1900 Right or Left-hand Hewing Axe


Besides offering just the basic knife-edge broad axe, it is available in a right or left-handed model with a scissorgrind. This means that the side of the axe that does not have an edge is flat & the bevel edge is only on one side of the axe (depending on if it is for a right or a left-handed hewing).

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.
