This “kelly perfect” dates to the early 1930’s. Just as the great depression got into full swing kelly axe works and true temper merged to combat the crumbling economy. This beautiful “bluegrass” pattern on this felling axe reflects a moment where the production of a tool came very close to an artform. Sometimes called a “phantom” wedge this pattern on an axe head will dress up any collection. The new 36 inch fawn’s foot hickory handle is 36 inches long and has the timberwolf maker’s mark and a traditional jute whipped collar. The hand crafted leather axe mask is done with a snakeskin accent and finished with a latigo leather strap and buckle. Detail of the bluegrass axe pattern and the leather mask. Detail of the axe head in its mask. A sword and rifle will go into a scabbard, a knife into a sheath, and an axe goes into a “mask”.
