Requirements placed on the axe: A competition requirement for an axe to be at least 610 mm long and have a blade tip of a maximum 152 mm width. Together with its handle, the axe must weight at least 1134g.

Tournament rules: At a distance of 6.1 meters, it is up to the axe thrower to strike the minimum 90 cm diameter target with the leading blade of the axe. Should the axe firmly rest between two lines, then the line with the higher number of points counts. The person with the highest number of points after 3 throws is the winner.

Once used by aboriginal humans as a hunting tool and weapon of war, this double-bladed axe began to be used by forestry workers in the last century for leisure purposes. During long stays in the extensive forests of Canada and the USA, axe-throwing competitions represented a welcome change from the rigors of everyday life.
Today, the throwing axe is a high-quality item of sports equipment. Traditional championships with precisely defined rules are extremely popular. An increasing number of people around the world are becoming enthusiastic about this sport, with its high potential for enjoyment.
