This hatchet is the perfect belt or pack axe. The head and blade geometry makes these axes extremely efficient for kindling, limbing branches and even felling small trees.The Scandinavian style 'beard' on the axe also means that it can be used for a wide variety of other purposes around the camp fire - whittling pegs, cutting leather or even for cooking and cutting meat.
Supplied with a fitted leather sheath.
DELIVERY - AXES ARE FORGED TO ORDER. If axe is not in stock then delivery can be up to 8 weeks.
CARE - IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU LOOK AFTER YOUR AXE.
Keep your axe in a dry place - Make sure that the bit and the bit sheath are not wet when you put on the sheath. Oil the axe head before it is put away for any length of time to prevent rust.
Axe heads are forged for cutting or carving – do not use as a splitting wedge or hammer onto the poll of the axe. This may cause it to deform or splinter.
Axe handles can come loose – check that the head is fitted securely before using and refit if loose. Oil the handle (linseed oil) at least once a year especially before storing away.
