For thousands of years, the axe has been the most essential of tools. With the help of the axe, mankind has fought battles, cleared land, and butchered game. He who had a sharp axe could defend himself and survive by his wits and the skill of his hand. For this reason, we take great pride in the axes that we sell. For us, an axe is more than a tool--it's a symbol of tradition and self-reliance.
