Vintage Collins Legitimus Hudson Bay Axe with 7 point crown logo has been completely restored, refinished, and is razor sharp. Head shows normal signs of use, and is in excellent condition– no breaks, cracks, or repairs. Stamps on the front are deep, with some letters of LEGITIMUS missing, which is not abnormal for Collins. See pics for actual details.

New curly hickory handle has been double-dyed in red over black for deep color saturation that adds contrast to the figuring. Handle has been HAND-SHAPED, hand sanded, soaked in Odie’s Oil, and hand-rubbed for a clean, smooth look and feel. Clean seal around top and bottom of eye and hung with a hardwood wedge – handle sticks out from head approximately 3/16”.

Comes with a 9/10 ounce English bridle leather sheath(s) that has been treated with leather conditioning oil. The sheath has been assembled with solid brass burr rivets that have been hand peened for a traditional hammered look and has a solid brass Sam Browne button stud closure.
