Camp Axe +
I have been making forged camp axes for a few years now, but I've never offered any for sale. The previous ones have just done duty here in the forest and I have made changes and improvements with each version.
This axe represents the best of what I've come to like about axe design, and they are spectacularly strong, durable and capable.
Forged from 5160 with a hard head and a spring shaft, the main edge does wonders to limbs and the chisel spike is strong enough to drive through 1/16" mild steel plate at full-force without hardly a scratch (soup cans therefore, aren't much of a threat). The natural forge texture is visible everywhere except the satin finished areas around the perimeter and near the edge.
The handle is curly Claro walnut secured with African blackwood pins.
The leather head case keeps it sharp and ready when you need it.
The main cutting blade is 3" long, the head is 6.25" across and the overall length is 13.75"
(note: this axe is essentially identical to the curly maple versions available as well, with the exception that it is just a little longer and heavier.)
