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 and 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.
