This isn't much but it was my Grampa Double Bit axe he broke the handle when my Uncle; Grampa; Dad and I were clearing some land in Grante Falls Washington in the late 60's. I found it a few years back and put a handle in it

It's a Craftsman head Coast to Coast handle

It ain't much but it's was my Grampa's axe

I like a good axe, have collected a handful of them.
Yard sales estate sales and in disrepair.
I clean them up paint the head and refinish the handle.
Spent some time trying to get the perfect profile on the edge.
Swedish but not high end, I forget the name off hand.
I do use them, especially for kindling.
Beats the chi com crap that out there now.
