A lightweight axe with a longer handle, made to fit both one- and two-hand use. The two-hand use makes it possible to chop with a greater force. This axe is also good for limbing…if you need to sharpen a stick or chop some wood. It is a recommended axe when living the traditional life in the woods; where forest, wood, axe and fire are intertwined.
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
