Hello. I was wondering if anyone knows what axe brand or line or maker is considered the rarest? Like very undocumented or super rare. Thanks.
I seen one of those Germantown hunters hatchets this weekend (in your first link). Great looking head. It was hanging up in a store as decoration complete with feathers and other pho pho refinements to make it look like a tomahawk. I think he wanted a buck fifty for it. It's still there.There are many very rare axes... Just off the top of my head 3 of them come to mind:
Findlay's Dadz Hatchetaxe
Warnock & Co
I missed this comment before making my post. See the Bloods in my above post. You'll likely never see others like them!Ok so I am basiacly meaning if you could list some rare ones from about 1800 to today, like just a couple of very rare axe lines or brands. Not one offs.
Those interested in the monetary value or rarity of an axe are my least favorite, those interested in using axes and hatchets and old tools for working wood and who are interested in history are my most favorite. I can't think of any good reason to be interested in the rarity or monetary value of an old tool.
John King "President's Hunting Axes" are exceptionally rare. One of this sort was presented to Teddy Roosevelt as a gift, and the number known to exist is in the single digits.
