This item has an axe head weight of 3.5 Lbs and a handle length of 30 inches. The head is the product of blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork and the curved shaft is made of US-sourced hickory. That handle is treated with linseed oil.

  • This axe head is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697.
  • As part of the production process, the steel is struck multiple times thereby increasing its density and resulting in more durability of the axe.
  • The head is constructed in such a way that there is a tempered zone designed to hold a very sharp edge even after many sharpenings.
  • Each axe comes with a traditional leather protective sheath that is embellished with some unique Swedish decorative elements. The axe comes with a detailed users manual.
