Maine Wedge Axe
Forged in our shop from high quality tool steel, this 2.5 lb. axe is hung on a 28″ hickory handle and comes with a custom made leather sheath.
This axe is made just like Oakland, Maine’s Emerson & Stevens did in the early 1900’s.
Axes and hatchets are hand-forged and heat-treated out of 4140 or O1 Tool Steel.
4140 cold finished annealed is a chromium-molybdenun alloy steel that can be oil hardened to relatively high hardenability. The chromium content provides good hardness penetration & the molybdenum imparts uniformity of hardness and high strength.
O1 Tool Steel is the original oil-hardening, “non-shrinking” tool steel that can be hardened to the Rockwell C 65 range from a low austenitizing temperature. O1 is a general-purpose tool steel that is typically used in applications where alloy steels cannot provide sufficient hardness, strength, and wear resistance.
