SAW13H: Wildlife Axe

Hand forged from Swedish quality steel alloyed from iron, carbon, silicon, manganese and vanadium. Hand forging uses presses that deliver many blows, making the axe edges stronger than if they were drop forged. The special axe steel alloy makes high quality hardening possible. After grinding, hardening and tempering, the Wetterling axes keep a Rockwell hardness of 57-58. These are the main reasons the Wetterling axes hold a keen edge with good "sting" longer than most axes. The handles are lathed from American hickory. The best stress capacity and resistance to blows make hickory the wood of choice for good axe handles. 12 1/2" overall. 5 1/4" axe head with 2 3/4" cutting edge. Weighs 1.2 Pound Head. Leather blade cover does not have belt loop. Made in Sweden.

AAAAAA+ Axe/Hatchet
There is something about hand made axes & the qaulity/finish put into this axe is great. It just feels so much better to handle a wetterlings axe over the many synthetic makes available on the market today. Worth the few extra $$$, and such a axe will probably last a life time with correct use & up-keep.

definately gets the job done
I just received it and haven't had the chance to take it out on the trail yet. The quality is fantastic, it is very sharp, and light in weight. I'm thinking I could have purchased the next size larger and still would have been a manageable size/weight for hiking.
