3/4 Grooved Axe
3/4 Grooved Axe

This is a pretty nice axe. It has a great bit with no nicks. I find it very interesting and in my opinion this axe was still under construction. The pecking and scraping marks are still visible on most of the body of the axe. The base has a nice final polish. The bit has some polishing and it shows no signs of use-wear. Also there is a small area that shows the beginnings of a fine final polish.

Fine Square Sided Hardstone Celt
Fine Square Sided Hardstone Celt

Here is a really fine Hopewell Style Celt that should make top shelf display in any collection. The material it is made of has a high concentration of hematite and is very heavy for it’s size. This piece is extremely well made and highly polished. Under a loop you can see the fine grains of hehatite throughout but more concentrated in some areas. There is a very tiny more historic nick on the bit as seen in the photos.

Wonkey Full Grooved Porphyry Axe
Wonkey Full Grooved Porphyry Axe

But it still did the job. My mom would have described this axe as being “all catty wompus”. It is unbroken, that is just how it was made (Maybe he was a beginner). That didn’t matter to the maker, as you can see it was well used and aparrently used a lot. There may have been some use damage at the bit early in it’s live but it was still used long after that. It has many quartz crystal and fossil inclusions in the greenish stone. The color is not well represented in some of the pictures.

Highly Polished Porphyry 3/4 Grooved Axe
Highly Polished Porphyry 3/4 Grooved Axe

This axe is made of a very fine grain hardstone with many crystal inclusions. It is highly polished and showing much use wear at the bit. The pecking is still visable in the deep groove. Some of the pecking marks at the poll end are actually small crystal inclusions. I noticed while taking the photos that it had a brush with a piece of farm equipment that you can see in the right light. I have always liked this axe because of it’s look.

Here is a great little axe that is very well made. Much of the pecking is still visable where there wasn’t a lot polish near the groove area. The bit still holds a nice polish and has some dulling from normal use. This is a great well made working man’s axe. Nothing fancy.

This is a great little axe. It is fat and stubby like a fire hydrant and very symmetrical. It is nicely polished overall but even more so on the groove. Even with the polishing, the pecking marks are still very visable giving it a great look. There is a lot of ancient wear on the bit from use.

This axe was purchased at a farm auction in 1967. It was said to have been found on the property by the mans grandfather. He had kept it on his work bench thus the spot of red paint, etc. I have not tried to remove it. It is a very nice well made axe with a great bit.
