Found this axe at a flea market, looking to try and date it and refurbish it. Any suggestions on colour or finish? Thanks.
The HB cold stamp on one side with the weight on the other side means this axe was made before 1988. I would guess sometime between the 1960-1988. The pattern looks more like an Ohio or hatchet pattern, than the Yankee. But it also looks like this axe might have been re-profiled. The HB stamp is very close to the bit and the angles are a bit rough. It would be interesting to see if the axe head still weighs close to 2.8 lb or if it’s been ground down to a smaller weight.
As for a color, the Hults Bruk Agdor range uses WEDE SHOPPRIMER, Blue #5 – a vinyl resin primer available with active anticorrosive pigments. Not sure where you’d find that in the US. But a nice color.
