AX1 reinvents the classic axe with innovation and modern features. AX1 is a timeless, heirloom tool. But beyond the simple functions of an ax, the AX1 combines stunning craftsmanship with an innovative tomahawk-style design. The octagonal Appalachian hickory handle adds durability and ergonomics. The wedge-shaped head is made of tempered carbon steel and is cerakoted to offer even greater durability and weather resistance. Rounding off this great piece of gear is a heavy-duty steel, diamond heel in the pommel. Made in Italy and in Hickory, North Carolina.
