Wetterlings 176 Forester's Fine Axe 24" Overall, Head Weighs 1.4 Pounds
SAW176: Forester's Fine Axe
The history of the Forester using marking and stamping axes when evaluating the woods, as well as the tradition of the early Swedish miner and homesteader wearing long-handle, status bearing, axes has inspired us to make this axe. The Forester's Fine Axe has a gracefully forged shape, a hammer neck and a long handle. The relatively lightweight head in combination with the longer handle gives the axe good balance and swing at strokes. Use for felling, limbing and at many other occasions. Our Canoeing friends in Canada like to call it the Canoe Axe. We understand their point.
The Forester’s Fine Axe is delivered with a hickory handle and a leather sheath.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
