Forged at the Himmelberger Zeughammerwerk in Austria for more than 340 years, this is one of the first models they started with and still going strong! this is a great axe for limbing felled trees and for felling the odd tree. It is the perfect choice for an all-around axe. The thin and razor sharp blade allows for deep penetration with each cut and the extra wide face improves the odds for hitting the mark. The axe has a 1200 gram head, 70cm Hickory handle and an overall weight of 2 kg.
