    I'm still working on pics and a host since photo bucket is gone for me. Latest is I updated my windows which screwed up my camera down loads into the computer somehow. Was on 3 hours with MS support to fix it.

    Anyone else here running Linux? I left Windows headaches behind 12 years ago.

    Oh, and it's more secure, faster, and it's free.

    Linux for me as a primary. Mac OS as a secondary and wife has Windows. All of them have something to offer (with Linux having the most and Windows the least). Just tools (like axes) and its no fun limiting yourself to just one. Linux is definitely the goto though.

    Interesting design philosophies about 'purpose of use' for the same pattern by the same company, over an extended period of time. The new one is obviously geared more towards visual appearance, limbing and ease of sharpening than the vintage model which has a more generous eye and less blade leverage due to shorter length. Perhaps Wetterlings emulated the earlier version when it began making and marketing their version of an H.B.
    You don't have to guess which one I'd prefer.

    Hello all, is this a no name Maine pattern? Or just a no name axe? It is a 2.25 boys size axe.

    In the second picture I thought there might be a touch mark but I doubt it. Thanks for the input!!

    That isn't a Maine axe, just a newer low cost drop forged head. Possibly imported.

    This axe I found yesterday turned out to be a really nice E&S. The reverse side is stamped B&M, as in railroad maybe? The head is 3.5lb and the handle is a hair under 29". The handle is sweet.
