    The way the upper edge flares slightly from the handle combined with the neck, sure looks like a Kentucky. Cool find, at any rate!! Skypilot

    Your axe appear to have the simple hand made markings and don't appear more refined in style.

    yeah i have seen the Kelly hand made Axe all over the net some going for 150$ and on that site it said the Kelly cross cut markings was UN common.. that make it worth more? i think the thing is cool just would love to know in what year it was made think I'm going to clean it up and see if it has more markings on it
