Sorry... wrong thread
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!
Thank you Quinton and i am glad it helped you ID yours. Beautiful axes i feel. The steel is great, had to use my black jacks on it. Love it!
Thanks again, pet those doggies for me they are beautiful the last pics i remember
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.
That Rixford Connie is beautiful miller72 bet it feels right at home with all them other lovely connies you have.
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
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
Oh My those beautiful bevels...on fire! That pole still looks so crisp. I have my guesses but would love to see more
Thank you man!
It certainly has found its place among the few in the house at the moment
JP Kelly with similar mark.
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?
Wow thats lovely,regular old saddle soap and conditioning oil have worked good for me.Have seen neetsfoot and mink oil leave white stuff after awhile.
I would recommend posting up here. There are many excellent leather workers here...@ithinkverydeeply here on the forum or possibly on IG, @quinton does really excellent work and others. I personally have 2 leather, one is from @ithinkverydeeply...OMG awesome!
Love the dbl man! Thank you
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.
Sweet axe! That last photo is the money shot.
Great stamp, too.
Love the stamp on that miner's axe!
Looks great @FLINT77
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.
