Length with Handle




The shape of the head, combined with slightly convex grinding, splits the wood. The Sarek axe has a long and straight handle made from American hickory, to gain maximum speed and control when splitting logs. It is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel. The steel head is struck multiple times to increase density and durability.

The Sarek Splitting Axe is named after the Sarek National Park which is located in Jokkmokk Municipality, Lapland in northern Sweden. Established in 1909, the park is one of the oldest national parks in Europe.

"The hefty steel head begs to be driven into logs. When it's not out chopping, the hickory handled Sarek is pretty enough to rest above the mantel."
