It prevents the axe from sticking so easily.
More maine axes:
Emerson & Stevens Co. Maine double bit axe.
Maine axes: I blame G-pig for this latest addiction.
I reach for my Maine and north east axes more than anything else (kelly, collins, plumb etc).
That is the definition of beauty right there. Textbook. :thumbup:
On a related note I love my Emerson & Stevens bush scythe blade.
Super fine family you've got there, Coop. You Maine Mafia guys are making me sick with all those vintage NE axes you keep digging up. :greenwithenvy:
great new signature line. Let me make a patch.
Maine is teh bestzorz
I have atleast 5 or 6 new Maine axes that you fellas will be seeing in the coming weeks. some real lookers.
Got all my Maine single bits together for a family picture.
Front (L to R) Emerson & Stevens, Spiller, Rixford (wedge pattern maybe not technically Maine), Emerson & Stevens, Unknown marked Oakland Maine, Spiller
Middle (L to R) E&S, Unknown 3 1/4, Snow & Nealley 3 1/4
Back (L to R) unknown, unknown 3 1/4, Katco 2 1/4, Marsh & Sons 3 1/4
Some nice ones there but I really like that Katco 2 1/4. It has that simple efficient look that I associate with Maine axes.
You have all the fun with those huge NH flea markets Coop. If I have time tomorrow, I'll post my Maine axes. I FINALLY found an Oakland boys axe, Emerson and Stevens 2 1/2lb, about two weeks ago. Need to check my handle order.
My favorite Maine axe.
No such thing as too many Maine-made edged tools. Keep 'em coming!
That p-v is sweet. Love the handle. I have two similar looking Maine handles.
psyched to have been able to save this old maine handle. wrestled with one of these capped wedges in order to free the handle from the head without sacrificing the handle.
While visiting several Antique Shops in Maine, I saw a few "what the heck kind of Axe is this ?" It had these......"thingy's" on the Axe Head that were on hinges ? Please explain what the heck kind of Axe I saw.
Sounds like one of those splitter axes. Neat concept but never personally used one so I can't speak to its effectiveness. The idea was that as it drove into the round, the hinges would counter-act the force and throw the wood apart. Did it look something like this? Personally, if I needed a dedicated wood splitting tool, I'd prefer a maul and some wedges - if it's anything less heavy, I'd opt for a standard axe with the last-second tilt technique and have a more functional, less gimicky tool.
Yep! That be the one. Thanks for the pix and information.
Chopper One splitting axe. Goofy gimmick. I passed at $10 on the last one I saw.
