First Post. I am Primarily a carpenter and use a lot of hand tools. I enjoy making the handles for my hammers, chisels, carving and hewing hatchets and such. With all of the nice green wood coming down around the city I thought I'd pick up a couple of proper axes and try my hand at some long handles. Tons of Norway Maple and elm. Also quite a bit of black locust and walnut. I landed on this site and am getting some good info on the making of axe handles. I'd be interested in knowing what PNW'ers are using for axe handles since this isn't a big hickory State. But this post is about buying axes. I decided to search for a couple of axes to fit some handles to. Opened the craigslist App and two days and $150 later I had "accidentally" bought a load of axes. Seriously, I wanted a couple but it's hard for me to turn my back on vintage tools. It's a sickness that has no cure as many of you know. Here Goes....with the stamps I can read below each. TrueTemper Sager TrueTemper Flint Edge Kelly Norlund Master Mechanic Plumb 4 Sager Chemical 1922 Collins Has an "M" and possibly a light 3 1/2 stamped on it. Wards Master Quality Plumb The rest have no marks that have revealed themselves so far. I like the first one a lot and the rest will eventually be good carving tools for the shop. My favorites shaped of the bunch are the first Sager and with TrueTempers. I also like the Master Mechanic quite a bit. I actually like them all quite a bit. Any thoughts on the Sager Chemical? I don't like the grind on one side. It seems to be "bottom heavy". Could/should this be reprofiled? So. Whatdaya think? Too much?
