36" one man is the first crosscut i aquired...4 years ago maybe.
The felling saw about 3 months after the 36".

The double i scored sleeping, it was a sleeper, last spring or summer and the William Penn just found me finally today!

Good things are worth being patient for...

I don't know if it is an optical illusion or if there is quite a of bit of set on that single man saw? William Penn looks to be in pretty good shape ... nice finds!

If there's one thing I don't suffer from it's a lack of words. But I'm just plumb out sufficient adjectives to describe how nice that Jersey is! It is either the nicest or tied with the nicest Supplee Biddle I've ever seen! What a gorgeous axe man! Congratulations on that brother. That must immediately jump to the top of the heap! The other items are nice too but frankly, in my opinion anyway, pale in comparison.

I have been trying to find some discussions or posts that mention the who possibles that provided axes and implements to Supplee.
I remember reading but still searching for, that Collins supplied but never read any one maker had exclusivity.

The bevel in the cheeks on it, I feel are Mann bevels but what does that mean really ;):cool:

Thanks again.

I have some new connies i should post up, just havent had a moment to hang anything for weeks.

I start to little worry about your costly addiction to Supplee Biddle products !! Should we call an Axorcist???

Thank you buddy!
Not just yet.

Boy Howdy!

How-Deeeee! Thank you man!

That Rockaway !!!!!! Man that is nice!

Bill

I greatly appreciate that! I like it alot too!
Of my WmPenn axes, this Rock definitely has the crispest of the crosshatch work on the WmPenn figure in the embossment.
Thank you

That double!!

Comes to me with a rich full history, purchased, used and owned by 3 generations of the same PA family...I Love It!!
