Current product made in the USA.

This axe company was purchased several years ago and production moved back to America. Researched and found the head is forged in America,then finished and the hickory handle set in Smyrna, Maine. The head is stamped USA On mine, the handle was well set and tight. The bit is straight and perfectly in line with the handle. The handle isn’t heartwood like my Wetterlings, but has nice grain orientation. All I had to do was sand off the varnish and give a few coats of boiled linseed oil. Also removed the finish from the bit and sharpened it. The steel felt reasonably hard during sharpening, but I haven’t worked it hard yet. It’s a chopper more then a splitter but should work great at a campsite. Great size for the trunk or strapped to a backpack frame. Glad I purchased this excellent smaller axe.

Great American product

The head is a well finished forging, the handle has a good grain pattern and finish. With minimal work the edge will be perfect. I like to hike, camp, and canoe and this is the perfect size and weight for all but the most minimalist trips.

Axe head is made in China

This is not a truly American made axe. It's axe head is made on China. At best it is assembled in America from parts made in other countries. Steel in axe head is unknown. A truly America axe of any quality paying decent wages would be in the 150-200 dollar range. Bait and switch
