    Great Multipurpose Axe

    Posted by Alex B on Jul 27th 2023

    If you are in the market for a great universal axe, this is it. The quality of the steel and hickory handle are exactly what you would expect from a top tier tool! Note: Axe arrived without a very sharp edge whcih is most likely a safety measure for shipping. Nonetheless, a few passes on a whetstone and the edge is ready for action.

    Universal forestry axe

    The Universal forestry axe Gold is my new favorite all around axe. It is not to heavy, and has the perfect shape and size handle for most work, and is very sharp. I absolutely love Ox Head Axes!
