The alloy steel used for these axes is called SS1672, hardened in water to about 55 Rockwell.
A distinct beard allows you to get your fingers and hand close behind the cutting edge for fine work.
Beautiful lightly oiled handles in either Swedish Elm or Ash, traditionally fixed in place with a single wooden wedge.
Hans Karlsson SLOYD AXE is a great all-round, lighter, everyday green woodworking craft axe of superb quality.
