If your looking for a more affordable high quality axe this is it.
( I would rate the fit and finish as a high quality hardware store axe of the past )
High Quality drop forged carbon steel head of 2 1/4lbs.
High tempered blade holds a great edge!
26" Ash handle
The head on this size axe can have a cutting edge similar to a Wetterlings but with thicker cheeks for better splitting.
We are now putting a sharp working edge on these axes at our shop.
This is a true 3/4 size axe which makes a great "Bush" axe.
(This also makes a great back up or beater axe if you already own a high end axe) The ash handles on these axes is hit and miss on quality, the steel in the head and head pattern is excellent!
Made in Germany
Axes are not built like custom knives, just about any axe will not be perfect, this includes handle grain, head alignment, wedge and eye fit, forging marks or head patterns...this is the nature of the beast.
Our guarantee is that the steel quality in the head will not fail you, if there is a temper problem we will take care of it ( does not happen very often) We will also cover any loose heads or cracked handles right from the factory.
Once you start using your heavy duty chopping tool the care of your handle is in your own hands. How hard you swing and what you hit or miss. Wood handles have too many variables for me to offer any guarantee on them. Part of owning and using an axe is to be able to rehandle the axe, pick out a straight grained hickory handle at a hardware store and tune your axe as you see fit.
With that said we are pretty reasonable people if you have any issues....thanks Ben

I am quite satisfied with my Bahco bush axe;an excellent buy. I live in the country and am constantly clearing volunteer cedar, elm, and Hackberry. The axe handle is quite comfortable with extended use;chops well and splits firewood readily.
