This axe is completely made by hand from the hand forged head, to the handle that has been split out of a hickory log and shaped with a hatchet and drawknife.

The head has been hand forged from mild steel with a 1084 high carbon steel bit forge welded in for the cutting edge. Hardened and tempered to give it resilience and a long lasting cutting edge. The handle has been split out of hickory and shaped with hand tools to capture the strength of the wood. The sheath is hand stitched vegetable tanned leather with a hand forged copper button.


The head weighs 1.5 lbs, and has a 3 3/4" cutting edge.
The handle is 17" long.


This is a wonderful size and shape axe to take camping with you, the weight of the head makes it a powerful chopper that can still be effectively wielded with one hand. It makes short work of branches and smaller trees.

The style of this axe also yields itself to be used for carving, the balance of it allows you to take large slices of wood off with little effort. Great for small hewing projects as well.

Please note that since this axe is made by hand, and measured by eye that there are imperfections. Not the sort of imperfections that negatively effect the function of the tool, but those that give it character, and set it apart from the hardware store axes of today. This is a high quality tool, that if taken care of should last a very long time.
