Kelly Oil Whetted, Hand Honed axe. From when Kelly Axe Manufacturing Company operated out of Kentucky and Indiana from 1874 to 1904. Before they changed the name slightly and location.
Almost 5 pounds with a 5 inch edge, 7 inches from poll to edge. #acidetchedaxe

Been a while since I added a Raven to the flock, the last year or so I've just been restoring the inventory.
Black Raven made by the Kelly Axe Manufacturing Company in Charleston West Virginia between 1890-1920s.

"This axe is SOLID STEEL and HAND HAMMERED it has a TAPER EYE which binds handle and RIDGE BLADE easy to sharpen." Kelly manufactured axe, the other side features a hardware chain that would buy these heads in bulk, in return having a store brand etched into the head. However I have only seen two examples of this scenario with this particular Kelly brand.

"This axe is SOLID STEEL and HAND HAMMERED it has a TAPER EYE which binds handle and RIDGE BLADE easy to sharpen." The back of the Keystone axe posted previously. I am not thrilled with the amount of work required near the poll to remove and smooth away the mushrooming. The problem with this business is that you can't put back what you take off. I may revisit this head one day and dress out the rest to match.

Arguably the most sought after etch is the Black Raven, a line of axes manufactured by Kelly Axe Mfg Co during the early 1900s. The successful model was continued by the American Axe and Tool Company after they purchased the Kelly company in 1930. #acidetchedaxe #axe #blackraven #kelly #kellyaxemfgco #americanaxeandtoolco #restoration #vintagetools #handtoolthursday #antique

"This axe is SOLID STEEL and HAND HAMMERED it has a TAPER EYE which binds handle and RIDGE BLADE easy to sharpen." Wells and Nellegar was a hardware store out of Chicago. This axe was used and marked by the Midland Railroad after it's manufacture in the early 1900s. It appears to be one of very few axes which carried an etch on both sides. Made by Kelly.

Hung on a hickory handle with black walnut and locast wedge.

Came up with this head the other day. I think it's a kelly flint edge. Laid around a long time without much use. #kellyaxe #axecollector #axeporn #kellyflintedge #oldaxes #kellyworks #kellyaxemfgco

Arguably the most sought after etch is the Black Raven, a line of axes manufactured by Kelly Axe Mfg Co during the early 1900s. If you look on my page for other Ravens you can see this one lacks the 'American Fork and Hoe' text beneath the bird, which helps us age the hatchet to be before Kelly was bought out. Hung on a red elm handle with a cherry laminated end. This axe is available for purchase through my etsy site with link in my bio. As usual a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the National Park Service.

A Kelly Etched Axe lineup. Attempted to round up any etched heads manufactured by Kelly for Kelly, they manufactured countless etched heads for hardware companies and other advertisement companies. There are probably another half dozen Etched Kelly heads I don't yet have. #axejunkies #acidetchedaxe #kellyaxemfgco #kellyaxeandtoolco #vintagetools #restoration

This is a rare WC Kelly Perfect Southern Kentucky pattern with Phantom Bevels that is in awesome shape. Many of the original Kelly Perfect axes were based around beveled edges. This one in particular, was made at either the Louisville or Alexandria plant sometime between 1889/90 - 1904 before Kelly Axe Mfg. Co.'s subsequent move to Charleston. Early Perfects in Louisville only had patent dates as markings. In the later years they swapped to the above which was also used in Alexandria for a few short years before the company moved to a more uniform Kelly Perfect Mark. #axe #axes #axerestoration #restoration #original #kellyperfect #kellyaxemfgco #woodtools #axejunkies #axeking #woodworking #vintage #antique #showyourwork #usa #kentuckypattern #southernkentuckypattern #bevelededges #axeporn
