These are powerful axes designed to split logs into chunks of wood, there's a clue in the name. A splitting axe cleaves the log along the grain rather than cut across it. For this reason the shape of the cutting edge has an aggressive angle and the bit has ridges. Both these aspects make splitting easier and ensure the axe doesn't get stuck in the wood. The head is hand forged Swedish steel securely fitted to an American hickory handle. Weight 1.5kg, length 740mm supplied with a protective sheath of tanned leather.


For over 100 years Wetterlings have been making axes.Today 10 blacksmiths proudly continue the tradition of producing world class axes. This means that not one axe is the same as the other and every axe that leaves the factory in Sweden has its own unique character and bears its own distinguishing mark. A hand forged Wetterlings has a hardness of 58-59 degee Rockwell. Each axe is slowly forged, a methodical task that demands time and patience and is entirely dependent upon the skill of the blacksmith. After being hammered for a long period of time the steel becomes extremely strong and can be ground to a high level of sharpness. Wetterlings turn the axe handles using brown heartwood of American hickory. This wood has the impact resistance and strength expected of an axe handle. If you want the world's finest hand made axe in terms of durability and performance buy a Wetterlings. 


N.B. By purchasing any axe, you are confirming that you are AGED 18 or over.
