Just finished reading this, interesting article. He seemed to use boys axe and camp axe interchangeably. I noticed the Adirondack axe as well, I'm guessing he was from the North East.
Thanks for posting this view into the past. Interesting practice of rounding the bottom edge of the eye to keep it from digging into the handle (when prying chips, for example).
For some reason the article won't show up my tablet. I'll try the desktop later.
