    I used to have one of these that I picked up at a yard sale, I loaned it to my uncle and never got it back. I never really thought much of it back then, but I had never seen another one till now. I got this from a lady that i helped clean out her shed this weekend. That confirms to me they were manufactured and sold, but there are absolutely no manufacturing marks on either of the ones I’ve seen. Just wondering if anyone had any info on who made these, and when they were sold? I’m going to have to work a handle for it, the hole is too small for a standard double bit axe handle.

    Call me dumb but I'm not sure I get the intent behind the design. Are the flip out pieces on both sides? What are they supposed to do?

    It’s a splitting axe, yes, the flippers are on both sides. When it enters the wood, they swivel out, pushing it apart. I’ve seen similar designs, but not exactly like this.
