I’ve been messing with axes for the past year.
Here is a pre 1956 Plumb hatchet. I was able to save the original handle.

True Temper Tommy Axe on a 19” California framing hammer handle.

And finally the elusive Kelley Perfect, Jersey pattern with phantom scallops.

Maybe I should have posted this in the DIY section :bigsmile:

digging the monogrammed branding on the wood!

I found an old rusty axe head at my brother's property, planning on restoring it or maybe doing something custom....

Speaking of axes, stop in sometime and check out the stuff http://www.vulcanknife.com/ has in Tacoma. They refurbish quite a few axes and while I don't really know anything about them, they are sure nice to look at!

TCB, twolane: love the work. Quick question: why would you want to restore an axe? I was under the impression that modern steel is harder/better than old steel. And if it is historical, then restoring it reduces its value.I could understand restoriation if you're participating in historical re-enactments or if it is great grandpa's favorite axe.

actually modern tool and gun steel has been around since WWI

some of the newer steel tools are actually made with inferior recycled steel

If you ask an expert, they will tell you (as if you haven't heard it before) "they don't make 'em like they used to"

It's not that you can't get good alloys now. There are actually better alloys thanks to rockets/space. Just gonna cost you, so builders (using this as a WIDE term) will choose price and availability.

This is true, especially in knife steels. Powder metallurgy has allowed a higher alloy content than possible with cast alloys. That higher alloy content translated into better hardness, toughness and corrosion resistance.
