The Sarek is a solid splitting axe, intended for heavier duties such as splitting logs and wood. The shape of the head, combined with slightly convex grinding, splits the wood. The Sarek axe has a long and straight handle made from American hickory, to gain maximum speed and control when splitting logs. It is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel. Made in Sweden.

The Sarek Splitting Axe is named after the Sarek National Park which is located in Jokkmokk Municipality, Lapland in northern Sweden. Established in 1909, the park is one of the oldest national parks in Europe. It is a high alpine area where the Sami people have lived from time immemorial. The valleys and the mountain slopes are grazing land for three Sami communal groups engaged in reindeer husbandry: the Sirges, Jåhkågaska tjiellde and Tuorpon.
