    I admire old axes and hatchets but I'm not into using or collecting them much like a buddy of mine. The Collins name is popular around here since they were produced locally from the 1820's until 1966 when they closed down. Then the name was bought out and lived on until 2003.
    Another local producer was Stanley, but not nearly as large as Collins which was the largest producer in the world.
    Both companies sold internationally, and reasonably priced axes and hatchets of both can be found on eBay.

    Stanley Axes

    My wife's relative worked for Collins and handed down a presentation machete that was specially polished and made to be presented to foreign dignitaries. It's a factory 2nd and not first quality, but it's still a nice example to look at. But I haven't had it out for a long time to be able to take photos.

    Nice paper label cruiser. I just finshed a no brand boys axe that looks like it was ground down once before and that removed the makers mark.

    and an rehandled an old craftsman hatchet
