Axe info

Nov 27, 2021
Hello all. I’m new to the forum, but a longtime collector, restorer and user of many names and style of bits.
That being said I’m stumped! I recently acquired a single bit stamper only “TF” no weight stamp either. It as red as I can still see the paint on it from years and use past. The only info found was a post on here from 2010 mentioning True Temper as the maker? yet not much info was given. So I’m reaching out does anyone know anything regarding this mark? Any help is appreciated. Thanks a million everyone there’s some great info here and a lot of time put into the post. Thank you to everyone for the reads. You guys are awesome

Bernie Weisgerber is known around here as OldAxeman. He hasn’t posted in a while so I inquired about him not too long ago. It was reported that he is well and keeping busy gardening and volunteer work. I hope he post again here soon.
Thank you for the info. And the read. To answer your question yes it has been posted a number of years ago from another forum member. I came across the post not long ago but fell short with info regarding true temper and the mysterious TF stamp. Still coming up short but I know the answer is out there.

My old neighbor gave me an old True Temper of some sort yesterday as well. I will re-handle it and clean it up a bit.

This axe addiction is going to get expensive. Looks like I'm gonna need to build some racks to hold them all.

Is there a way to identify axes with no makers marks?

I have this double bit axe, and just curious. I recently broke the handle and want to buy a new one; not sure which size to get.
