    I have a Plumb Boy's Axe marked on reverse in script (but to faint to easily read and impossible to photograph) with what appears to be"Russ Pollard". It is stamped in the steel at the poll and under the applied finish, so I doubt that it was added after it was manufactured by an owner to identify ownership. All the letters were obviously stamped at the same time, although the stamping is deeper on the left and more shallow and faint on the right. I do believe it was stamped into the metal while it was hot. Nothing comes up when I google it. Maybe I have misread the letters?? Any ideas? Thanks, TA

    It would be interesting to know the story behind it.

    "Some etched hatchets appear to be examples that were used primarily as advertisements or were possibly promotional in nature while. Others suggest that they were commissioned by a company as a commemorative gift for an individual; perhaps someone who was retiring."

    Well, it is Photobucket after all.

    If Plumb was known to have made special order axes with somebody's name stamped on the reverse, I could believe that would explain why this one exists.
