The Forest Axe's most common use is felling trees and limbing logs. The 128 American pattern has great balance for precision control. The design makes it useful for heavier wood dimensions and hardwoods like oak or beech and for those who want an extra heavy duty option to the Swedish Forest Axe. Like all Wetterlings axes, the head is Swedish steel with an American hickory handle. Made in Sweden and supplied with a buffalo leather sheath. Weight 1.4kg, length 800mm.

For over 100 years Wetterlings have been making axes.Today 10 blacksmiths proudly continue the tradition of producing world class axes. This means that not one axe is the same as the other and every axe that leaves the factory in Sweden has its own unique character and bears its own distinguishing mark. A hand forged Wetterlings has a hardness of 58-59 degee Rockwell. Each axe is slowly forged, a methodical task that demands time and patience and is entirely dependent upon the skill of the blacksmith. After being hammered for a long period of time the steel becomes extremely strong and can be ground to a high level of sharpness. Wetterlings turn the axe handles using brown heartwood of American hickory. This wood has the impact resistance and strength expected of an axe handle. If you want the world's finest hand made axe in terms of durability and performance buy a Wetterlings.

N.B. By purchasing any axe, you are confirming that you are AGED 18 or over.
