1 and 3/4 pound head hand forged from scrap chromoly steel forklift fork. The blade is heat treated to 52 Rockwell hardness for a good balance of edge retention and toughness.
17' ergonomic handle turned from hickory with a black walnut wedge. Scortched and soaked with boiled linseed oil to improve longevity.
This small axe is much more capable than a standard hatchet, yet much more portable and versitle than a standard sized axe. It excels at limbing, making kindling, felling small trees, choping small logs, carving, and driving tent stakes.
