    Found this in the dirt the other day. Someone said Collins Legitimus. I’ll have to get a better pic later. Got a 36” handle for it today.

    I have this pic only because we had a work function at one of those axe throwing joints. I work in tech sales, so it wasn’t surprising that I was able to out throw all but one in the little tournament we had. It so happened, our business finance gal, who happens to be a pool shark, couldn’t miss the bulls eye and beat everyone. Needles to say, there were a few conversations about axes and I mentioned I have a few. They asked how many, and I said I don’t know, maybe 10. They all laughed and thought I was full of it. A few days later I felt compelled to go into the garage and take a pic of my collection. Out of fear of being labeled a lunatic I decided to keep the pic to myself.
    I have a mix of mostly vintage axes, ranging from a pre 1930 Kelly perfect jersey, a Kelly perfect double bit, a Collins legitimus cruiser, a FSS Pulaski, and some plumb double bits. The Kelly perfect jersey is the one with the handle showing heart wood at the bottom. I bought that handle for 50 cents at a yard sale and never planned to swing it.
    I have some new husqvarnas (hultafors), a council velvicut felling axe, a council FSS boys axe, the token fiskars x27, and those useless gerber hatchets.
    My favorite is a Kelly flint edge boys axe or the shiny double bit plumb hung on an octagonal handle, both hafts are from House Handle. With the exception of the Kelly perfects, they all see use.
    I have more axes and hafts, I just haven’t gotten around to hanging them.

    That looks sweet! I've a pulski head that I want to put a walnut colored hickory handle on. Head is mill color too. I heated it up on top of the wood stove and rubbed a couple coats of linseed oil in.

    So I've got some pics of the axe head that I had a blacksmith make. Waiting for him to finish the handle. When I receive it I will post some more. She weighs 6lb 14oz. 20210428_152045.jpg 20210428_152012.jpg

    Very nice. Nicely made too!
    At over 6lbs, that makes an excellent splitting axe. I'm still splitting wood mostly by hand. Love using an axe over a maul.
    The design is nice. It has the Jersey kinda style to it and the head is broad making the wood easier to blow apart.
    I'd be interested in a head like this if your smith would like to make another.
