Wetterlings first produced this classic hatchet back in the 1950s. They make it now just as they did then, a 500g head with nail puller and 380mm handle. Included with the axe is a special edition "Scout Handbook" with safety instructions, maintenance tips and inspirations for young scouts. Once the scout knows how to use the axe correctly, he or she can proudly attach the "Wetterlings axe medallion" scout badge to his or her scout shirt as proof. Hand forged from Swedish steel with an American hickory handle. Made in Sweden and supplied with a leather sheath.

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.
