Hi, I’m Jim.

I’m doing research and working with others to create an archive of historic axe brands.

One of my frustrations trying to learn about axe history is the lack of consistent information. Everything is buried in 10-year-old forum posts, often with broken links/images. But, I’m hoping this can be a consistent source for the future.

Being Canadian, I am starting with Canadian brands but someday I would love this site to be a global resource of global brands. So, if you have pictures or information about other brands – please send them along to museum@axeandtool.com.


Special thanks to the growing list of folks who have provided images and insights for articles.
