Three times in a row I got the whole post compiled and hit the wrong button and erased it.
The two Kent pattern axes were a surprise gift from a friend in London. I sent him a surprise Jersey Pattern axe a few years ago, and this was his way of getting even.

The Sandvic loppers and two axes were gifts from a friend that is moving to Florida. The single is a Craftsman, and the double is a Keen Kutter with the original handle, Joe

I have a double bit that I bought at an estate sale. I cleaned it up and I am not able to make out who the maker is from the maker's mark. Maybe someone out there is familiar with the mark/brand. Thanks for any help!

I found this MARBLE,S # 10 CAMP AXE at a auction about 30 years ago. It was completely painted flat black paint. If I hadn’t been reading about Marble’s knives I would have passed on it. I took it to a guy a lot older than me and he said back in the days of CC camps they would paint all of the axes to keep the workers from stealing them. I soaked it in paint thinner and cleaned it up and it looks like new.
That MARBLE,S # 10 CAMP AXE is SWEET!!! A beautiful piece! Thanks for the great photos, after posting this I am going back to look at them again. :D

I can't make it out. It looks like there might be a fancy script "L" to the left. The BELL, or WBELL looks kind of crude. The bottom of one L is rounded and the other is more crisp. It might be a personal engraving. Try taking some water or oil and rubbing over the mark, that might get it to pop up a little better. I know I don't have one, but, it's ringing a bell, like I've seen it before. The pun was intended,Joe.

A Collins and a power kraft 100, with its original handle. The Collins we rehandled several times and use it a lot.
