    It's been my experience that while Sagers resist air-contact rusting extremely well they also tend to pit deeply at ground contact points. Several examples I've seen have exhibited this localized deep pittiing.

    My brother came home with a 4lb (I assume Warren Old Faithful) W46 Puget Sound double bit that had a colorful history. It had the eye flattened and two big flats from where someone beat it off of a handle. Yet, it had felling bit and limbing bit so someone knew what they were doing at some point. That inspired me to fix the eye, grind off the mushrooming, grind the edges back to some semblance of sharpness before honing them, and hang it on a House Handle double bit haft my hardware store had. That is the first House haft I've seen so I'm curious about it. Getting back to the point, here are some intermediate and finished pics of it. Ignore the grinder marks, the patina will return eventually.

    This Stiletto Axe Head with Warren markings just popped up on Ebay and confused me as I was under the impression Stiletto's were TT axes, not Warren. If this is indeed an anomaly, I may just have to get it to preserve it for posterity :D.

    A Sager Chemical "Special Camp Axe" marked 1948. Bought from a really old guy I talked to who was an aircraft mechanic in WWII on the Islands off Alaska. He said they had B-25 bombers with 75mm guns and they would go out and sink Japanese shipping.

    So you guys saw this little Old Faithful that I got for my friend. It was being listed as a Rockaway pattern.

    Obviously mine has the pointy lugs and an almost Jerseyesque line from the lug to the heel.
    Then when perusing my favorite coffee table book last night I noticed this pattern variant.
    Could it be that this Warren is a Rockaway Jersey Pattern?

    It's compelling due to its overall roundness everywhere else. But it looks to me like a straight line(Jersey). As you know the bottom curve on a rockaway starts right at the terminus of the forward part of the lug immediately starts curving. Yours looks pretty straight to me.
    It is always fun to learn a new pattern though! I either hadn't seen, hadn't noticed or already forgot there was such a pattern as rockaway Jersey! It's a beauty and your friend is gonna love it!

    I agree with YJ.

    I find it amusing how the paint line follows the worn toe. ;)
