This old axe belonged to my dad, who passed away 3 years ago. I don't know what kind it is, or for sure how old it is. I do know that it's at least 35 years old, because I remember dad using it then, but its probably much older. I do know that he chopped a whole lot of wood with it, until he got to weak to swing it anymore. Anyway, I thought it would be a fun project to clean it up, give it a new handle, and put it back into use. Here is the condition I found it in. Here it is after my initial cleaning. That was 2 hours of grinding and sanding. I'll work on it some more Friday, and pick up a handle when I go to town this weekend. I don't know much about axes, and have never re-hung one. I did watch the U. S. Forest Service video, "Axe To Grind". If anyone has any tips or suggestions I would appreciate it. Thanks!
