This is one of the finest throwing or working axes you will find. This ax is hand forged here in the U.S.A. with a steel bit welded into the blade. We have been selling and using these axes for the last 20 years and have never had a complaint or a problem with any of them. These have been used in ax throwing competitions for many years and have won many of those events. The eye of the handle is tapered so the handle will stay tight in the eye. If you hit the bottom of the handle at the block of wood your throwing at, the handle will slide up the eye to help from breaking the handle. The ax is also a great ax to use at camp splitting up your kindling for your camp fires or other camp chores you may have. Great little ax for carrying into the woods for camp chores or your next throwing competition.
The ax overall measurement is 15 1/2", the head measures 4 1/2", with a cutting edge of 3", and weighs just about 1.5 pounds. The cutting edge may vary slightly as these are hand forged.
