This Japanese axe is a specially designed, & traditional Japanese carpenter's axe. It is excellent for woodworking due to the distinctive shape of the axe head which permits one's hand directly behind the axe head & blade for precise carving & woodwork, gripping almost straight above the center of the cutting edge for stability & control. The head is made of forged steel & the blade keeps a very sharp edge. An excellent axe for your woodworking needs, & also good for light hewing for small kindling pieces. *Note: Not designed for heavy striking and hewing.
