They don't make those knob end handles any more. I made one a couple years ago for a Walters restoration.
Thanks, Maine20. Could be the old can is dripping too much because the whole is rusted open. Possible?
That's amazing! I've never seen one so nice. I have the same unit minus the watering can. Any chance you can post close-up images of that?

Love the old polisher.
I'd call it a Connie. Great axe!
I have a Stubai and I find myself reaching for it more often than my American pattern broad hatchets. No problem choking up plenty close.
I agree that it was likely drop-forged and that they missed drifting the top of the eye.
