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 crafted from sustainably sourced American hickory. The blades are hardened to the German DIN 7287 B manufacturing standard for maximum life and reliability, and come with a rubber edge protector.
All products are made in Germany. Manufactured from German high grade carbon steel (Rockwell Hardness 47-56 HRC).
