Somewhere this spring, I picked a old axe....cost me a whopping $1....despite the price tag of $2......finally was able to find a handle for it... As I think it needed a new handle.... More cracks than a city sidewalk? After about an hour in the rehab shop....remove old handle, clean off the rusty-crud, remove burrs and such Fit the new handle, add the wedge...tighten things down...trim the excess wood.. And, toss the old handle out, onto the fire pit. Seems I now have a 3-1/2 pound Collins splitting axe....just needs a GOOD sharpening, when I get a bit of time. Not too bad of a deal?
Picked this "gem" today while on a rust hunt....yes I found rust, too... That is the blade that was with it. There is a thumbscrew to tighten things in place... It has a smooth, curve "bottom" Those "teeth" on the blade are not from a breakage.. They have been filed that way. The only markings seems to ba a "Patented DEC (#) 15......as in Dec of 1915. The "day" part is a bit scratched up. One other edge is straight (almost) and the other has a slight curve to it. Thumbscrew seems to match a Stanley made one. What is it?
