ass axe but I’m sure it has one. Maybe a tenure or retirement gift, an award of some kind, customized by someone at a school for him... your guess is as good as mine.

    It’s bad ass though! Short slender haft with a 2.2 weight stamp and some neat history:

    I recently restored a couple little axes that I tried out smoking the handles to add patina for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with the results!

    I liked the outcome of the smoked handle. It turned out quite well. What type of wood did you use? Apple, Hickory, Oak? I wonder if the species of wood would determine the outcome of the finished smoke colour.
    I was tidying up my barn today and had a nice display for some axe porn.

    Just dug these out of where they've been hiding. :)

    Two Snow and Nealley Hudson Bay style Marking Axes. These are both (technically) the same model.

    The one on the right with the straight bit and shorter poll (with black taped handle) is from the early 80s and one with the rounder bit, longer poll and the badly fitted Gransfors Bruks handle is from the late 90s(?)...(but I think before they began sourcing steel from China?)
    That one has no forge stamps on it at all, but the earlier one has the "1 3/4#" on the poll.

    What they call the Hudson Bay Ax now (it used to be called a 'Cruising' ax or 'Marking' ax.)
    The black taped handle is perfect, (I don't remember why I taped it up, but I bought a replacement handle from S&N a week or so ago to replace it and don't think I will until I need to...the original has a much better rounded knob at the bottom. The new ones have a much more flat profile.

    I need to clean them up and put them back into service I think. I've always loved this style/size ax and am very happy that the family which owns the S&N name now are making them right here in my home State to the original quality again with 100% American sourced steel and hickory.
