    image.jpeg I spotted this sad little guy at a yard sale on the dollar table. My wife had picked up a couple things and the lady rounded down, basically gave me the hatchet. I'll clean it up and save it. The poll is not mushroomed and the handle is tight. The edge isn't bad. But the rust.

    I have restored and rehandled several axes and I've got Collins, plumb, gransfors, but my hatchet selection was missing a small all purpose hatchet. This vintage Keen Kutter is going to clean up ok.

    Nice! I love to find old tools like that and bring them back when I can. Getting harder to find them now though as so many others are on the look out for them.

    Nice job of cleaning up the old Keen Kutter hatchet! I always liked having a small hatchet around to clear out old shrubs and small saplings along with trimming the branches on the yearly Christmas tree. I got this Nordlund hatchet from my Dad when he no longer needed it.

    Is anybody going to San Antone?
    I never get to find cool things like that at yard or garage sales... Normally just find clothes for overweight women who got on weight watchers.
