Our Most Popular Axe

Belt Axe

The BeltAxe

The BeltAxe Blade is beautiful investment-cast, high-carbon 440C stainless steel, heat-treated and annealed to hold a knife-like edge through the heaviest cutting and chopping tasks.


The handle is a handcrafted masterpiece of laminated birch, prized by woodworkers for its superior durability. It's secured by a hardened-steel set screw and spring-steel roll pin - features normally found on competition speed axes. 


Includes unique swivel sheath.
