Just added a great new selection of restored vintage tools to stock!
Kelly Perfect Boy’s Axe. This is a vintage Kelly Perfect pattern axe with a 2 1/2lb head. This size axe is known as a “boy’s axe”. The profile of this axe is excellent for both chopping and splitting. Combined with the lighter weight, this makes this size axe a favorite for camping! The axe also has a new hickory 28″ handle with our dark linseed oil finish!
E-W Co Jersey Pattern Axe. This is a vintage 3 1/2lb Jersey pattern axe, marked “E-W Co”. This axe is a semi-wedge profile, suitable for both chopping and splitting and has a new hickory 28″ handle with our dark linseed oil finish!
42″ one man crosscut This is a one man crosscut saw with a 42″ long blade with a Champion tooth pattern. There is no medallion screw on this saw and any etch that might have been present is long gone so I can’t say which of the big saw makers made this one. The blade is clean, sharp, and set, the handle is one of the nicest ones I’ve done with our dark linseed oil finish and durable spar urethane clear coat. Hang this one on the wall as art or put it back to work!
Western style bucking crosscut saw. This is an Atkins #52 2 man Western style bucking crosscut saw, 6’6″ blade, lance teeth (lots of length, looks like it was never sharpened!), 95% readable etch, 2 restored loop type handles.
