This is a great lightweight hand axe, ideal to include in your pack without slowing you down, and sturdy enough to still handle all but your most difficult camp tasks. The head is made from solid, durable Marttiini carbon steel, and will hold its edge while challenged with the most punishing camp or wilderness tasks. The head is a bit wider than the heavier models, while still a fair bit lighter, giving more versatility and ease of use.
