A traditional Italian woodworking axe with tomahawk-like proportions and handle type. A phenomenal general purpose 'hawk for crafting, homesteading, bushcraft, or camping. The nail puller notch can be used for lifting cooking pot bails, pulling old fencing wire, or toss a few duplex nails in your woods pack and use it to rapidly assemble and break down temporary shelters and other structures. 1" square hammer poll is fully hardened. 500g head.
This modified version has been outfitted with a custom curved beech handle. This combination yields a very dynamic handle that gives three distinct grip points--below the head, at the top curve, and at the bottom curve--each with its distinct advantages in use. We have also performed additional servicing to the edge to thin and refine it. Comes with a spare original factory poly-jacketed fiberglass handle.
