Seller: jenn-vinn (457) 100%, Location: Vancouver, Washington, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 261930433235 Details: Found in my in laws shed when we inherited his house, have little information about it. I've searched online and had only found one like it until someone finally told me today (5-3-16) what it was. Until now it'd been listed same as the only other one I had found when I began researching, I just did the "sell one like it" button, which was listed as a rare firemans/logging tool. Now that I know it for brush clearing, updating info. :-) The handles are different on the brush hooks I see, the others I've seen had a newer style curved handle where this one is homemade and straight. The blades looked the same style. The family members that I have been able to ask about it, all say it was made by my husband's great grandfather who did logging and they say he made it for use while he was working in the woods. Now that I know it's for brush removal, it makes more sense. Great grandfather would whittle tiny people and objects out of wood when on break, the family was poor and he had a family of 9 including himself to provide for. I can picture him using it to clear brush around area's being prepped for logging. :-) I cannot find/see any stamps, logos, or any identifying markings that would indicate it was not hand made as family says. Thank you for the gentleman who finally helped me put a name to it, my husband and I had never seen one before we found this. Please let me know if there's any questions, I can always ask family and hope they might have answers. Thank you for looking! I will be shipping using UPS ground - or whichever is their least expensive. Thank you! :-)8/10/16 - a friend who knows about tools says that it has a "zero grind". That it was made by someone who knew what they were doing because it's blade is shaped so it wouldn't catch up in brush on the back swing. I still don't know what any of that really means but thought maybe you might. :-)
