Allagash Cruiser Made in Maine by Brant & Cochran

Here she is! The only Maine wedge pattern camp axe being made today. We are thrilled to carry the Allagash Cruiser, forged in the Brandt & Cochran shop in South Portland, Maine. The head is forged from 1050 carbon steel, this 2.5 lb. axe is hung on a 28" Amish turned hickory handle and comes with a custom Maine-made leather sheath.

Adding to the historical accuracy of the axe pattern, we emboss the year of manufacture and maker's initials on the head --- just like Oakland, Maine's Emerson & Stevens did in the early 1900's. And in honor of the long-term friendship between the founders of Brandt & Cochran and Shelter, they have stamped the "Shelter" logo on the axe head!

The axe comes wicked sharp and tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 56-58 so she'll keep an edge after hours of use.
