    Hi there. I do not think it does. Heavily rusted over, the Legitimus Collins stamp is very faint, so i can not say 100%, however i don't think it will when i clean it up a bit.

    I am the same way!!
    I am so smitten with this axe, as it is!
    I will remove the head, light clean...LIGHT CLEAN, dress the bit, address the handle and rehang, possibly on its stick here or a sweet french curve about 28/29"

    I am very thankful to @Yankee Josh and @ithinkverydeeply for the heads up, the jonny on the spot details i needed and then the push. Thanks guys! Right time, right place, and the right fellas.

    the second I saw that bit to body transition, i didnt even need to read the stamp
    Spillers are just something else entirely

    Thanks, Maine20. Could be the old can is dripping too much because the whole is rusted open. Possible?

    Picked this up the other day at an estate sale, it was in the bottom of a toolbox. Pretty happy when I looked in the toolbox and discovered it.

    Cleaned up, sharpened and rehung on the original handle. I also reused the two wedges that were in it.

    Got these at the same sale, $2 each. Not an expert on draw knifes. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    It looks like 2 of the draw knife stamps are DR BARTON?

    Yes, 2 of them are DR Barton. I'm just curious as to what names in draw knives are quality ones or ones that are sought after. All of them are solid, no loose handles.

    Finally made it to an annual Mennonite auction with vendors selling old tools. Was hunting for one of these, and the seller said he likes buying from Kansas due to low amount of rust. This True Temper Kelly Perfect (likely a 3.5 pound head) has almost no rust or old pitting, a good unharmed poll, and old slim handle with over strike damage, but tight with a little further adjusting needed. Handle feels great. The bit is going to need some serious filing, but should work out those sloppy grinds. This will be a good user, and fill a hole in my axe bunch. Edited to add inserted pics, etc.
