    Some good looking axes there! Any way you'd be willing to sell the dark helve 3rd down from the top?

    Amazing! I don't know what all that stuff is and don't want to derail the thread that much. Who made the collared hatchet with the odd cheeks?

    My uncle came through again with a couple heads, this time both doubles.

    Ones a pretty beat 3-1/2 Rixford R55, knew right away before cleaning it what the xfor was :)
    Was hoping to reveal more stamp, but It looks like this one was a light strike :( oh well it's pretty beat so I think I might make some kind of funky narrow poll lugged single bit out of if.

    The other in slightly better condition is a no name, much more modern.

    I'll get back to you guys with some soapstone markings of what I could possibly do with that rixford.

    I'm kind of thinking about something like this

    Or maybe something a bit more 19th century looking like this

    It won't be as easy to get the second option out of it though.

    I could fix the damaged bit of course, but the eye is pretty messed up so I figured it might be a good Guinea pig candidate.
    I'm undecided right now.

    I'm not familiar with the device attached to the draw knife.

    I like the 2nd one better. Drop it down where you have more bit to work with.

    How bad is the eye, you are going to cut up a Rixford? Any pics of the eye?
