About Ochsenkopf Tools

Ochsenkopf ("Ox Head" in English) was founded by the Fahlefeld brothers in 1781 in Remscheid, Germany and is known as the oldest axe forge in Germany. All of its edged tools are manufactured of C60 steel, known for its incredible toughness, and ground to a cambered edge, rather than a simple knife edge - all of which guarantees longer tool life. Handles are hand crafted from ash or hickory, and the Rotband system ensures even greater safety and less likelihood of breakage. Today Ochsenkopf is part of the Gedore Group and offers a wide range of axes, hatchets, competition axes, splitting wedges, and other tools and accessories for the timber or forestry professional or the casual user who appreciates using the finest tools.
