Just double checked my pic. Looks like 1953, possibly 1933
They could be seen as duplicates, just 2 different finishes.
All good guess! They may have held onto both names as not to let go of the reputation of the OS name. Or they didn't change the name on the bank account. It's weird though.
I'd go with 53. If it were 33 the typeface of "Rixford" would be different.
Great call Glenn.
I cant wait to see it @crbnSteeladdict
I may be biased, growing up and living here, but this Rixford mystery just seems so quintessential New England family run show thing to do. For whatever the reason...I hope we find out one day so we can get some rest lol!
I picked one up on eBay a couple years ago -- 4 pounder, clean steel. Nice axe and holds an edge well. All my axes are users and this ones getting lots of use.
Here's an O.S. Rixford broad hatchet, likely made from 1880-1896, hardened poll and all!
It’s in great condition. The stamps are crisp and the craftsmanship is…I have no words to describe all the subtleties in the craftsmanship. If I tried, I would sound stupid. I wish the pictures could do it justice.
Such a fine piece and example! I hope to come across an O.S. etched axe like that for my collection one day.
Supreme comes to mind when i think about this axe
That stamp reminds me of the L. and I.J. White stamps.
