Description
SAW174: Classic Scout Axe
Wetterlings
 
Wetterling Axes are hand forged from Swedish quality steel alloyed from iron, carbon, silicon, manganese and vanadium. 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 hardening possible. After grinding, hardening and tempering, the Wetterling axes keep a Rockwell hardness of 57-58. These are the main reasons the Wetterling axes hold a keen edge with good "sting" longer than most axes. The handles are lathed from American hickory. The best stress capacity and resistance to blows makes hickory the wood of choice for good axe handles. The Wetterlings Classic Scout Axe is 14-1/2" overall with a 5-3/8" axe head and 3" cutting edge. It includes a leather blade cover with belt loop and weighs 1.7 lbs.
