  • My "new" camping axe

    I've wanted a scaled down axe for camping for years. Been drooling over offerings from Granfors Bruks, but can't justify the scratch for one of them.

    Here's yesterday's garage sale find. It was made in Germany by Weibelhaus & Co, who were in business from 1911-1986. Mine is possibly a pre-War model. Paid $20 for it.

    I wire-wheeled the blade and rubbed some boiled linseed oil into the handle. Need to work a bit on the edge.

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

    Nice, I like that a lot.

            I'd prefer a bent handle over the straight, but I couldn't pass on the deal.

            I wanted this for hiking and camping, not for tactical apps.

                  hanley, that's a good catch! Those Plumb's are great.

                  My double-bit axe is an old pre-war Kelly Forge that belonged to my Grandpa.

                    That's a nice bushcrafter's axe. I know some people that would would gladly pay $100 for that.
