    Got these in just before work yesterday afternoon and did this late last night when I got home.

    The top obviously is the stock Vaughan super sportsman
    And the bottom is the one I reshaped and rehung , it just needs some BLO.

    Thank you its a mean one at that :cool::thumbsup:
    It feels great and its got weight.
    I will look deeper into the patterns. The pole is squared, also misshapen from heavy persuasion :rolleyes:
    Probably used for splitting previously.
    Thanks again :thumbsup:

    Thanks @Agent_H
    I am still looking for a welland vale example of axe patterns made, hoping to figure that out along with B.H.U.

    I agree with @junkenstien...this and the 3lb plumb national are my newest favs :D:thumbsup:

    What i did find and like, and feel it may resemble closely is the Walters Black Diamond regular pattern.

    Shown here and thank you @SteveTall

    I am still open to it being a connie :D;):rolleyes:

    Those little cross wedges can be hard to get out! Did that one give you a hard time?
    I've recently acquired two boy scout hatches. One older one with a small logo and clipped fawns foot and a slightly newer one with the rounded swell and the large fleur de lis. I was going to try to hang the older one today so I find it coincidental that you posted yours!
    Great looking hatchet and hang!

    Hung this yesterday but couldn’t get pics to upload. 5 lb atha sledge on a 21” handle. I made the wedge out of red oak split from a piece of firewood using my hewing hatchet draw knife and wood chisels.

    Very nice! And a double stamp as well. I don't recall seeing a double stamped Atha before. What are you gonna hit with it? Whatever image hosting site you were trying to use would be a great place to start!

    Haha it will probably just be a general all around user I like the handle that length to choke up for one hand or have room for 2 hands. May use it for pounding some steel wedges for firewood as well. I also have an 8 pound atha waiting to be hung. I need to get some axes hung but for some reason I’ve been obsessed with hammers lately.

    20" of Oak
    Collins Hudson Bay
    Total weight 2½lbs

    This handle, well i just love it. It came to me loosely hung and i rehung it then. Now I have rehung again for this Collins. The kerf & shoulder have seen better days.
    That said, i love this axe. The hang, the dirty and cavernous looking gaps at the tongue and kerf - wedge. Just makes it look mean and not give a care...just here to chop some wood he says.

    That's a great looking Hudson Bay pattern!
    Is that a forge welded bit or oodles of temper seen there?
    And he strikes again with another beautiful dark oak haft! Red or white oak?
    And is that resin I see? To help fill in the missing wood!
    I've used a two part epoxy resin a couple times. It works really well for filling in broken pieces of tongue. I haven't had to take any of those apart yet and I'm not really looking forward to it. NOT gonna be easy to get apart...
