I imagine some look pretty “similar” at first glance but many of the models are definitely distinguishable from one another. These pictures come from various sites that I have been reading while looking up the Finnish axe materials. Some of the models don’t have numbers on them so I went with what the owners posted as specific model – they would know more than me with identification having firsthand experience with them.
I’ve included examples paired with a scanned catalog as best I could. Only one of these axe is mine and I will remove any pictures that the owners happen upon at their request. This is just out of hobby/interest and just for “Axe readin’” entertainment here in the forum.
Luettelo Billnas Takeista catalog 1928
Model 12/2 and another
*Mariefors Bruk catalog page
Model 30? (The guy who posted this labeled it as from 1928 – Revel(sp?) . It matches model 30 from a Mariefors-Kellokoski catalog scan but it is obviously marked Billnäs.
After Fiskars took over the ironworks it appears they continued with the old methods for a spell then the shapes changed with the introduction of mass production.
