Quite simply…. an extremely good axe!
We don’t profess to be expert metal forgers or axe makers but we know some Swedish boffins who are. Crafted by hand at the Hults Bruk foundry in Sweden, one of the best axe making foundries in world and one of the very few manufacturers left in the world with craftsmen who still command the technique. Many folds and blows go into creating the final axe head shape, a time consuming method of manufacture but one that adds strength, density and durability at each hit. The hardening method leaves a clear hardened zone where the axe can be resharpened without detracting from the strength of the edge and used correctly these axes can last for generations.
We offer 2 sizes of the TT Camp Axe – this is the larger of two with a 440mm long Hickory Handle and 900g simple single bevel grind head ideal for general camp duties such as splitting logs, making kindling and light felling and chopping and the shorter 375mm long handle & 600g head being easier to handle and but less efficient for larger splits and small felling / chopping.
Each axe comes with a basic leather blade edge cover and you can add one of our handmade, canvas axe bags if desired. These bags are made using some of the finest British made fabrics available… a waxed cotton canvas, rainproof outer and a 100% wool inner fabric along with surplus webbing as used in WWII for the spitfire pilots parachute harnesses! Incorporated is a small pocket for keeping sharpening tools and dry kindling handy.
Some care advise is included to keep your axe in good, working condition and you may also want to think about our Camp Tool Roll for some vital tools to keep it sharp and oiled.
Please note the majority of our products are handmade to order and so will incur a short leadtime while we create them specially for you. This usually takes about 3-5 days but if you need a certain delivery date get in touch and try our best to help out.
