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 a bit of warping in the handle.
If selecting the Special Grade option we will thin and refine the factory edge.
