    Thanks!
    My mystery Connie has been solved.. my head had remnants of red paint, a 3 1/2 weight stamp exactly like the one on your axe, same shape, but no name stamp.

    Nice work, Miller!

    She is magnificent! Now I know Connie is not your favorite. But give her time. Stunning axe man! Great job!

    I'm not aware of Rixford axes not ever having the name stamp. They always have an RXX date stamp and then the Rixford stamp

    Here is my rixford connecticut. Interesting that my R41 connecticut has the 3 1/2 weight stamp, but my R51 DB has a 3^2 stamp.

    I'd say you're right. On closer inspection the weight stamp on my head is different.

    I think that like Rixford (VT) the other new england/maine axe manufacturers also used the fractional weight stamps instead of the superscript system.

    Thank you for the kind words. I dont know...i hope the Connecticut pattern grows on me ;):D

    I like the stamp still there hanging on strong! Great connie and I see so few Rixford...less than most others. Excellent axe you have there and would love to see the double :cool:

    Oh My those beautiful bevels...on fire! That pole still looks so crisp. I have my guesses but would love to see more;)

    also, it came with this really cool old axe cover. its really stiff and I'm afraid of trying to bend it too much. seems like it covered in some kind of fat or wax or something. I don't know how to recondition it. any ideas?

    Sharpened this head up a few days ago and hung it on a link 'miner's axe' handle I recently got. I like it a good bit. 4lb (ish) head and weighs exactly 5lbs as hung. Just shy of 27" total length. Should be a good fallers axe.

    Gave this FE rafter some love today. Not much abuse, but lots of weather, has given it some pretty good character.

    Tennesee Hickory needed thinned some, as usual. Angle grinder with a 36 grit flap does it fast. Couple minutes of hand sanding with 100 grit after that and its good enough for me.
