    Skogkniv, nice collection. I want to point to the handle you put in the DB. you can get much better handles then that. wood color and grain direction make a difference.

    You're just teasing us right ;-) Hope you figure it out, can't wait to see the stash.

    I just got a rusty old forged double-bit axehead, took the rust off it, convexed and polished the edges, then put a 36 inch hickory handle on it. Its one heck of a chopper. That was the fist time that I did anything with an axe, I am very happy with the results. Sorry, I have no picks.

    What is the little rose handled hatchet? Is that a factory or custom? Is that some kind of rosewood or a stain?

    Its a replica of a small Norse axe found in a dig in Norway. Surely factory made. Chops little stuff well though. Handle material I am not sure of.

    Ok so I have to get a special USB adapter to read my micro SD card because my pc is too old I guess. That being said, it is perhaps a blessing in disguise, I will be able to add in the most recent 2 added to the collection, which those of you in the axe game, will simply not believe.

    The paper labels :


    This is an old catalog ad from 1902 for 3 types of Hammond hatchets - and there they are.


    Single Bits and Double bits -


    The half hatchets:


    Scout style:


    Claw, hewing, and misc :


    Newest additions this summer so far:




    not sure what this is:



    And then the 2 news ones I just got - Unreal.



    Hope these all work, and I didnt overtake the thread. These aren't all of the ones I have, I want to see if this is going to work first. Hope it does. No one said I was a pc expert.
