Based on a traditional German pattern broad axe, with Goose Wing styling. The broad axe, also known as a hewing axe, is designed for hewing logs into square timbers. This axe has been hand forged by the skilled blacksmiths of family owned Leonhard Mueller & Soehne at the Himmelsberger Zeughammerwerk in Austria from high grade steel and then carefully hardened and tempered for the best combination and hardness and toughness. This Broad Axe is available beveled on the right or left side. The poll and eye are angled enabling the handle and your hands to be kept away from the timber. This design allows you to use the axe to hew the sides of the log with precision. The edge is sharp having been sharpened on a water cooled sharpening stone at the forge, however this does not mean that honing is not needed before work. The head weighs 6 lbs and the face is 13″ wide. Premium grade 17″ long hickory handle, these dimensions may vary due to being hand made. Made in Austria.
