Cutting Edge 3” / 75mm, Head Weight 3½lb / 1.6kg, Handle length 31” / 787mm
The Large Splitting Axe can be used for splitting all types of firewood. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. The axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. The handle has a protective steel collar below the axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip.
The longer handle offers you a greater swing, and is particularly suited to the taller user.
Please note, that unlike the Maul (450), this axe does not have a hardened poll, so should not be used as a sledgehammer on Wedges (460).
Comes to you sharp, with a protective leather sheath, and a copy of The Axe Book
