Be careful, vinegar can ruin an axe head. It can dissolve more steel than you want and make your head look like a moonscape.

Some good axe folks have been using a 10% solution of molasses and water to clean rust off. You have to soak for a longer time and I hear it can stink, but does a good job. I have not tried it yet. The steel guys from the Sheffield area do not like vinegar or electrolysis and they know steel.

I just bought a Belknap bluegrass axe today. It's in pretty good shape, any ideas on the value?

Hi all,
Besides trapping coyotes in Wisconsin I do a little metal detecting, found these axes and such on a private parcel that was a logging camp in the early 1920,s. Seem to be a lot of Kelly hand made, can't tell for sure on some cause of the pitting. Anyway have a look

I'm not sure, I would assume so. There is nothing else marked on it. I haven't looked it up yet. Maybe someone on here knows.

Just means some Gov agency owned it, USFS, USDA etc.

I've heard good things about some of the older craftsman stuff.

I found this dual grit sharpening stone by Lansky to be an excellent stone for hatchets and axes. I prefer using water instead of oil to keep it wet. They can be found for ~ $5-8. Fits comfortably in the hand and a back pocket.

I love this thread....

I just picked up an old GLF axe. NO rust. Handle may need to be redone though.

Been picking up some axes and hatchets this summer. Here are a few of the military ones.

The first is WWI, second is WWII made by American Fork & Hoe 1945, and last WWI. This is stamped 323 machine gun battalion, which was part of the 83rd Division AEF.



Fork % Hoe 1945



323 MG BN

Anyone use a Husqvarna axe? I am pondering their multipurpose axe. I would really like to find a MANN tool company single bit. I have a double bit and love it.
