The "Double Bit Working Axe" is based off late 19th century American working axes where the heavy balanced feel & versatility of axes were paramount. Typically, one blade was sharpened to a finely honed, narrow felling edge, while the second blade was ground slightly blunter, & used for knots & cutting near the ground where a finely sharpened blade was more likely to be damaged. Made of the highest quality Swedish steel available, this beauty of an axe weighs 4-3/4 lb! It has two larger 6-1/4" head faces & is excellent for larger trees. Hickory Handle is 35" long & straight which will give serious power to the cut. Axe includes two grain leather sheaths for the blades.
Each axe head is hand-forged from special Swedish steel which is then honed, tempered, & annealed to the perfect hardness by the experienced Gränsfors Bruk Swedish smiths who stamp their initials on the head, creating a one-of-a-kind masterpiece you'll treasure for years to come.
