This is becoming a very nice list. Great info...........
I think they should make a sticky thread out of this.....Keep it at the top ?
I've had a SAGER double bitted 3.5 pound axe for 20 or so years that was given to me by an old forester. You might want to add that name.
Thanks to JURISPRUDENCE I now know a lot more about Sager than I did an hour ago!! GREAT LINK!!!!
Pritzlaff Hardware of Milwaukee WI sold axes labeled Pritzlaff, Pritzlaff Special, and Everkeen P. H. Co.
I also have two M. Frankfurth Co. axes and two Rixford axes.
I just picked up a couple of nice old axes marked "Eclipse". Any ideas?
There was an Eclipse company that made the old fashioned reel lawnmowers. Maybe they made axes.
Evansville Tool Works in Evansville Indiana produced axes and hatchets for several years. I really haven't much information on this company, but have had several different styles over the years. I live pretty close to Evansville. I have heard they went out of business in the early 40's

do you know anything about my Austria made carpenters axes and Goose Wing Carpenters Axe -in the pic- the Goose Wing came from Austria and is quite old - it is right handed and 12 and a half inch blade - it is for truing up (making one or two sides flat instead of round) of a log so they fit better - i have a 2 that were shipped from the Ukraine. I would like to know more about its date of manufacture and company history if any?
what i found so far i think it is from the 1920s
It is stamped Gusstahl Seebach but hard to read
