Unique hand forged axe with laminated carbon steel edge.
All of my hand made axes are unique, and even the handle is custom made and fitted for this particular ax.
The axe head is made from mild steel, and has a carbon steel edge laminated by forge welding. The ax is very sharp.
The handle is custom made from birch, and finished in a traditional way with pine tar. The pine tar finish gives the handle supreme grip (without being sticky) compared to other types of finishes. Pine tar is also a very good wood preservative, traditionally used in Scandinavia on a wide selection of wooden objects, including boats and wooden skis.
Included in the price is a leather sheath, also hand made to fit this particular axe.
This ax is light enough to carry with you on longer hikes and adventures.
