This axe efficiently splits logs along the grain, the shape of the cutting edge, with its aggressive angle and relief ensures the axe does not stick in the wood. Most of the effect comes from the high speed, the momentum which easily forces the wood apart. Raw power is not as important as the speed the axe hits the wood. The over-sized head, when compared to the handle is why the Small Splitting Axe chops smaller logs so easily. Hand forged from Swedish steel with an American hickory handle. Made in Sweden and supplied with a buffalo leather sheath. Length 500mm, weight 900g.

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.
