Bringing back an old subject.  My brother in law left the military in 1976, moved to Arkansas and bought a mountain to grow rice.  It would probably help knowing that he was going to live off the land and rice to cleanse his body of the toxins he had ingested while in the Air Force.  Anyway, there are hours of stories about his adventures, the end of the story he worked for NASA and the shuttle program, a bona fide genius with out a lick of common sense.  Since my wife doesn't read the FF I can say it runs in the family.

Anyway again, he bought a lot of old tools to clear and till a rock mountain, the tools were in his shop when he passed and I inherited them.  This little hatchet was there, rusted up and broken handle.  I cleaned the rust to see if a name was on it, but no, and re handled it.  It is a cast head, that holds a razors edge.  Oh, we also inherited the rock mountain in Arkansas.
