So I saw my first Collins Axe (new) for sale today in an old time hardware store I hadnt visited for years. Michigan style head, either wood or fiberglass handle. I stood there looking at the big yellow sticker that read "Collins Axe". I thought back to a time when a maybe someone that used an axe everyday would come in to a hardware store and be looking for an axe, and might see a similar product.
Then I saw it was of pretty s****y quality and made in mexico by some Truper company I think. I then went home and drank some beer.
So much for my saturday awesome find. Oh well. In the back of my mind I knew it all along, but sometimes you have to hold out hope.

Yeah, since 2004 Collins axe are made by a Mexican Company-Truper Herramientas: http://woodtrekker.blogspot.com/2010...e-company.html
The curent Collins axes tend to be of very low quality. Here is an example of the Collins Hunter's axe: http://woodtrekker.blogspot.com/2010...xe-review.html
It's a shame!
Well that just sucks! No wonder Bailey's don't carry them anymore.
