I recently found an awesome Ten Eyck No.1 claw hatchet, that I didn't even know I owned. It had been in my shed, hidden away for the past 35 years. The hatchet is in great shape. On January 29, 2018, I posted it on eBay, starting at $85. From what I have researched on the web, this hatchet is very rare. It was manufactured by the Ten Eyck Axe Manufacturing Co. in Cohoes, NY around 1880. The company was in business for only two years, when the factory burnt to the ground. If anyone is interested, please send me an email.
Thanks

A picture is pretty much a good idea, if you really wanna sell something. Just sayin'...

Pretty cool ax. Can't say I've ever seen another like it.

I appreciate that comment, coming from a seasoned tool collector. The hatchet is marked Teneyck No.1. I'm not sure if that means it's the first hatchet the company made or not. There is very little information about the company, since the factory burnt down in 1881, after only two years in existence.
