As featured in Knives Illustrated's 2015 Buyer's Guide!
The Calabria pattern axe is a real favorite of ours. The straight bit, while not as deeply penetrating, is more efficient at connecting repeated blows and allows for very rapid felling. Featuring a linear wedge-like (but narrow) taper from the bit to the eye, this tomahawk-sized little axe makes for a good light all-'rounder for both chopping and splitting tasks. The eye is tapered and the handle slipped through the top like the handle of a tomahawk or pickaxe, making it easy to fashion a new one in the event of breakage. 350g head.
The only thing wrong with this example is some runout in the grain of the handle.
If selecting the Special Grade option we will thin and refine the factory edge.
