Black Forest Midweight Woodworker

The Black Forest Woodworker was originally designed for the renowned Black Forest of Germany. It is the quintessential tool for the experienced woodsman. This new axe is a midweight version of our now iconic 1000g Woodworker. With a slightly heavier head weight and longer 70cm handle, this axe gives a bit more when you need it, while still retaining its useful compact size, allowing it to be used as both a midweight work axe and a dependable packing tool. The widened blade allows this axe to perform exceptionally well as a cutting tool, while still being able to handle moderate splitting work. Comes with our standard top grain cowhide 6-7oz leather adjustable sheath.
