So that everything stays

the way it should be


Axes are very long-lasting tools that don’t require a lot of maintenance. However, a few little tricks can greatly extend the lifespan of your axe.
Before storing the axe for a longer period of time the blade should be lightly greased to prevent corrosion on the surface. Axes keep best when stored at normal humidity. If the wood dries out, it shrinks and looses it’s ability to flex and absorb vibrations. Similarly, too humid conditions can harm the wood aswell. Never soak a loose handle in water to re-attach it to the head, instead, seek professional assistance.

Ground to normal sharpness

Forest Axe
// extra slim

Extra slim forging of the blade especially for cutting down trees.

Ground to high sharpness

Security wedging
// for all axes and hatchets

A wooden wedge combined with two round steel wedges achieve a connection that can withstand much higher pulling torques that the DIN-norm require for an Axe or hatchet.
