- The axe is made from two types of steel: the axe exterior is made from Damascus steel of no less than 9 different types of steel with ferronickel components designed by our experts. The wedge and the internal working part are made from special steel. The exterior of an axe surface has a distinctive chatoyant pattern. These axes are of unparalleled quality. Blade hardness: 60-62 HRC. Working temperature: from -50 to +80 ˚C. Axes are subjected to deep oxidation to ensure moisture-resistance.
- The handle is made from mature long-fiber Amur oak with the subsequent multi-phased surface treatment to enhance the functionality. The socket is boiled in linseed oil. The oak wedges are fixed with water- resistant joint glue. Carefully chosen handle material together with a phased treatment guarantee a long-life service.
- The case is designed to prevent personal injury and axe damage due to hitting metallic objects during transportation and storage. The case is designed to carry an axe as follows: a) In a hand b) On a waist belt c) On a shoulder (back)
The axe blade is sharpened in such a way that when long used whetting with any (corundum, diamond or hard-alloy) touchstone in a few alternate movements alongside the blade is sufficient. After the procedure the axe regains its high chopping quality.
for long-life service:
- Do not hit the blade on heat-treated metal surface and stones.
- Do not keep an axe in wet ground or water for long periods.
- Do not hit the butt with heavy metallic objects to avoid its damage.
- Do not overheat an axe more than 200 ˚C to avoid the reduction of its hardness.
- The axe is not a throwing tool! Do not throw!
- Do not hit the axe blade against another axe blade, knife, splitting axe or wedge to avoid the damage of both tools due to physic laws.
A dry and relatively clean axe in a case will serve a long-life.
