    Are you referring to the one I posted? I consider that very good condition, it isn't beat up and has no pitting.

    I have to admit that you have lost me. I wasn't debating. Maybe I'm losing something in translation.

    Thanks man. They're definitely out there, the Marsh & Sons reversible came from either Oregon or Washington and that seems to be more of a West coast pattern. Not common from those makers, at least not on the east coast, that one and the E&S are the only Maines I've seen in that pattern.

    But these are mostly all of the nicest ones I've gotten since last posting on here, at least that I still have left. Shifted my focus from quantity to quality and been selling off duplicates over the past few months. Just don't have the space for that many and the money is good too, that way I can keep bringing in new stuff but not just anything that's a Maine anymore. It's tough to let some go but it's hard to use and appreciate every single one when you have so many.

    we've seen the allagash before but i'v never heard the story.

    to be fair, bestmade is still a quality tool, it's just heavily hipsterized

    I know, but he said "It's a quality tool, not some Hipster axe" out of the context of maine axes IMO, i hate to chase this and bring this thread of topic, so let's agree to disagree on this topic if you do not see my point
