Description

The design has its heritage in the larger riggers axes of North America, the bearded axes of Northern Europe.  It’s a carver (bushcraft axe) that you don’t have to worry about bringing into the woods with you, or letting it get dirty while doing camp-chores.  With a swept toe, flat-grind, large bit length, bearded blade, and a radius under the hammer poll for the web of the user’s hand, it was made to choke up, shave, and do detailed work.  The poll is hardened and can be used like a hammer. It helps with balance of the head overall, and gives leverage when choking up.  It has a 90 deg. spine for scraping tinder and for using a ferro-rod to start fires in a pinch, or just for fun.  The handle is straight for one or two handed use and can be cut to a custom size with a large hatchet eye to provide strength/durability, and a comfortable grip when choking up. The axe will be a good tool for carvers, bushcrafters, green-woodworkers, trappers, hunters, backpackers, day-hikers, off-road bikers, campers, paddlers, tradesmen, ranchers, homesteaders, hobbyists and collectors.  It can be worn on a belt, in a hammer/hatchet holster, in or on a pack, with a sling, in a go-bag, or in a tool box.
