Natural Axes are restored vintage axe heads that are hung on Tennessee hickory handles to US Forest Service best practices and finished with organic boiled linseed oil. This would be ideal for an axe you would use every day.
Painted axes are the same as our Natural axes but the handles go through a process of painting that is both beautiful and at the same time usable. The lacquer that we use is extremely durable. These are great for light use (just to protect their beauty) and as a wall hanger for decoration.
We can restore any axe head a customer may have or procure one for you. We can do that in one of two ways: one is a light restore which leaves some of the axes patina and age, and the second is a full restoration where we will restore the axe to as close to new as possible while preserving the factory markings and roll marks. After the head has been restored we hang it on a handle length of the customer’s choice and finish it naturally with linseed oil or by painting the handle with the colors and design the customer has chosen.
