Show Description

The long shaft on this axe delivers a bit more heft for camp chores, splitting, and chopping. It's also hollow, so it's light enough to bring in a pack or on a canoe trip. The compact edge guard secures over the head, and stores in the handle when not needed.

  • Tempered and forged steel holds an edge for a long time.
  • Fibreglass-reinforced polymer shaft is moulded around the head.
  • Lightweight plastic edge guard included.
