The 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 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 hickory handle is treated with linseed oil.
Each axe comes with a traditional leather protective sheath. (Replacement sheaths are available) The axe is shipped with a detailed users manual.
