I purchased a 30" 'Our Best' 3# Axe from Craigslist tonight. Owner said it was purchased 5-6 years ago which would put date of sale as 2006-2007 and probably indicate production as 2005-2006. Based upon what you know of company history, would this have been a 100% American made axe in that timeframe?
As a side note, this is my first axe. The grain looks good. It's balanced. The bit is straight to the heft and has never been used. I paid $45. Pretty good deal I'd say. Now it's time to sharpen and get outside.
