Item details

The brilliance of the Blacksmith is that reuse and renewal of past objects is apart of the craft. This handy axe is reforged from old high carbon steel horse shoe'ers rasps, hence; the "Rasp Axe"

I have developed a specific design that uses the entire rasp for the axe, nothing added and nothing taken away. The bonus on the back is a handy spike, to allow retrieval of logs, branches or wrangle a stray piece of wood onto the campfire or chisel end for carving. Intended for light camp use or tactical trail blazing.

Each axe is hand forged, slight variations in exact design will occur. The top half of the axe is re-heat treated for optimal edge retention and strength. The bottom end of the handle has the tang of the rasp curled around to use as a lanyard ring.

This product will rust, its steel, and bare steel will rust if you leave it unprotected.
This will have a few coats of strong wax applied and I suggest the owner use light household oil on occasion and let the steel develop a natural patina, a patina will not affect the edge retention or sharpness.

The axe measures approximately 15 to 16 inches long, blade width is about 2.5 inches and overall head length is about 5 inches, weighing about 2 pounds.

Hot stamped with DGForge touch mark.


FAQs

All of my work is forged from mild steel and will readily rust if the surface coating is compromised. Rust is the natural and relaxed state of steel. Certain items are no suitable for dishwasher or sink or for outside.
