    TennesseeGal,

    I'd love to see a photo when it is cleaned up. I got two axe heads in two hunts here--one like you found and one like Dan found. I'll clean 'em up and get 'em posted.


    Cheers,

    Hey Dan! I'm not the expert here but I'm going to pass on what I learned from others here. I'm soaking my axe head in apple cider vinegar as directed by some of the more experienced relic hunters here. Some mentioned using a dremel also after the soak to knock off some left over stuff. I've been soaking mine for about 5 days and it has a way to go. I'm going to change the vinegar out tomorrow. You'll want to rinse it well with water and seal it after it dries. Someone recommended a product but I'll have to look it up. Do a search on TNet for axe heads and you'll find some posts.

    Was out MDing today for the first time and unearthed this double bitted blade. Site was previously a house from 1930s and then a bar from 50s to 80s. Not sure what was here before that but it is a field beside local river. The area was swamp until settlers cleared area and put up levees. Sidenote: there are numerous Indian campsites within half mile radius.

    Going to try vinegar bath to restore..will post pics of that later.

    Neat old axe head. Ya gotta wonder who used it years ago and what he built or chopped down with it. Axe heads are always an interesting find.

    Kuger,

    That's an interesting example in the lower left! Great axe collection! It's wonderful that Iron doesn't rust out there where you are. I wish we had the good fortune of iron holding up well over here.

    Cheers,

    Buck

    Thanks Buck...I will post a pic of what they often look like....these guys had a knack for using them for things they werent intended to do.......
    Yes,that is an interesting "hatchet",it actually came from a very early '49-50 is site.It depends area to area on what is in the soil as to how the iron holds up.The ones in the middle came from an arid area where 130 year old tin looks like new!

    Recently I am interested in axes, itself I dug out couple of pieces. In the winter in our region there is no opportunity to dig - the earth froze. But there is time for restoration of axes. Here two it is made recently. There are two more, but they aren't processed. Russian fighting axes 17-18 century.

    Just found my first axehead yesterday. Looked all night for an ID and nothing. Looked on the chart and the first head on there I clicked and tadah!! Turpintine Box Axe. Makes since because down here in Florida you find the old pots around the old pines and the grooves where they were marked and drained of their sap. Great thread! I believe I am going to try
    electrolysis on it, any other suggestions?

    I found this axe head on an old wagon trail in Bogue Chitto MS while metal detecting. Any suggestions on age and type are appreciated as I know nothing on the subject. If I'm leaving any critical info out please let me know. Thanks for the help.

    This is different
    I picked this up at a market. Have not been able to get an identification, though Dimendave's turpentine axe head (above) is similar, but not sure… Any ideas? It is stamped by its maker's name - WARD - (he must have been proud of his handiwork), no date but it says it's warranted (whatever that means) and has a neat little crest. Is this guy an axe head maker to the world, or just to tradesmen in the Geelong area south of Melbourne, Australia where I got it?
