Vern Burke, SwiftWater Edge Tool Works
Here are the latest additions to my restored vintage tools for sale!
Plumb Boy Scout Axe
This is THE great American hatchet, the vintage Plumb Boy Scout Axe. This hatchet has a freshly sharpened and super clean head with the Boy Scout logo stamp clearly legible. The handle is the original (and hard to find) Plumb curved handle with the original finish (plus a couple of tiny paint spatters) and has been freshly reseated and rewedged making this
hatchet 100% solid and safe to use. It really doesn’t get any more classic
Unmarked laminated hatchet
This is a great unmarked vintage hatchet. This hatchet has a softer steel head with a tool steel bit forge welded to it (done to make a harder and more consistent edge) and a gently curved handle that has been freshly rewedged and treated with an old school linseed oil finish. Not the fanciest hatchet around but definitely a good solid user tool that will put most anything made today to shame!
Case XX Barlow
This is a vintage Case XX 62009 1/2 Barlow pocket knife. This knife has perfect dark bone handles, 2 classic high carbon steel blades that have been freshly cleaned and sharpened, and good, strong, springs! I have a hard time finding vintage knives that havn’t been damaged or worn out, this one is definitely super!
