    Wondering if anyone can help me with this item. I believe it's an old trade axe from the fur trading days. It does have a mark on it if you look closely it looks like an X to me. Found in North Western Ontario Canada. Would like to get anyone's input on the age of this. Thanks so much. :)

      Looks like a Hudson Bay Trade Ax. The X is what is called a Touch Mark. 1800's

      "French" style

      Where they blacksmith forged like this appears to be?
    4. UncleRon UncleRon, 5 years ago
      They were forged, but this kind of "mass production" pattern made for export was often made with some form of power hammer.

      UncleRon, didn't a French company produce one like this for export back then, thought i read it somewhere?
