Chopping and forest axes are for felling smaller trees and limbing logs. The dimensions and fine balance of these Wetterlings forest axes offer precise control when chopping. Honing the hand forged steel head quickly achieves perfect sharpness, whilst a hardness of 58-59 HRC gives great edge retention. The handle is carefully selected American hickory and securely fitted in the eye of the axe with wooden and steel wedges. A treatment with linseed oil adds protection. Weight 850g, length 650mm, 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.
