Small Splitting Axe
be managed with one hand. Forged and ground to a concave, quite
thin blade at the bit. This design helps the axe to go fast into
the wood - and then split efficiently when the thicker part hits
and pushes apart the wood. The poll of this axe, like the poll
on most axes, is not designed for pounding on a wedge. The head
weighs 2 lb. The face is 2 1/2. The 20 hickory handle
has circular grooves at the grip and steel collar near the head.
It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
