Designed for forestry workers when felling & limbing trees with saw & axe were common. A heavy head and a long handle gives the user energy & force. The handle is suitable for large persons, but will do the job for everybody who has the strength & willingness to use the power of this axe. 

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.
