Yesterday in the post I received an axe head from lowtech ( many thanks
). It needs a bit of TLC. I have never restored an axe head so this will be fun for all.
here is a link to the original posting http://forum.multitool.or...ex.php/topic,40974.0.html
so first off here it is upon arrival. Micra for measurement sake.
here is the flip side
and into an oil bath to loosen some rust up
after a couple of hours and a good wipedown with a rag...
From the marks i can make out it is a Helko brand axe head - made in Germany. Not sure at to the date range on it. There are some numbers looks like above the name and a clover type mark on the flip side. It appears to been green at some point as there is green paint on it.
