To slowly hand forge an axe is a true hand craft. Wetterlings value the quality of this procedure and allows the work to take it's time, to perform the absolutely best result possible. It takes decades to learn the craft to perfection.

 

 

It starts with first-rate Swedish carbon steel being slowly forged by the skilled Wetterlings blacksmiths. Our forging hammers have been used every day since 1917 and it is still the preferred method to reach the best result. No afterwork is needed to correct mistakes or adjust the shape, and we proudly leave small hammer marks that proves it is hand forged. It is free from paint and grinding, carefully hardened, sharpened by hand and polished until it shines.

We turn the Wetterlings handles from American Hickory in our wood workshop. The wood is hard with long fibers, good stress capacity and high impact-resistance. Premium grade hickory, oiled, lightly waxed handles is securely fitted into the axe eye with traditional wooden wedge, glue and metal wedge.
