An American-made classic, the Hudson Bay is the epitome of bushcraft and camping axes. A light head for its bit dimensions with an ample poll for pounding stakes etc. These are 100% USA made! The heads are forged by a contractor in the Mid-West and heat treated, finished, and hafted in Smyrna, Maine. Our family has an antique Snow & Nealley Hudson Bay and while there are small differences between them, the quality is pretty much on par. A leather mask is included, though it's very slightly short (by about 1/8") to fully cover the bit.
These come with what could best be considered a "courtesy grind" on them rather than a finished edge. If selecting the Special Grade option we will fully finish the edge so it's ready to use out of the box.
