Swedish Broad Axe 1900
The pattern of the Broad Axe and the handle is based on old Swedish logging techniques for squaring logs and structural timber of all kinds. There is sufficient space between the "blade's beard" and the handle for the user's fingers. Beveled on two sides (double beveled) or on one side, left or right. The eye (and the direction of the handle) may be straight or angled sideways, right or left, to protect the knuckles. One side beveled, left side, normally goes with an eye angled to the right. If you want deeper visible cuts when squaring logs, you can use a broad axe, double beveled, with the blade bent and the eye angeled to the right or to the left.
The Broad axe has a 7" face and a 20" hickory handle and the head weights 3 lbs. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
Right and Left designations are from the handle end (e.g. users side).
PLEASE CALL BEFORE PLACING ORDER TO CHECK AVAILABILITY ON BROAD AXE 1900. SOME AXE CONFIGURATIONS ARE SPECIAL ORDER AND CAN TAKE WEEKS TO MONTHS.
