This axe can be managed with one hand. Forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. This design helps the axe to go fast into the wood - and then split efficiently when the thicker part hits the wood and pushes apart the wood. The poll on this axe, like the poll on most axes is not designed for pounding on a wedge.
The head weighs 2 lb. The face is 2½-in. The 20-in. hickory handle has circular grooves at the grip and a steel collar reinforcing the head. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
