The Jonaker axe head is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697.
As part of the hand grinding production process, the steel is struck multiple times thereby increasing its density and resulting in more durability of the axe.
The Jonaker head is constructed in such a way that there is a tempered zone designed to hold a very sharp edge even after many sharpenings.
The curved hickory handle is treated with linseed oil.
The Jonaker hatchet comes with a traditional leather protective sheath that is embellished with some unique Swedish decorative elements and includes a built in belt loop. (Replacement sheaths are available below.) The axe is shipped with a detailed users manual.
