SAW26H: Swedish Forest Axe

Chopping axes for felling smaller trees and limbing logs. Well-dimensioned and finely balanced for precision when chopping. The steel is handcrafted and can be ground to perfect sharpness. The axe head is hand forged from Swedish quality steel alloyed from iron, carbon, silicon, manganese and vanadium. The hand forging uses presses that deliver many blows, making the axe edges stronger than if they were drop forged. The special axe steel alloy makes high quality gardening possible. The handle is of prime American hickory and securely fitted in the eye of the axe with wooden and steel wedges. After grinding, hardening and tempering, the axe keeps a Rockwell hardness of 57-58. 25 1/2" overall. 6 1/2" axe head with 3 1/2" cutting edge. Head Weighs 1.87 Pounds. Made in Sweden.

Great axe
This axe is great quality like all the other wetterlings axes. The longer handle is really useful in the forest it processes wood quickly and is really useful for the winters where I live in Canada
