The Hunters Axe is a light & packable axe born out of hunting excursions. Great for clearing for visibility, improving a shelter & making light work of kindling when back at your base camp. It also gives one the extra power needed at slaughter when a knife just isn’t tough enough. Outside of hunting it can be used to fell a tree, is excellent for limbing trees in the yard, carving and a great fire side friend for light kindling work. 

  • 16" curved American Hickory handle
  • 2.2 lbs
  • Hand forged in Sweden

Chopping & stacking CORDs of wood in the White Mountains of Arizona with my dad in fall was a welcomed ceremony. The smells, the labor and the reward of warm fires that kept us sustained throughout the winter, were things I looked forward too every year. I also looked forward to swinging a proper axe...without a good axe the task would have been inefficient and not enjoyable. I was taught early on to always have well crafted tools for the task at hand.

Wetterlings have been hand-made and eye-measured with the greatest care since 1880. The heads are hand forged Swedish carbon alloy steel, this way of forging produces an exceptionally strong & durable edge. The handles are hand shaped American Heartwood Hickory that is strong and fitted with hardwood wedges and steel rings.
