    It's a Puget Sound Falling axe. I was unaware that Brades made them. It would have been for export to the US.

    Have you looked for WILLIAM HUNT & SONS, THE BRADES, LTD., BRADES STEEL WORKS?

    Hi
    I’ve researched that company a little, found a few old catalogs. Can’t find a double bit of that style (Puget sound faller) made by brades. I’m on Vancouver island BC possibly imported??
    Thanks
    For the reply

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply, that style of head make sense I’m on Vancouver island BC. Fairly certain the axe is from here.
    Any idea of age on something like that??
