Me too. Shipping makes them pricey. There's a nice Kelly on the 'bay that I am drooling over right now.

Got a Hytest Forester today 4 pounds on a 36 inch handle.From the Salvation Army shop here in Wanganui.$15 NZ probably about 9 US$ or 13 Aus$.
Edge is battered a bit but nothing serious.

Now if I can work out how to post some photos.Finding axes seems to be the easy part!!

Copy the imgur link. Then use the photo tool(little picture icon) here to embed that link into your post.

Went to the St Ives Medieval Faire dressed as a Viking and bought this axe as it drew my attention, mostly to suit my costume for the event. But came home and noticed a faint brand in the steel and gave it a quick scrub on the brass wheel to make it out a bit easier.
From what I could see, it seems like it says Hytest Forged Tools but haven't seen this same marking on the other axes.
Would it help to identify it's age, or origin?

I use imgur with good results. You can just Google how to use it. It's easier than one of us trying to write it down! Good luck man hope to see your axes later!
