    New batch of heads. The one on the left has a boys size eye. Need to get weights on them.

    That's an excellent haul! Looks like a turpentine axe on the top. Did you find that down south?

    I picked up this little gem at a get together yesterday. The handle was really dirty so I scrubbed it with a stiff bristle brush.
    Its been oiled since and it looks beautiful (this is before the oil).

    Anyone ever been to the Steamboat Arabia museum in Kansas city? I love to visit there and see the growing display of axes, knives, hatchets, and wood working tools.

    This ship sunk in 1856. Headed upriver with 200 tons of supplies for the western frontier hardware stores.

    A vast collection of pocket knives, axes of every description, and knives for trade and skinning / butchering.

    I learn something new every time. 20170127_115542-1.jpg

    There are many styles of axes and hatchets. Most were manufactured in New England. And most have makers marks. As do the knives. Have any of you been here?

    As far as I know. The wood did shrink some as they were preserving it. The wooden rolling pins are original

    Way earlier: 600 A.D. Merovingian axes are the earliest examples I know of, but I wouldn't be surprized if there are earlier examples.
