The classic broad axe is a staple tool for building log cabins and houses. The wide, curved bit removes material very quickly and efficiently leaving a smooth, flat surface in its wake. Its short handle makes it most suitable for use on work that is supported at knee height or higher. Also used in other types of carpentry and joinery, this axe can also be used for carving and sculpting wood. Weight 1.6KG, handle length 20". Hand forged in Sweden.

Having made them for over 130 years, you could say that Wetterlings know a thing or two about axes. Using methods that have changed very little in that time, all of their axe heads are hand forged and finished by 10 carefully selected, highly talented blacksmiths. Every head is forged in a way that requires great skill, exacting methods and, perhaps most importantly, time.

The steel is under the hammer for long periods of time to make it finer in structure. This results in an axe that is not only far stronger but much, much sharper. Being hand forged, each axe we sell is unique and has a personality of its own. Made in Sweden, all Wetterlings axes have hand forged Swedish steel heads, hand turned, American Hickory heartwood handles and are supplied with protective leather sheaths.
