I'm green with envy! I need to find some friends like yours, lol. If you stumble across any more of these beauties and looking to sell I'm interested. Now if only Council would come out with a Connecticut pattern in their Velvicut line...

I think I remember seeing a small distributer offering these for sale back in the 1980's. They were over $100 back then. That was too much for me. I doubt there are a lot of them around in the US. Nice axes.

Here's a teaser of the big one. He also gave me a "boy's axe" size. I think a "boy's axe" in the lands down under are a bit heavier than what we would consider a boy's axe here in N. America.

Hey M3mphis...That old girl sure looks a lot better than the beat-up old hag I sent you. I'm sure the previous owner used her for cutting rocks.
A nice restore indeed. Perfect shaped face for the 'Iron Bark' of Australia or the dangerous 'Tawa' of NZ. Excellent mate.

regards...Frank

Now that's gotta be a real dilemma to have NOS top quality axe heads in your possession and not have physically experienced what they were meant to do, and what makes them so good.

Right on! My apologies for presumptions of being a voyeur in the same vein as Ferrari collectors that never drive the cars and instead trailer them around.

Boy I bet Doc Jastad and Alan Boyko would relish a look at those deep woods pics! Good fodder for a second round of coffee around the hunting table!

Dude, Moose, that is some impressive stuff. I saw some of those pics on another thread, but still gets me. I would love nothing more than to have the time to dedicate to chopping in that league. That's what a proper cut looks like, people!

Nothing pretty here to see. Just tools from the days when bushmen broke-in the land.

These tools are well worn...but worn well.

regards...Frank.

Well used and pitted old Hytest found under shed on my farm. Used a few like this in the Qeensland forestry back in the day.
