Since it seems that you and many of the others are quite knowledgeable about pretty much everything, i have a question to ask about vintage/old axes. Figured id ask about one of these Axes I've come across and actually have in my possession at the moment. I can not find any information on it other than an obscure bit about the Alois and Annie Weber House in Keokuk. On the webpage it says that Alois Weber ran a hardware and tools company and was well known throughout the Midwest until his death in 1917. Its a beautiful double bit, especially after i cleaned it all up from the dirt, grime, etc of a metal detection find. I was wondering if anyone out there had any more information on it and or other information on Weber and his business. It just seems odd to me that the business just went to ground after his death. If he was so reputable and upstanding citizen wouldn't there be more info or anything more about the tools and hardware he sold? Anyways let me know and thanks all.
