Michigan, Mann Narrow

Narrow Michigan Pattern by Mann Edge Tool

The Narrow Michigan pattern made by Mann in the later half of the 1900s is often confused for the Cedar pattern and occasionally the Hudson Bay pattern. The poll sis shortened and rounded. The cheeks appear elongated due to the short poll, and the angle from the lower edge of the eye to the heel seems extreme. The bit is rounded/concave.

This more modern take on the Michigan pattern was typically noted in the days after Mann Edge Tool acquired the Collins Company. Heads of this pattern are noted under the Master Mechanic lines, Stanley, and numerous other 3rd party retailers.

(As always, please remember that there is significant variance in the patterns made by different manufacturers, and this description is merely a guide for assistance in identification.)
