With something like an axe, I would tend to say that the haft (handle) is not the actual weapon/tool, so until the blade/head gets replaced, then yes, it is still your grandfather's axe.

With something with multiple parts like a boat, it gets trickier and the witty answer of 'exactly halfway" is just that, a witty answer.

If there are 201 boards, 7 ribs, 3 masts, etc...where exactly is "halfway"?
