This German-style Splitting Axe has a unique design that allows it to penetrate and split the toughest logs. The blade is narrow at the tip like a traditional felling axe, but becomes wider towards the back like a splitting maul. This allows the tool to penetrate deeply into the wood and the wide cheeks will spread the cut during penetration of the wood.
The forged blade is made of 1045 high carbon steel and is heat-treated and sharp out of the box. The high carbon steel holds an edge very well and is easy to sharpen after repeated uses. It has a thick, comfortable handle made out of American hickory that fits your hand like a glove. Handcrafted leather sheath included.
