A finely-balanced, hand forged and functional axe for hunting, fishing, camping, bushcraft or survival. The large hunting axe is still small enough to put in your rucksack or on your belt when going out into the forest. The high quality Swedish carbon steel head is 148mm long from edge to back with a 74mm cutting edge, hardened and tempered to 58-59 HRC. The handle is specially selected heartwood of American hickory. This timber is impact-resistant, strong and treated with linseed oil. Both wood and metal wedges secure the handle to the head.

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.
