Scandinavian splitting axes are designed with a double sided offset wedge. This prevents the blade from sticking and is especially useful when working with logs that are twisted or have a difficult grain. Our Scandinavian axe handles are hand crafted in Switzerland from sustainably sourced and FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council) American hickory. The blades are hardened to the German DIN 7287 B manufacturing standard for maximum life and reliability.
All products are made in Germany. Manufactured from German C45 high grade carbon steel (Rockwell Hardness 53-56 HRC).
