The Outdoor Axe has been designed to have numerous uses: limbing trees, chopping and splitting firewood, and also as a heavy knife for woodcarving or simply cutting food. Despite its size, the Outdoor Axe can even be used for felling trees when kneeling, thanks to its relatively long handle and heavy head.
The axe has a 2 1/2" face and a 14.75" hickory handle and the head weighs 1 lb. It features a throat collar, and comes with a full grain-leather sheath.
