Blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork with a notch in the head near the shaft, allowing you to hold a hand directly above the edge while
cutting. The shaft is curved and made from hickory.
A carpenter's axe edge profile gives you precision. Here is the 0.8kg head:
First I’d like to praise Axeman for their outstanding service and selection/prices. I’ve scoured de web looking for HB axes and was glad to find a family company with better prices than Amazon. Plus they shipped my order within hours after payment.
Now for the axe, it delivers a lot of bite and control and the edge will hold (if you use it as intended). The reason I gave the review 4 stars is because if you don’t buy the HB’s “premium” line, you don’t get the same care with the axe & haft finish that you can find in mass produced axes, like the Husqvarna’s, which are cheaper in the US but also Swedish steel. Not a big deal for people who like to customize their tools, but my haft came with rasp marks, raised grain, curls at each cheek, and minute anterior/posterior gaps around the eye. I’m considering re-hafting it with a custom 24” haft and transform my carpenter axe into a lower budget Aby (HB’s forest axe).
Excellent craftsmanship! Perfect size for backpacking and portaging. Shipping was fast .I highly recommend axeman to anyone needing bladed tools! Best anniversary gift!
Awesome axe from awesome Canadian company. Will be buying more
Axeman take care of his clients. Great product.
